Volunteer opportunity description

Sustainable Jersey City is looking for volunteers to volunteer on the following teams and in the following roles:

Volunteer Coordinators: We have a reasonable process in place but need someone to focus on getting it done: onboarding new volunteer team members and project leaders, running orientation meetings, connecting potential volunteers to the right project leader, and helping project leaders with their volunteer training process.

Community Education & Social Events Team: Interested to develop educational programming and plan fun events for the public? SJC hosts a myriad of educational talks, workshops and special events intended to evolve a learning and knowledge sharing community across various networks. Another goal is to bring like-minded sustainability focused people together for social events in a relaxed setting, like our Green Drinks +ART series. These events need to be planned and managed to be effective and fun! Join SJC’s growing events production team to bring your topic ideas into a public forum and to help us manage the logistics for our events.

Online Promotion / Communications Team Members: The success of our projects depends on community awareness. If online promotion and social media outreach is your specialty, you can do this for a number of SJC initiatives. As we tool a new communications strategy for growing the Sustainability Movement in Jersey City, individuals with insightful perspectives, business writing skills and media awareness are needed. Guest Bloggers Wanted !

Ambassadors / Presenters: The success of our efforts depends on more awareness amongst residents, businesses, other community organizations and City government. If being a spokesperson is your specialty, we can use your support.

Grant Writers: There is a lot of public and private money available for the projects we are doing, but we need more resources to apply for these funding opportunities. If you have expertise you can lend to our efforts on this front or would just like to dig-in with a group of passionate Project Leaders to get their programs funded, we welcome your support
