This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in specific programs at ENW. Those people interested in walking programs, helping others with block parties, or training members of the public on how to start a program would be great in one or more of these roles. The Program Specialist will provide resources, train volunteers, and help them implement a specific program in the community.
The Program Specialist will prepare program package material and either mail it to Community Reps (or community program leaders) and/or meet with them to distribute the material. They will track where the specific programs are being done and who they are being done for in the community. They ensure that all materials are provided and returned to ENW (when necessary).
Skills required include use of MS Excel, MS Word, email and web-based storage (Google Drive). Program Specialists will work closely with the Program Director to help maintain programs.
