New Paltz for Refugees (https://www.newpaltz4refugees.org/
) is a grassroots, volunteer, non-profit group working with other agencies and NGOs to resettle those in need to our New York State, Hudson Valley community. The organization seeks a volunteer for the role of communications, public relations and volunteer outreach. New Paltz for Refugees is narrowing its attention to focus on 2 very needy families, one of which arrives here in the next few weeks, and the group will need much assistance. Having a student who can send out updates of progress and of the need for volunteers
or donations would be so helpful as well as to deal with any media outreach.
The ideal candidate will have an interest in the subject of humanitarian aid, social justice and global social issues. The candidate is required to be proficient in writing, public relations and social media posting, as well as possess strong interpersonal relationship skills. Candidates will need to work independently, but also participate in team meetings and projects.
