Art Barn School of Art, a Valparaiso nonprofit art institution, worked with AmeriCorps to recruit Kayla Green as their new marketing member.
Purdue Northwest University undergraduate Kayla Green provides Art Barn with her experience in journalism, public relations and both external and internal communication facilitation. As one of East Chicago’s own, she brings a bustling twist of Art Barn’s rustic atmosphere. During her pursuit of a bachelors in Communication, she has worked with many nonprofit organizations in the region such as South Shore Clean Cities and the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce.
"We have been working with AmeriCorps since 2019 during which time their talented members have helped us significantly build capacity through programming and marketing efforts,” said Amy Davis Navardauskas, executive director.
This new member position was established to help Art Barn generate content and visual materials that build the their brand, increase visibility within the broader community, assess needs and develop ways to best meet their highest priorities.
“We are pleased to have Kayla as part of our team. She has broad experience in writing, content development and analytics and we look forward to working with her to support program growth and expand our community reach," said Navardauskas.
