SHIC runs on volunteer power. Over 100 volunteers have been the creators of the SHIC Program, the brains behind our website, and the voices that make up our outreach efforts. SHIC’s volunteers are a melting pot of different talents and backgrounds—working remotely from every corner of the globe to tackle the organization’s latest projects.
As a SHIC volunteer, you will have the opportunity to engage with a diverse set of tasks. Although we try to match each person with assignments that match their current skills, if you want to stretch yourself, you will be given the chance to take on new roles and responsibilities. You have the opportunity to become familiar with project management, copy writing and editing, web development, web marketing, outreach, communications, donor stewardship, and more! We currently have volunteers contributing to SHIC remotely from all over the world, so wherever you are based we encourage you to get involved.
If you’d like to volunteer, we ask that you commit at least three hours each week over a period of at least six months (you can break this up if you need to for holidays or busy periods at work or school).
For a more intensive experience, we also welcome applications to become a SHIC intern. In an intern position, you will have about 15 hours of work per week for a minimum of six weeks. This experience is a great way to get straight to the heart of the organization and also beef up your resume.
Drop a line to our Manager of Community, Catherine. Send an email, with a description about yourself and your skills to firstname.lastname@example.org, plus any questions or comments you may have.
We’ll get back to you as soon as we can! We really appreciate your time, and we're always excited to have new people on board.
