      *Intern Description* San Jose PARK(ing) Day Coordinator

      Summer Internship Position



      Greenbelt Alliance, the San Francisco Bay Area�s advocate for open spaces
      and vibrant places, seeks an intern to help coordinate PARK(ing) Day 2011 in
      San Jose. This position will run a minimum of four months. PARK(ing) Day is
      Friday, September 16, 2011.



      *Position Summary*

      The San Jose PARK(ing) Day Coordinator will coordinate activities around
      PARK(ing) Day in downtown San Jose on Friday, September 16, 2011.



      PARK(ing) Day is an annual event on the third Friday in September where
      artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform
      metered parking spaces into temporary public parks. PARK(ing) Day was
      originally created in 2005 by Rebar, a San Francisco art and design
      collective. Since 2005, the project has blossomed into a worldwide
      grassroots movement: *PARK(ing) Day* 2009 included more than 700 �PARK�
      installations in more than 140 cities on six continents.



      Last year, there were six parking spots transformed into temporary parks in
      downtown San Jose. This year we would like to grow this event even more. A
      Greenbelt Alliance intern organized this event in San Jose last year and
      created a document outlining all the steps required to make PARK(ing) Day
      2011 a success.



      *Key Responsibilities*

      - Coordinate a steering committee of interested PARK(ing) Day
      participants to help with outreach and adoption of temporary �parklets�
      - Oversee promotion of event through use of flyers, social media, word of
      mouth, e-lists and more.
      - Work with City of San Jose on logistics for event
      - Design Greenbelt Alliance�s �park-let�
      - Coordinate day-of event activities

      *Qualifications*

      This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in urban and
      regional planning, public policy or environmental studies. The ideal
      candidate will have strong organizational skills and the ability to
      plan/execute events; facilitate meetings and build excellent working
      relationships with community groups and policy makers; and work
      independently as well as part of a team.

      *Compensation*

      This is an unpaid internship.



      *To Apply*

      Please send a resume to mbeasley@... with subject line: PARK(ing)
      Day Internship.
