Hello everyone,

I just wanted to get the word out that we will be posting positions very soon for either an Internship or an AmeriCorps member for Participatory Budgeting Greensboro. This person will assist in volunteer management and outreach to ensure broad participation and engagement in the Participatory Budgeting process. Experience with volunteer management, door to door canvassing and clipboarding, and communicating and relating to diverse communities are all extremely beneficial. We are hoping to fill this position as soon as possible. The AmeriCorps Member position would be a full-time equivalent and would include a monthly stipend and education award at the completion of the program. The internship position would be part time. 

Please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested and refer any questions to me at Thank you!

Kind regards,

Valerie Warren, Community Engagement Coordinator, Participatory Budgeting Project
