Through the support of Sodexo Foundation and in collaboration with End Hunger CT!, Share Our Strength has created a program to involve youth in college in the fight against childhood hunger. Youth Ambassadors will be working to improve access to Summer Meals programs by:
· Organizing Summer Meals outreach events in multiple regions in the state. This includes leading community outreach efforts, volunteer recruitment, and volunteer management.
· Working with community leaders, elected officials, and other partners to increase awareness of the free Summer Meals program.
· Managing the Summer Meals website, social media, and statewide Summer Meals site data.
· Visiting Summer Meals sites to collect stories and best practices.
Daily access to a car and use of a personal laptop and mobile phone required.
Youth Ambassadors will receive a stipend for no more than 40 hours of work per week for 10 weeks (including one flex week for vacation). Youth Ambassadors will be based in Hartford, CT and will report to a national No Kid Hungry staff member and an EHC! staff member.
Interested applicants should apply online at http://nokidhungry.org/ambassadors by Friday, April 7th 2017.
