Community Relations and Outreach
We are looking for skilled social marketing gurus, newsletter ninjas and bridge-building wizards to drive our communications and outreach. Your work here is essential to connecting the community to the essential needs of our nonprofit partners. Core responsibilities include keeping up with emerging volunteer needs, promoting volunteer opportunities across channels, updating the volunteer portal, leveraging web analytics to inform our outreach strategies and nurturing relationships with community partners.

Be prepared, regardless, to do a little bit of everything. In exchange, we’ll provide you with hands-on experiences across the essential operations of a grassroots nonprofit.
Stories Project: Lead Editors, Contributors and Story Sleuths
The year 2020 brought to our crescent coast and lush green valleys devastation: the global pandemic and historic wildfires. In response Community Builders embarked to find hope in the shape of moments of creativity, resilience and community building. Stories of simple acts of kindness that showcase our capacity as a community when united around the common good.
You will be critical to our growing team of community-driven creatives. We are looking for lead editors with an eye for detail and good storytelling, as well as story contributors and sleuths to identify and develop written, visual or podcast-like content for our multimedia online story showcase.
