Infographics, Invites, and Logo Design – YMC Job Fair 2016
Since 2014 I have been helping to support the Youth Mentoring Collective’s environmental job fair. I have been analyzing event data and creating infographic reports since our first job fair. This year’s infographic includes a lot of the same basic information as the previous two reports but with an updated look. I also created a logo and matching flier for the event.
Making a dull safety training memorable
Each year at the Oregon Zoo over 100 new teenage volunteers arrive, ready to work all summer. Before they head out, each teen goes through close to 25 hours of training. One key piece of the training is safety protocol and radio use. In years past, the presentation was bare bones and pretty dull. I recreated the training with fun, themed visuals and a conversational style. The training has been modified and utilized by several other departments and the teens feel much more prepared than they previously have.
Youth Job Fair Infographic
A group that I’m involved with in Portland, the Youth Mentoring Collaborative, has been running a job fair since 2014 with the intent of getting diverse youth connected to environmental careers.We’re in year 3 of the event, and I’m once again helping with some set up (including designing a flyer), as well as day-of support. I have also been helping to take the surveys collected from participants and turn them into presentations and infographics.
Raptor ID Training and Field Trip
ZAP teens at the Oregon Zoo sometimes get to participate in trainings designed to expand their knowledge of local wildlife and to get the involved with partner organizations. One of those events is Portland Audubon’s Raptor Road Trip – a day designed to get people out during a winter day to look at our local raptor species. When a guest speaker couldn’t make it to one of their meetings at the very last minute, I quickly whipped up a short orientation to raptors and how to identify species for the upcoming field trip.
Outreach Map Report
The Zoo Animal Presenters program at the Oregon Zoo works with partner organizations in the community to present outreach programs at schools. I created a map of all outreaches completed in 2015 and labeled partners. This map has been used in annual reports and grant reporting. It’s a great way to visualize the reach of the program in the Metro area and to showcase partnerships.
