Remote volunteer, Clinic to End Tech Abuse

Are you looking for a remote volunteer opportunity?


Do you have tech skills and a desire to help domestic violence survivors?


Volunteer remotely with Cornell’s Clinic to End Tech Abuse!


Use your skills to help safeguard lives 

 

Cornell Tech, part of Cornell University, offers the groundbreaking Clinic to End Tech Abuse (CETA). We help domestic violence survivors end technology-related abuse -- and we’re looking for new remote volunteers.

 

Our clinic partners with the New York City Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence (ENDGBV) to help survivors detect and prevent technology-related abuse such as cyberstalking and spyware. We also do research to create a better understanding of tech abuse.

 

As a volunteer, you will:


  • Join a friendly, supportive team and be a part of exciting work at Cornell Tech. 
  • Receive remote training on domestic violence, technology-related abuse, and client interaction skills.
  • Help domestic violence survivors directly.
  • Contribute to cutting-edge research.

 

Please note: This volunteer role is unpaid.


Time commitment: 


As a volunteer, you will need to complete an interview process and approximately 10 hours of remote training via Zoom. You will also have a “shadowing” period when you will listen in as more experience volunteers help clients.

 

After you complete your training, we would expect you to be available for at least 8 hours per month to meet remotely with domestic violence survivors and attend clinic meetings. 

 

Qualifications:


We encourage applications from two types of volunteers: (1) those with strong computer science qualifications, and (2) those who do not have a computer science background but are comfortable navigating privacy settings and have other relevant skills.


All applicants should have:


  • An understanding of basic computer security or online privacy concepts, or a willingness to learn.   
  • The ability to explain technical concepts to people with little technical knowledge clearly, simply, and respectfully.
  • Empathy, strong listening skills, and strong organizational skills.
  • A commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, human rights, and being a team player.
  • Fluency in a language other than English is a plus, although not required. 

 

We work with survivors in New York City, but you can be based anywhere.


Please submit your CV and a cover letter explaining your interest in volunteering by August 7 to Sarah St.Vincent, CETA Director, at stvincent [at] cornell [dot] edu


Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so please apply soon. Please contact us if you are an individual with a disability who requires assistance applying for this role.
