We are seeking a half-time Outreach Coordinator! This individual will work with CERCLL’s core team to plan and implement educational outreach to K-12 schools, colleges, and the wider general public, and to aid in the development of our professional development and other programming. We are looking for a highly motivated, professional individual, who has a demonstrated ability to work with people from a variety of cultural, linguistic and educational backgrounds. They should have a background that includes event planning and program development, and experience working with K16 communities is preferable. The incumbent should have strong communication and organizational skills, an ability to multitask and to keep to deadlines, and to work well both independently and in a team.

The Outreach Coordinator’s work changes throughout the year, but duties at various times include:

  • Planning and implementing events such as an annual campus language fair for University of Arizona students, professional development workshops for language educators at K-16 levels, and community-based activities intended to further the reach of resources generated by CERCLL’s projects.
  • Responding to requests for CERCLL’s participation in presentations, community fairs and other types of outreach events, soliciting help, when necessary, from other staff and volunteers.
  • Extending CERCLL’s contacts with individual teachers, local and regional school districts, and the Arizona Department of Education.
  • Collecting data to evaluate outreach program effectiveness and consulting with program participants to improve program quality.
  • Assisting with the creation of electronic and print communication materials related to outreach, including marketing materials and web resources.
  • Contributing to grant (and other) reports that require data on outreach activities.
  • Assisting with the identification of and application to funding sources that will enhance existing projects run through CERCLL.
  • Working with CERCLL’s Directors to support other programs and activities, especially conferences and educational resources.

Because responsibilities involve working at events in the wider local and regional community, this is not a remote position and it will require work at the University of Arizona. The position is half-time at 20 hours per week (hours TBA), and comes with full University of Arizona benefits.
