Check out this exciting opportunity to be marketing volunteer for Henry Vilas Zoo!  And don't forget to nomination an outstanding student or student org for their commitment to our community.

Henry Vilas Zoo seeks Marketing Volunteers

Friends of the Zoo is looking for Marketing & Public Relations volunteers to assist with a variety of marketing and public relations projects including writing and compiling newsletter articles, press releases, grant proposals, E-blasts and updating the Zoo website.

The volunteer will be matched with a specific project that matches their skill set, experience, and interests. Volunteering on the marketing team at the Zoo is a fantastic way to apply your experience to a worthwhile community cause, build your skills, and enhance your resume.

Ideal volunteers should have strong research, interview and writing skills, the ability to work independently, have experience working with website content management tools (Mail Chimp, IMS Site Manager), and understand web-based graphic requirements. We are willing to provide technical training for volunteers with strong writing skills.

Weekly time commitment is flexible. Minimum length of commitment is 12 weeks.

Interested volunteers will be asked to attend an “All Aboard” Zoo Volunteer preview event, submit a volunteer application, resume, cover letter, & writing sample to lynn@vilaszoo.org.
