As the new year begins, we must say farewell to some fantastic staff members at Venture Outdoors who are moving on to new positions with other local nonprofits. They’re both continuing to use their skills to help make our community healthy, happy, and vibrant.  

Courtney Schreiner has been a valued team member of Venture Outdoors, starting as an intern while a student at the University of Pittsburgh in 2018. She was then hired full time as the Program Coordinator, taking care of program logistics, registration, and customer service. Most people with any connection to Venture Outdoors has received an email or phone call from her at one point! Courtney also held a critical role in supporting the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour, working on raffle donations and logistics. Her next move brings her to the United Way as Volunteer Engagement Coordinator.  

Samone Riddle joined Venture Outdoors last year as the Communications and Media Manager. They will now serve as the Multimedia Coordinator at Bike Pittsburgh, a fantastic organization and valued partner of Venture Outdoors. With their data analysis, writing and design skills, Samone refreshed our electronic communications and messaging and increased our presence and followers across social media. While at Venture Outdoors, Samone also managed numerous interns who added to the organizations’ visuals and created compelling videos, and they were a valuable critical thinker and communicator amongst staff and volunteers. 

We wish them both the best of luck in their new positions and hope to continue to work with them on future projects. 

With these changes Venture Outdoors is restructuring. Keep an eye out for job position openings in the future. If you are interested with a position at Venture Outdoors visit our “Employment Opportunities” page.
