Part time (10-30 hrs/wk)

We are a nonprofit focused on helping the millions in need of assistance during this COVID-19 pandemic. What will you tell your family, friends, children, grandchildren when they ask you," What did you do during the Covid-19 pandemic?"

We have a worthy mission and a team of 10 people and an software platform (conceived by am MIT alum) that matches people in need with people who can help. We need your help!

We are looking for volunteers:

1.    FUND RAISING VOLUNTEER. We have launched a drive on GoFundMe and are also reaching out to various people and organizations to donate as we help people during this Corona pandemic. If you have some experience managing such an effort and doing some of the outreach, we would love to have you on our team!

2.    WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FRONT-END DEVELOPER. Responsibilities will include developing the UX/UI Designs into html and css using react.js. This is a perfect opportunity for an ambitious front-end developer looking to get hands-on opportunity working on a real-life project, currently relevant cause that will touch the life of tens of thousands of people in a few months. The software tool that matches people in need with people who can help was designed by a group of engineers (!). Help!

3.    We need GRAPHIC DESIGNERS who can design collateral for our social media campaigns to help us target partners, volunteers (who will provide services to people in need) as well as people in need. We have a seasoned social media marketing leader. We need a good graphic designer.

4.    We need one or more PR VOLUNTEER to reach out to media outlets - tv stations, podcasts, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, bloggers, etc. This will augment the social media campaign we will be running in parallel.

We seek highly motivated individuals, irrespective of age, education or gender, who will wade in and help us to help as many Americans as we can during this pandemic.

THIS IS AN UNPAID VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY. You will be listed on the team page (http://www.immigrantvolunteers.org/our-team/) of our website and can obviously list this experience on your resume. We would be happy to be a reference if that would help.

You must have working knowledge of MS Office to compile the lists. You must obviously be proficient in fundraising (or have a great persuasive ability by email or on the phone) UI/UX design (even if you have just taken courses, 'have an eye for UI'), graphics software (for that job) and have a persuasive phone presence (for PR job).

We are a confederacy of organizations that have banded together. All of us are virtual.

MY MOTIVATION? I have been through 2 bad recessions, one as a fresh graduate. Finding paid jobs when businesses are dying in the millions, and over 50 million are unemployed, underemployed or frustratedly given up looking for work, is a tough task. Finding meaningful work that helps people (and yourself) make sense of current events and how to come out of it isn’t done by a majority of the population, including students.

Students and fresh graduates are in danger of long-term exclusion from the job market — missing out on training and resume-building experience could thwart or delay entire careers. I am willing to give you an opportunity and invest some of my time to help you get meaningful experience that could help your career. And, this is a very worthy cause.

For the qualified but unemployed: This job market is tough. Showing that you have volunteer experience is very valuable. Additionally, you can show continuity, practice your current skills, learn new skills and expand your network (we work with senior people across the country).

For the retired: You have valuable skills and a ton of experience we can benefit from. Volunteering can be very gratifying (it is, for me). Moreover, working for a cause for a few hours a day beats most alternatives. We value your experience and leverage it to make a positive impact on people's lives.
