Social Media for Social Change!

Elevate your social media know-how while supporting the healthy birth movement.

 

Are you a birth junkie who uses social media to spread positive messages about childbirth options?

Are you a midwife, doula, maternal health advocate or mother looking to take your social media skills to the next level?

Would you like to support a national midwifery organization with a growing social media presence?

Midwives Alliance of North America is seeking applicants for a one year volunteer position as an Online Community Manager (OCM).

As a Midwives Alliance OCM, you will:

  • Receive a 4-6 week training in the comfort of your own home, led by a social media expert.

  • Learn the cutting edge tools and strategies that will help you spread your birth know-how, build your online credibility, enhance online relationships and mobilize people, and deepen your skills as a strategic community builder.

  • Learn to use social media strategically to spread messages about healthy pregnancy, birth, postpartum. breastfeeding, parenting, and midwives.

  • Work on a team with others that love social media and birth as much as you do!

Preferred applicants should:

  • Love social media!

  • Be familiar with and regularly use at least one social media platform (like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, blogging)

  • Love people!

  • Enjoy working in teams interacting with a diverse pool of online users, can be respectful to others even when there's controversy.

  • Love talking birth!

  • Have been known to "talk placentas" at a dinner party . . . and are familiar with current topics in midwifery, childbirth options and women's health issues.

  • Have time to learn and engage. The online training takes 2 hours a week for 4-6 weeks and will be conducted via interactive online platforms.

  • Have time to volunteer. Each OCM is expected to volunteer 2-3 hours per week on a MANA social media platform, with our startup time (February-March) and 2 other times per year being even more intensive.

  • Make a commitment. Because of this significant free training opportunity, the Midwives Alliance asks each volunteer to commit to being a MANA Online Community Manager for a one year term.

Trainings will be held on Tuesdays from 5:00p - 6:30p (Eastern Time). Participants must be available on those dates for the training sessions. The training will be recorded for birth professionals who miss the sessions due to births or family emergencies.

If you are interested - or know someone else who might be - please visit this link by January 30, 2015. Thank you. We look forward to working with you!

This is a great thing for MANA to take on! I wish I was in a position to be able to do it myself, but I'd be truly mad to add another thing onto my plate. Good luck with the search! I hope you have plenty of lovely candidates to choose from.
