JerseySTEM is an all volunteers grassroots non-profit agency dedicated to bridging the Innovation Gap, the Opportunity Gap and the Gender Gap in STEM education. We provide free of charge after-school, project-based, hands-on, team structures programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to underserved students in New Jersey. Classes include: Robotics, Coding, Engineering, Life Sciences, etc. and are focused on kids grade 5-8. The programs last 10 weeks and are taught predominantly by volunteer college students that we recruit, train, transport and mentor as they donate 2 hours/week to the program.
Responsible for being a valued resource to the organization on updating/populating our Wix managed website.
Essential Functions of the Volunteer Position
-Populate/update the organization’s website as necessary
-Make yourself available should the organization have questions regarding our website and the Wix platform
Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities
-Must have own computer/device to be able to perform necessary tasks
-MOST of the work can be done remotely, but must be available for conference calls when necessary and on occasion may be invited to attend JerseySTEM events or in-person meetings.
-This volunteer position assumes you have a working knowledge of the Wix platform, but does not require any advanced knowledge. Wix is easy to use and user friendly, we will provide training and answer any questions that arise.
Required Education and Experience
-Experience with the Wix platform would be a plus (not necessary)
-Experience creating/managing websites
Weekly Time Commitment Required
Depending on the workload that week and what must be done for the team/organization, it varies. The expectation would be that once you receive a request for something to be created/added to the website, you would go ahead and create a test version within one business day of your receipt of the initial request. After the test version was approved by the necessary parties, you would be expected to get it up and running on the actual JerseySTEM site ASAP (no more than one business day of receiving approval). This position can be done entirely remotely and the only additional commitment would be making yourself available for conference calls when applicable.
