Cascadia Prepared is a 501(c)3 nonprofit operating out of Eugene, OR to build earthquake resilience. Our focus is generating content that can be used to inspire businesses and communities to work together in preparation. We are just getting our feet on the ground in terms of fundraising and strategy development and are looking for a social media manager to help us build a reputation and get our name in the public eye.
This position will run our digital communication and social media with daily posts, campaigns, and special features that engages the public and builds community awareness. The internship is best suited for an experienced individual interested in helping a well-organized, grassroots (yet growing quickly) nonprofit. Our current social media presence is nonexistent and we are looking for an inspired and passionate person to build the program from the ground up. Our previous intern has created a week’s worth of content to be scheduled to post.
This position is 10-15 hours per week (mostly remote with only a few required office hours, flexible schedule), $10.25/hour.
