Details: Working with our partners, the March of Dimes strives to develop and implement local programs that will ultimately improve the health of babies. Through our network of chapters and volunteers, these programs reach over a million people across the country and Puerto Rico each year. We provide information and services designed to prevent premature birth and birth defects and to promote healthy pregnancies.
Job Description: There are many opportunities at the March of Dimes for FGCU students. We are looking for individuals with ideas, passion, knowledge and the willingness to learn!
You will have the opportunity to work with an FGCU Alumni who has went through the process and can help you in multiple areas on your path to becoming a successful graduate.
We always need help getting ready for events but what we really want to expand on is educating the youth on what the March of Dimes is about by integrating its mission into FGCU.
We have opportunities for PR and Marketing, Education, Nursing and just about anything else your mind can think of. We want you to have an idea and we want to be able to help the idea become an action that will better the March of Dimes!
