Think you can write a better volunteer ad? Please do!
If you enjoy writing, come use your skills to help Crossing Party Lines find volunteers. We gather people of all political stripes together for civil, mind-opening conversations, but we can't do it alone. We need volunteers at all levels with a wide range of skills. And we need you to write postings that tell our story and match us with real people who want to help.
The work is flexible – write as many or as few listings as you want. The schedule is your own – we work in three time zones and collaborate virtually. We'll walk together through what we do and where we need help, and you'll put together the words that will get the job done.
- Interview a person who needs a volunteer to find out what they are needed for and tease out reasons a volunteer might want to help in that role
- Review the tips and information we have gathered on creating attractive and competitive opportunity ads
- Write something suitable for use on VolunteerMatch or GivePulse
- Roll in any feedback received
- Basic writing
- Good personal skills
- Creative bent
