Typists/transcriptionists Needed!

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

The Creative Expressions Program is designed to help disadvantaged men and women get their art and literary works published.


The Foundation’s Creative Expressions program needs typists to transcribe hand written and typedtext to editable text.

We will provide verification of hours completed for court, public service, School, etc. for this volunteer opportunity upon request.



This volunteer opportunity involves transcribing a fictional urban book, written by a first time inexperienced incarcerated author, which may contain explicit adult content, street slang, racial slurs, realistic portrayals of gang and drug street life, and poor use of grammar - much or all of which may be offensive to some volunteers. Please do not accept this opportunity unless you feel it is something you can overlook.


You will receive a portion (assignment) of the "copy written" book as a .pdf file, so you will need Adobe PDF Reader software (https://get.adobe.com/reader/?promoid=KSNEY) to open it.

The finished assignment has to be in the .doc format. You will need a text editor like Microsoft Works to complete you assignment(s).

The best way to do this project is to open the .pdf file and your text editor one over the other so you can see doth at the same time (unless you have more than one monitor).

This is a great way for you to make good on community service requirements.


If you accept this volunteer opportunity and later decide not to follow through with it for any reason, please refrain from posting a review restating what was already explained in this (the above) post. We have been upfront and clear about what this project entails. Therefore, such reviews do not assist potential future volunteers in deciding whether or not to accept this opportunity.

Thank you!
