Project need

YALDA is looking for someone very experienced in social media strategy and implementation to help us do the following:
1. Increase the number of LIKES on your Facebook page to more than 100K
2. Increase the number of comments and post engagement on our Facebook page
3. Increase the number of re-tweets and engagement with our Twitter account.
We hope to have this project done by end of November. Do you have a strong passion for the development of Africa? Do you have innovative ideas on how the youth can contribute to Africa’s development? Do you want to work directly with the African Development Bank, UN Habitat, the African Union, and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa? Do you want to attend meetings at the UN Headquarters in New York? Do you love to network and meet people from all over the world? Then this position is for you!

YALDA is a networking organization that is truly Africa branded : "By Africans, For Africa!" YALDA is a non-profit international organization that was established by upper level and graduate Harvard University students in order to create a resourceful networking database for those with a strong interest in Africa. The network is centered around YALDA branches, primarily at African universities, and serves to increase the capacity of youth in Africa for developing positive leadership skills and to espouse an honest work ethic. YALDA US works on researching opportunities in Africa, fundraising activities, working with branches, maintaining relationship with UN and compliance with
regulations as a 501 (c),(3).

YALDA US has a vacancy for the position of Social Media Strategy and Implementation Volunteer reporting directly to the YALDA US President and team.
We have prepared our own Social Media strategy and ideas for campaigns that need to be vetted by someone more experienced. We have done a lot of work and research into looking at which pages that are visited by African youth get the most post engagement on social media/facebook.
