RTF Seeks a Marketing and Outreach Volunteer

Posted on January 13, 2020 · Posted in News

The Rural Technology Fund is focused on providing technology education resources to rural and high poverty areas in the US. So far, we’ve put technology resources in the hands of over 100,000 students, and we want to reach 250,000 next. To achieve that goal we are seeking a marketing and outreach volunteer to join the RTF on a regular basis.

The ideal person for this role will be outgoing, resourceful, and excel at coming up with great ideas for expanding the reach of the RTF and furthering our goals. We want someone who has a passion for helping people and believes in the mission of providing access to technology education. Writing and communication skills are incredibly important for this role.

The primary responsibilities for this role will be:

  • Writing blog posts detailing all the good work we’re doing.
  • Sharing news and tidbits about our work on social media (Facebook and Twitter).
  • Creating and maintain an e-mail newsletter for donors and people interested in our mission.
  • Coming up with creative ideas to expand our audience.

The RTF is entirely volunteer-staffed, so this is not a paid position. With that in mind, there are no set work hours and you can work remotely at a time convenient to you. The expected time commitment is 5-10 hours per month. This is a great role for someone just getting into marketing, journalism, or non-profit service and is looking to build their resume, or a stay-at-home parent looking for a way to flexibly contribute to the education of others around their busy schedule.

If interested, please contact me directly at chris@ruraltechfund.org. In your e-mail, tell me why you think you might be a good fit and mention any relevant experience you might have.
