Conversations Unbound, Inc (“CU”) seeks a new member to join the Business Development team this May 2021! 


Conversations Unbound, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, empowers forcibly displaced individuals as paid online Arabic, Spanish, French, German, or cultural course tutors for college students. More than just a language conversation program, CU is a means for cultural exchange, sharing of ideas, and narrative shift. Our dynamic, hard-working, and innovative volunteer team thrives on a start-up, entrepreneurial spirit, and dedication to facilitating meaningful cross-cultural relationships. We believe that learning from forcibly displaced tutors challenges traditional hierarchies of education by centering migrants as producers of knowledge.


Business Development:

As a member of the Business Development team, you will gain valuable non-profit experience working with a dynamic and fast-paced startup organization. From the beginning of your work with CU, you are encouraged to determine your project ideas and run with them, giving you the space to see your ideas come to life within the context of our organization’s objectives. As a member of the Business Development team, you will have one-on-one mentorship opportunities with team leads and the CU president. You will also have the chance to interact with all sections of CU including our dedicated admin team and tutors. 


Please note that this is a remote and unpaid volunteer opportunity. This position is a three month commitment starting in May/June 2021. Upon successful completion of the role, you may be invited to join the team as a Program Assistant.

  • Developing social media strategy that utilizes each platform’s strengths and increases engagement with our accounts

  • Drafting regular communications products such as blogs, social media captions, and emails
  • Creating graphic content 
  • Managing donor relationships and building a community of CU donors and “Friends of CU”
  • Researching and writing grant proposals


Requirements:

  • Proactive with a start-up mentality
