Marketing and Events Coordinator More Than Words
Youth work two paid jobs at MTW: in our $2M bookselling business learning critical skills and a “YOU Job” where they advance personal goals in education, work, and life. MTW is in the midst of a game-changing expansion in the South End of Boston, growing to take over the first floor of our building with a new bookstore, marketplace, and community event space, and serve 60% more youth. In this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA member will help to build More Than Words’ new business line of hosting events and renting out our space. Serving with the Associate Director of Events, the Events and Marketing Coordinator will help build marketing systems and strategies, research and grow rental clients, engage youth participants in running events, and document and prepare training materials about this new model. The member will have the opportunity to learn while serving, develop new systems, gain highly useful leadership and outreach skills, and see our young people grow first hand, all in a dynamic, fast-paced, team-oriented, and supportive environment. This position will be based at our Boston site in the South End. A $100 monthly housing reimbursement and a $75 monthly transportation reimbursement are available to members serving at MTW.
