Meet Olivia Mayernik: TOCA Marketing Intern

By Cindy Code, Project EverGreen

Olivia MayernikProject EverGreen will proudly host another TOCA marketing intern during the summer of 2020. The intern program is a fantastic opportunity for an aspiring communicator to gain valuable, real-world experience. The program is provided by TOCA and generously funded by Den and Sandy Gardner and Dave Hansen. Project EverGreen is grateful and looks forward to making the most of the experience.

Project EverGreen is a national, non-profit organization, with a mission to bring people together to make a difference in how yards, parks and green spaces create a greener, healthier, cooler Earth. The organization’s mission, programs and outreach can transform neighborhoods and the lives of people living and working in those communities.

This year’s summer intern, Olivia Mayernik, will enjoy a diverse experience, by combining marketing, communication, social and volunteer skills that directly impact consumers in urban areas.

Mayernik hails from the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby, Ohio – not far from Project EverGreen’s offices in Mentor. She will be a senior at Ohio University in the fall, majoring in communication studies with a minor in marketing and a certificate in social media.

Like all college students, she spent the spring semester completing her studies online vs. on campus, and she’s anxious to put her finals and this semester behind, and spend the summer honing her skills in marketing and social media, and furthering her passion for volunteerism.

Mayernik will spend 10 weeks working with Project EverGreen, bolstering its online community project pages, writing news articles and blog posts, interviewing GreenCare and SnowCare for Troops volunteers, and helping manage Project EverGreen’s social media platforms.

“I’m ready to learn and help in any way possible, and apply my creative and strategic thinking abilities,” said Mayernik. “I am constantly looking for new opportunities to learn and grow my knowledge in the communications field.”

Project EverGreen’s major initiatives include GreenCare for Communities and GreenCare for Troops. Project EverGreen is also the sponsor of TOCA’s Environmental Communicator of the Year Award.
