Volunteer
EFNY is a volunteer based organization and is looking to expand its ranks! We currently have a small group of people running this organization and would like to share these responsibilities with others so that we can do even more to support our children’s education.

If you have 2-3 hours per week to spare to help EFNY, or sporadic availability to undertake a project such as organizing a children’s event, you are welcome! We are a dynamic group of people who speak both English and French. You don’t need to be fluent in French to help, but love of the French language and French-speaking culture does help! Our biggest areas of need are listed below, but please let us know if you have other skills you would like to contribute. At times, we also have paid teaching positions open that can find on our website. If you or someone you know is interested in one of these roles or part of a role, please contact us at info@efny.net. We look forward to working together.

Fundraising and Partnerships: Come help us develop a fundraising and partnership strategy, build relationships, explore new opportunities, and direct our outreach efforts to the Francophone community.

Marketing, PR, media, or advertising specialist: An opportunity for a PR and marketing strategist to start these efforts from the ground up. We are looking for someone to help us promote our small non-profit in the NYC area. Responsibilities might include:

  • developing a strategy for PR, communications, and online presence
  • building tactical communications tools
  • fostering relationships with French-American media outlets.

Site Coordinators:  Site coordinators are volunteers who lead and run EFNY’s enrichment programs at the individual school level. They usually have children in the school, and they represent EFNY within the school. Coordinators are in charge of all matters required to ensure that the program runs smoothly. There are anywhere from 2 to 4 coordinators at each school. Coordinators handle the following responsibilities: budgeting and financials, site logistics, family-school liaison, program marketing, teacher coordination, events, and local library. If you are a parent with a child attending EFNY classes, contact your local coordinator to see if he/she is looking for help.

Volunteer staff coordination: Help run the organization operations. Lend a hand by coordinating the work of our volunteers, from site coordinators to administrative staff. The only experience required is organizational skills, attention to detail, familiarity with Google Docs, comfort with online applications, and a passion for working with people.

Web content manager: Looking for someone with skills in web content management, writing and editing for the web, graphic design and site management. Help develop a voice for our online presence. In addition to writing, editing, and proofreading site content, this person will also work closely with the webmaster to maintain site standards and with the PR/Marketing strategist to craft site promotions, email newsletters, and online outreach campaigns.

Webmaster: Help us keep our website up and running, address issues with our hosting company or email service provider, and track website statistics and analytics.
