BeachCorps is preparing for our big summer launch in 2018! We've already hired two great college social media specialists, Liza Villanueva and Julianna Carfaro. Now we are going to hire a limited number of campus representatives who will have a combination of social media duties and representational duties on campus!
We see this as a win-win. College students are increasingly interested in new ways to engage and contribute; BeachCorps needs the creative talent and spirit of college kids, so we're hiring!
Working for BeachCorps as a campus representative would be a great opportunity to gain some good experience, resume material, and exposure while also allowing for some creativity in fulfilling your duties and a very long timeline to fulfill and no pressure. Being a BeachCorps Campus Representative would also give someone an inside track on a free trip to the Dominican Republic, as currently any student who was able to get 10 other students to take a BeachCorps trip to the Dominican Republic this summer 2018 or for Spring Break of 2019 would get a free trip (airfare, hotel, volunteer excursion). Obviously being a campus representative who did a great job would also give you an inside track on future BeachCorps openings!
Many companies use campus representatives to market trips to Cancun in this same way. Cancun trips are fun but often involve very poor personal conduct decisions. How great would it be if we could create another option that combined the education, service dedication and camaraderie of college alternative spring breaks with the nice hotels, nightlife and beach fun of Cancun, but with policies that ensured that students, who could legally drink, didn't abuse alcohol? Yes, it could be done by proper education, training and by requiring students to put a deposit down to ensure they don't abuse alcohol while still allowing those who wish to drink legally and responsibly in the Dominican Republic to do so. We plan to have one or two trips this summer and a Spring Break pilot trip in 2019. Any Campus Representative who took the trip would probably support our Recycling for Education program that gives kids school supplies for supporting recycling and trash clean up in their communities.
Duties of BeachCorps Campus Representative (10 hours total to be completed before the summer break 2018):
