Job Posting: Social Media Coordinator

Social Media Coordinator

CRE Outreach is a non-profit arts organization that provides multi-disciplinary performing arts participation and performance opportunities to under-served populations in Los Angeles. CRE Outreach is comprised of dreamers and believers. Conventional opinion tells us to focus, but we are unique in the breadth of programs we run and the people we serve: film school for the blind, theater for military veterans, music for people with autism, and school arts programs for low-income youth.

CRE is an organization that colors outside of the lines, existing in the realm of possibility and creativity. We believe in saying ‘yes’ more than saying ‘no’ and we aren’t afraid to reach beyond the limits of what others say we can or can’t do. It is this spirit of pushing the boundaries of what’s possible that invites all of our participants, staff, contributors and audiences to live their wildest dreams and best lives regardless of personal circumstances.

We’re looking for a Social Media Coordinator, who can help us tell this story to everyone—from audiences to donors. We want to hire a motivated and creative individual to run our social media platforms. Applicant must be experienced with and have successfully run social media campaigns and be an engaging writer and researcher. The job will consist of a creating strong social media presence for CRE and its six core programs, connecting with other similar organizations and efforts, and increasing its numbers of followers on the different platforms.

  • Proficient with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and LinkedIn
  • Great writer and able to produce frequent, well-written content
  • A passion for the arts and excited to share stories from our three core constituencies: at-risk youth, people with disabilities, and military veterans

To Apply

This position is part-time with an average of 4-5 hours per week at a rate of $20/hour. Some weeks during performances have more hours and some weeks during off-season have fewer hours.

To achieve our mission of transforming lives through the arts, CRE Outreach commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable community. To that end, CRE Outreach is committed to ensuring that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of our staff, board, policies, program, participants, and audience members. We encourage applications particularly from minority groups, military veterans, and people with disabilities.

For the 5th year in a row, CRE Outreach is a charity partner of the LA Marathon to raise funds for their signature program, “Theatre by the Blind.” Our program helps visually impaired youth, teen, and adult participants become empowered actors that push the limits of their disability through the dynamic medium of theatre.

Our adult performing group is the only entirely blind adult theatre troupe in the country that creates and performs original theatrical works. Theatre by the Blind provides participants with a constructive and creative forum to confront their challenges while informing the public, raising awareness, and challenging popular misconceptions about the capabilities of the blind.

Show some love to our amazing blind actors by sponsoring their run!
