The Worldview Project is a San Diego based non-profit whose mission is to promote cross-cultural awareness, understanding, and appreciation through web-based resources, programs, publications, social networking and local events.
The Worldview Project is seeking volunteers or interns who have had professional journalism experience or upper division college-level journalism coursework. Responsibilities include: attending and researching events, interviewing people and writing articles suitable in tone and content for publication for our online magazine, The San Diego Participant Observer. A lively writing style that is expository and descriptive is editorially favored over subjective and personal approaches. Applicants should understand that depending on circumstance, subject matter and skills, the editorial process can occasionally be arduous and painstaking including the possibility of entire rewrites or pulling the plug on an article if it lacks relevance to our mission. Applicants should also understand that the publication process is highly collaborative. We are seeking writers who have a thirst for getting to the bottom of things and strive for excellence. Proofreading skills and familiarity with content management systems are helpful, but not required. Reliable transportation is very helpful.
As we are based in San Diego, California, even though we are all working remotely we have a preference for volunteers who are living here or who have a good familiarity with San Diego.
Please note that if your experience writing is with blogging or social media posting, then you may be asked to split your volunteer work between article writing and content development for one or more of our websites.
Most of our work happens during normal business hours, with only occasional weekend or evening hours requested. Our minimum commitment for a volunteer is 120 hours within a 6 months period and for interns, 120 hours within a 3 months timeframe.
Please visit our website at www.thewvp.org and our online magazine at www.parobs.org for more information about our organization and the work we do!
*** Please do not call or walk-in unannounced at our office to inquire or apply for this opportunity. We'd prefer you apply through this listing or email us at: email@example.com *** When you write to us, we'd appreciate it if you tell us a little bit about your skills, experiences, interests, and anything else you might want to share, so that we may respond to your application more fully. If you do not hear back from us in one business week's time, then you may call our office at (858) 964-0709, but please contact us first by email.

The need for a greater understanding of the world's cultures is rapidly increasing as the world's social, political and economic systems become increasingly inter-dependent. American society itself is rapidly becoming more diverse and improved relations between various cultural groups and between individuals from different cultures largely depends on a better understanding of cultural differences. A greater understanding of cultures is important to all levels of human interaction, from the level of international politics and commerce to the social interactions found within cities, neighborhoods, workplaces and classrooms. In addition to improving social relations across cultural boundaries, an increased knowledge of other cultures enriches aesthetic and intellectual experience. All of the world's societies must contend with difficult social, environmental and technological problems and improved understanding of other cultures and better interactions between cultures and countries will facilitate the sharing of information and techniques that may be of great practical merit. The Worldview Project seeks to promote a better understanding of, tolerance for and appreciation of the world's cultural groups and the diverse range of cultures and sub-cultural groups that live within the United States The Worldview Project is organized as public benefit nonprofit corporation dedicated to the following general and specific purposes: * The promotion of greater appreciation, tolerance, knowledge and understanding for and between world cultures, sub-cultural and ethnic groups through the publication and distribution of educational materials. * The provision of resources and services to educators and students who wish to learn about other cultures. * The facilitation and enabling of communication between American students and students from other cultures through Worldwide Web communications. * The promotion and provision of resources for the study of cultures (Anthropology) by American primary and secondary school students as well as the general public. * The encouragement, support and publishing of writers who write about their own cultures and illustrators who employ culturally specific styles and motifs in their artwork. * Publishing support for anthropologists who want to write for a younger school readership.
