Open Volunteer Positions

  • Website Design

    Short-term Volunteers (1-3 weeks)

    Purpose: We're looking to give our website a face-lift! We are aware that we need more time or resources if we were to do a major redesign of our website, and we are also pretty happy with the basic structure so we are looking to update graphics/layouts or make minor changes in this project only at this time. A few "additions" of new content will included however. We've moved towards more fun colors and flat graphic design on social media, and we love it. We're looking for a volunteer to help update our main website pages for consistency with social media and to give our website a fresh look. You will have access to a graphic designer who can create designs based on your instructions, but we would like to ask you to help with the actual page editing. No coding is needed, but we work with a little-known platform called Quick Silk, so a willingness to learn their (drag & drop) page design system is necessary. In this process, adding an embedded donation form to our site and giving us recommendations for a blog clean-up process (that we'll implement) will be asked.


    We have branding guidelines, a graphic designer and a clear picture of what needs to happen. We are asking the volunteer to implement the changes for us (except for blog clean-up) on the website so the project will be completed with the volunteer. We worked with a SEO taproot volunteer previously so guideless to increase SEO in this facelift will be available. 


    • Basic design understanding is needed to either communicate with a graphic designer or directly produce visual assets in Canva.
    • Experience with website design or user interface design.
    • Experience, or willingness, to learn to edit on the Quicksilk (drag & drop) platform.

    You will be asked to provide examples of your work during the application process.

  • Campaign Messaging/Copy Writing

    Short-term Volunteers (1-3 weeks)

    Purpose: This September our organization will be celebrating our 25th anniversary! Our fundraising campaign needs YOU to help us with creating the message for our campaign which will consist of a series of emails, social media posts, and a landing page. We've got a few fun ideas already developed and we're looking for someone to help us workshop these ideas until finalized and produce the words we need to inform the rest of our team (graphic design, website design) to spring into action and publish! 


    We have graphic design support and expertise in using our all the tools for social media, newsletter blasts and website design - what we need is a finalized concept of the campaign and the WORDS to make it come alive. We're looking a pretty fast turnaround and the team will be hands on during the whole project to get it done!


    • Basic design understanding is needed to either communicate with a graphic designer or directly produce visual assets in Canva.
    • Experience with marketing strategy, fundraising campaign messaging and/or communications.

    You will be asked to provide examples of your work during the application process.
