Description

The world needs you – your heartbreak, your hope, your action - now more than ever.

Life Together is a ten-month fellowship and leadership development project that matches young leaders (21-32 years of age) with mission-based non-profit organizations and churches throughout Eastern Massachusetts, and then trains these fellows through spiritual practice, shared leadership models, and community organizing tools.

During their year with Life Together, fellows work for social justice, grow as leaders, and live in community with other fellows. Fellows will serve from August 2019 until June 2020, with the option to stay for a second year. Life Together is a strategic initiative of The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts and an affiliate program of the Episcopal Service Corps.

Position Description
The Family Van is a mobile clinic founded in 1992 that works with residents of low-income Boston neighborhoods to improve the health and well-being of residents and their families. By taking preventative healthcare directly to underserved communities, TFV improves health outcomes among people whose needs are not fully met by the traditional healthcare system.

The Outreach and Communications Coordinator will work to raise awareness about our programs and services with external partners in target communities. This person will work with our team and volunteers to do community outreach both in the community and via social media, deliver workshops with staff, and collaborate with other organizations. This person will execute communications strategies and projects, manage all aspects of digital content platforms, and will create content for programs for social media presence and will oversee Twitter feed. The coordinator will be trained on providing culturally appropriate health education, information, and outreach in community-based settings, assist community members with access to community resources, engage target populations in wellness activities as well as chronic disease self-management, and provide outreach to potential and existing clients in the community and at events. This person will also train new volunteers and work with the volunteers in the community.
