Reports to: Project Steering Committee
The City of Los Angeles has recently launched a first-of-its-kind Electric Vehicle Carsharing project focused on service to Disadvantaged Communities in Central Los Angeles, working with BlueCalifornia, a carsharing operator that has launched such systems in Paris and Indianapolis. The City and its technical advisor – the Shared Use Mobility Center (SUMC) has partnered in this work with a Steering Committee comprised of the Koreatown Immigrant Workers Alliance (KIWA), the Salvadoran American Leadership and Education Fund (SALEF), TRUST South LA, and other community-based organizations, to guide the program design and neighborhood outreach towards ensuring that the program supports the needs of LA’s low-income residents.
The Steering Committee (SC) seeks committed and well-qualified candidates to fill a full-time Outreach Manager position, which will lead this work. This is a key position in what represents a groundbreaking partnership to advance transportation equity. The Outreach Manager will seek to produce tangible positive impacts on disadvantaged communities in Central LA.
The Outreach Manager will be a full time salaried staff position of one of the Steering Committee organizations. This is a 15-month grant funded position, with continuation likely but dependent on funding for future project phases. This position will champion community interests while facilitating communication between the community-based Steering Committee, BlueCalifornia, the City, and SUMC. The Outreach Manager and their sponsoring organization will report to the Steering Committee and City on the progress of their efforts on a bi-monthly basis, and will check in on a sometimes daily basis with BlueCalifornia and SUMC.
This individual will play a central role in shaping both the program design and the outreach campaign once the carshare network is launched. As such, the Steering Committee is looking for someone who is an excellent communicator and consensus builder but who also understands the importance of converting curios residents into carshare members.
