We are looking for someone who is strong on tracking details and helping to keep a group of volunteers moving forward along with you. We are also looking for someone who is comfortable telling us what you need but also listening to what we need. Partnership.
If you are interested in this position, please email us a letter (email@example.com) telling us about yourself including your connection to our work and your experience in being responsible for and managing details.

Writing samples might include letters, proposals, past work items, past newsletters or organizing materials or something you write just for us to show you what your writing is like. Work samples might include reports, curriculum, excel projects (for organizing data) or something that shows how you organize material. Don’t worry about this, don’t spend lots of time compiling a portfolio. We just want to get to know your work as well as your life.
