This position will also set up conversations with Intercambio students and teachers in Boulder County and will look for overlapping ideas/feedback that can benefit our local participants and people using our platform in other communities.
This position will also help with the recruitment of new participants. This may involve researching which communities have the biggest unmet demands for adult English classes or from potential volunteer teachers. We need to identify to the most effective ways to outreach to potential participants, improve social media presence, explore paid advertisement options, and grassroots possibilities. This position might also reach out to some of the many organizations nationwide that use Intercambio's English curriculum and are a part of our network.
