Join the CAPS Marketing Team!

Volunteers Wanted

Are you a UCSC student with an eye for design and an interest in helping to promote CAPS services? Then we want YOU to be a part of the CAPS Marketing Team!

We are currently seeking 2-3 students to serve on our Flyer Design Team. This team focuses on designing and creating eye-catching flyers for CAPS groups, workshops, and events. You will have the opportunity to use your creative talents to promote CAPS services and fight mental-health stigma!

Flyer Design Team members will be asked to create flyers with an emphasis on work early in each quarter, when we are initially planning and coordinating our programs. We will also likely have small assignments that come up from time time throughout the quarter. Expect a workload of approximately 5-10 flyers per person, per quarter. Your work will be seen around campus at res halls, bus stops, bulletin boards, resource centers, and other locations.

For more information or to submit an application, email Maya Borgueta at Additional marketing team positions will be available later in the academic year, so if design is not your thing, definitely stay tuned!


Applications for the Flyer Design Team will be accepted on a rolling basis and our first review will take place on November 8. To apply, please answer the following questions and submit a work sample as described below. You may submit the application as a Google or Word doc and email it to; work samples may be submitted in a separate attachment if necessary. Please title your application “Marketing App [Last Name]” (and “Work Sample [Last Name]” if applicable). Be sure to proofread your application and work sample carefully for typos and errors as your attention to detail will be important in this position.
