Do It Day is a half-day event, held during the first weekend of the academic year, that engages hundreds of Trinity students, faculty, staff, and alums in service projects throughout the Hartford area.  The purpose of Do it Day is to provide meaningful and useful assistance to community organizations, as well as to foster on-campus a greater appreciation and commitment to our community of Hartford.

Since its inception, Do It Day has grown each year from an event that in its first year attracted 150 students and 11 community organizations to the 2013 event (the 15th year) at which over 700 members of the Trinity community worked at 62 worksites (with over 55 community organizations) in the Hartford area.  We are aiming to build on this success as we are now halfway through our second decade.

We have been fortunate to have been able to surpass our goals each year and build upon the success of the past.  The Do It Day Coordinators (there are two) are responsible for planning, overseeing, and implementing all aspects of Trinity’s first and one of its biggest service events of the academic year.  The responsibilities of the person in this position include, but are not limited to, the following

* Recruiting organizations to be involved as worksites
* Recruiting students, faculty, and administration participants 
* Soliciting food donations 
* Coordinating transportation to worksites and for food pick-ups 
* Coordinating all visibility and publicity, including flyers, social media, T-shirt design
* Writing and completing a final report on the event
* Following up with all participants (volunteers and worksites)
* Developing and sticking to a timeline to accomplish all the projects goals
Individuals interested in this position should have some experience in event planning, volunteer coordination, community interaction, etc.  However, what is also important is a good work ethic, willingness to learn, the ability to manage multiple tasks, and a sincere desire to have a Do It Day that is better than any prior and, in general, to coordinate the best event possible. 
This job is approximately 30 hours/week for the summer, and pay is based on the student-wage schedule.  In addition, housing is provided. 
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send a resume/CV and a letter to Joe Barber at by April 3, 2014.
