“Words are sacred. They deserve respect if you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.”

― Tom Stoppard

Be a CLAM digger: volunteer

Nonprofits depend on more than goodwill and tax-deductible funding. CLAM and our partner organizations for our recent and current initiatives—Coastal Rep, KPDO, Coast Pride, and the schools and organizations supporting the student e-magazine—also need volunteers to help us to turn these dreams into realities.

Many hands make light work, as the saying goes. We welcome volunteers of all ages to help create our initiatives that will benefit the entire Coastside. Here are some of the opportunities to help CLAM make some magic:

 Student E-magazine:

• Managing the program
• Organizing WordPress and magazine design mentoring
• Setting up cloud-based collaboration platform
• Liaising with schools and student leaders
• Helping the students organize a production and editorial schedule
• Liaising with other media
• Publicity and promotion for the e-magazine

Other CLAM needs:

• Identifying grant sources
• Writing grant proposals
• Coordinating social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, blogs)
• Managing our Coastside Gives effort
• Liaising with cultural organizations (such as ALAS, Puente, and I.D.E.S.)
• Liaising with Coastside restaurants through the Chamber of Commerce for community-based fundraising
• Assisting CLAM with bookkeeping
• Communicating with donors and CLAM’s community supporters
