Founded in San Francisco in 1902, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired is one of the most progressive blindness agencies in the world. A private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, LightHouse’s mission is to promote the independence, equality and self-reliance of people who are blind or have low vision. We do this through teaching, consulting, community building and advocacy in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
The LightHouse is currently in a period of growth, with more than 100 employees and an increased capacity to carry out our mission. In addition to direct services and blindness skills training, we invest in new technology, consult on design for blind consumers, and work to de-stigmatize blindness around the world.
We are seeking an outreach coordinator to spearhead LightHouse’s communications to new and returning students, stakeholders and collaborators. Part publicist and part community advocate, the outreach coordinator’s function is to increase the LightHouse’s connectivity to our community through social media, email marketing, PR, personal outreach and public speaking. The outreach coordinator also maintains our lists of contacts and supports the team in both online and in-person communications as needed.
An energetic professional who can master the foundational tasks of maintaining our social media accounts, email marketing systems and press contacts will find significant room for growth in our new communications department. We use written pieces, video, audio and photography to tell the stories of our community, and the outreach coordinator must be fluent in how to use today’s tools to push these stories to the people who need to hear them. Communications is a small, agile team where each individual is expected to think creatively, produce steadily, and be prepared to juggle deadlines. A key part of this job is to work to increase referrals and participation of blind people in Lighthouse programs.
