The Global Autism Project is seeking a VOLUNTEER Event Director for its signature fundraising event, the Paddle for Autism Awareness scheduled to occur on August 24th in Los Angeles. The Global Autism Project works with children with autism in developing countries. Every summer, in several cities across the country, children with autism kayak (many of them for the first time in their lives) with their friends and families!

Duties of the Event Director include:
Leading kayakers on event day
Recruiting key volunteers
Contacting local vendors for donations of gear and/or sponsorships
Overseeing the smooth-running of the event
Assist City Leader in registering participants
Help plan the logistics of the event (includes being in constant contact with the venue and participants)

Flexible hours mostly work from home
3-5 hours per week
Participate in weekly conference calls with the city leader and on-site coordinator

Qualified Candidates will:
Work well under pressure
Enjoy working with people
Be outgoing and have a positive attitude
Be reliable and motivated
Some kayaking knowledge is preferred

This is a great opportunity for an undergraduate student or a recent graduate to gain valuable leadership experience while gaining insights on event planning. If you want to add valuable experience over the summer while making a difference but also have other commitments, this position might be perfect for you.
