End Hunger CT Looking For Passionate Interns!

End Hunger CT Looking For Passionate Interns!
EHC! has partnered with Share Our Strength in the CT No Kid Hungry campaign in ending childhood hunger in the state by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like Summer Meals.

Through the support of Sodexo Foundation and in collaboration with EHC!, Share Our Strength has created a program to involve college-aged Youth Ambassadors in the fight against childhood hunger. Youth Ambassadors will be working to improve access to Summer Meals programs by:
• 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.
• Organizing Summer Meals outreach events in multiple regions in the state. This includes leading community outreach efforts, volunteer recruitment, and volunteer management.
• Visiting Summer Meals sites to collect stories and best practices.

Youth Ambassadors will receive a stipend of no more than $1500 plus a potential bonus of $500.

Interested applicants should apply online at http://nokidhungry.org/ambassadors by Tuesday, March 31st 2015.

Questions may be directed to Genevieve Caron at gcaron@endhungerct.org.
