Regional Social Media Champion: Are you a fan of BTSADV but are unable to attend our events in-person? We have an amazing opportunity for you to help us engage your state in advocacy, awareness, and camaraderie – the BTSADV way. We have developed a series of private Facebook pages that are designed to engage survivors in conversation and fellowship with local survivors in their area. Our pages are setup to connect survivors and build meaningful relationships among members. The Regional Facebook Admin would be responsible for maintaining one local page based on his/her geographical location. This page should follow our Facebook guidelines and should also revolve around the culture of BTSADV. The Ambassador would be required to vet each potential member, post daily, engage with all members, and promote BTSADV events and programs as they roll out nationally. This volunteer would report directly to our Regional Facebook Coordinator and would be required to stay in constant communication with our team upon onboarding.
