Educating our solar energy beneficiaries on the technology and benefits of renewable energy is a primary component of PjT.

  • Keep team/board members updated on global news relating sustainability, renewables and environmentalism as a whole
  • Create and submit 2-3 posts (pictures, captions and appropriate hashtags) every MONDAY at 12pm ET for PjT board to approve
  • Relay PjT organization updates to supporters via social media
  • Convey news updates: rather than using photos attached to articles, you may create graphics that you feel better suit the messaging behind each social media post or campaign
  • Share updates on our current/upcoming projects
  • Analyze and access post performance on each social media platform and propose effective posting
  • strategy for each respective platform (i.e. Strategy may be different for FB than IG or Twitter)
  • Join monthly check-in calls that is TBD every month

Applicants must have a strong interest in social media strategy. Background in graphic design and digital media is an asset.
