2010 - Present
As DOT's Community Manager, I coordinate communications, develop communications and engagement strategies, write, produce, and edit web content, manage a community of thousands of youth, and mentor a network of seven global teams as they navigate social media, blog, and produce creative projects.
Highlights so far:
- Visiting many of DOT's countries of operation to document the impact of programs through video, photos, and interviews with beneficiaries;
- Establishing a large internal online community of 6000+ youth from around the globe based on a foundation of digital storytelling;
- Spearheading a series of annual creativity festivals where global youth could use their own voices and lived experiences to share the impact of DOT's work. The DOT festival series was highlighted in the Stanford Social Innovation Review;
- Creating the organization's first online, interactive annual report (http://2013.dotrust.org).
