Transportation Riders United

Seeking Community Outreach and Social Media Interns/Volunteers

TRU is seeking help for our big summer outreach campaign: #TransitMatters!

As in previous summers, TRU staff, interns, and volunteers will be traversing the region to talk transit. We’ll be setting up booths at fairs and festivals, we’ll be wandering around prior to fireworks and concerts, we’ll be presenting at community meetings, and much more. We’ll be engaging people in person and on social media. Wherever we go, we’ll talk with people with two main goals: Dump the Pump Press Event at Cadilac Square Park downtown Detroit

1) Start people thinking about and sharing why transit matters to them, their families, and their communities and

2) Get people involved in the RTA‘s transit planning process.

And we need help to succeed in this effort!

We have posted two position descriptions for student interns and/or dedicated volunteers willing to commit at least 20 hours a week. Use the below links to download the position descriptions for responsibilities, requirements, the application process and other details. We are seeking: tabling outside

These can be done for course credit if your college enables it. We provide free bus passes and can offer a stipend to highly qualified individuals. These are great opportunities to build skills, add substantive experience to your resume, and get actively involved in improving public transit for southeast Michigan.

Resumes received by April 13 will receive priority consideration.
