Below is important information on volunteering and what you can gain here. Please read it and links below completely:
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!
You’ll learn more about it here. That web page explains our hours, activities, what you can learn with us and more. It will probably answer most of your questions.
You may be interested in comments from our volunteers.
The info session is usually Tuesday at 3:00 pm. Is that good? In any case, when would you like to meet with us? Please email or call us at 1-212-280-0333.
If you are not in New York,
the info session can be by phone, or our Skype is: greatchange
Limits and requirements for some volunteer activities
If you’re mostly interested in accounting, let’s talk before you come in to make sure there’s an opening for you here. We don’t usually offer accounting experience except to those with a CPA or at least a year of full-time, paid experience with QuickBooks. Info on how you can call our president is below.
There may also be significant limits to your participation in programming,
graphic design*, writing*, art*, video*, photography*, interior design*,
carpentry, or if your English is limited.
This web page is important to read now, if you need to do community service.
If any of this applies to you, we strongly recommend that you please speak in advance with Bill Blackman.
Together, we can decide by phone if there's a match with your interests. If not, we'll try to help you find volunteering elsewhere. This may save you a visit to our office. You can call and ask for Bill at 1-212-280-0333.
If you want to work remotely
If you'd like us to give official acknowledgement for remote volunteering, we'll need to know what you're doing with each chunk of hours you'll track. This is on our timesheets you'd use at home and show us periodically. Of course the work has to match the hours reported. That's what our due diligence to "certify" hours requires.
If you live reasonably nearby, we do suggest you consider fairly substantial hours in the office.
If you haven't done so yet, you can fill out our on-line application now.
Also appreciated: If you haven't sent your resume already, it is helpful to email it* to this email. It is also helpful for us to know what USA phone number or Skype ID (good from anywhere) that you prefer we use to contact you.
*When you email any docs, please send your docs in the email itself or as MS Word 2003 for PCs compatible (.doc, not .docx).
