Arlington’s Community Health Protection Bureau is looking for a volunteer with marketing or communications experience “to partner with a community-based coalition working to address underage binge drinking and drug use in Arlington County.”

Responsibilities include working with a team to develop program image; developing marketing plan; and creating various promotional materials such as pamphlets, brochures, and press releases.

Desired qualifications include: communications/marketing experience, excellent organizational skills, attention to detail and accuracy, good interpersonal skills, and proficiency in Microsoft Office (Word, Publisher, PowerPoint). This is a great opportunity for someone looking to expand their portfolio and work with a community group.

This is a Virtual Volunteer position. The volunteer will need to meet with the program team periodically and communicate on a regular basis via e-mail and phone. All work can be done off-site.

      Meh, you’re overusing that one. It was very funny before.

    Can we meet for drinks at Spider Kellys to discuss? I got the first round!

    • mehoo

      Sure! I’ll discuss anything for a free beer.

    They should outsource this out to a local university/college and a work study. Easy for the students and good learning experience. Best of all…won’t cost the county tax payers a cent.

      Good idea – college students are highly informed about underage drinking.

    If you want to do advertising towards young people, you have to do it right…
