Website Manager Intern – Volunteer

Guiding Eyes Outdoors (GEO) is a registered 501(c)3 organization that provides life-changing outdoor adventures to those in need throughout North Carolina. We proudly serve military veterans, first responders, the blind and visually impaired, and children that have lost parents during service to our country and their communities. Our goal is to provide a platform whereby individuals who would not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors can be paired with those willing to assist and teach them. We facilitate mentorships that are mutually beneficial to both parties.  We are currently seeking a creative, talented, self starter to join our team and manage our WordPress website as our Website Manager Intern.
