Social Media and Marketing Advisor

Project Description

The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Civic Education (MINJEC) in Cameroon has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Social Media and Marketing Advisor. MINJEC is responsible for the organization and promotion of volunteering in Cameroon. Departments and individuals within the Ministry focus on the different aspects of volunteering, including recruitment, training, and monitoring of volunteer activities.

The PCRV will work hand in hand with a MINJEC Volunteer to support MINJEC in the advancement of their branding and social marketing goals related to the development of both traditional and social media marketing campaigns and materials. The PCRV will also co-design a social media marketing campaign to expand outreach of the new application portal for both interested volunteers and potential host organizations. The overall goal of the assignment is to promote the expansion, professionalism, and sustainability of host country volunteering efforts.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Cameroon together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
