The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Our small team at DIBS (Delivering Infinite Book Shelves) recently pushed out our first-ever blog, which we hope will become a popular and helpful educational resource about childhood education and literacy. To make this as sustainable as possible, we are looking for volunteer writers that have writing and blog experience and want to help us maintain the site, grow our followers, increase engagement and ultimately increase our donor and volunteer pool so that more students have the opportunity to take a book they love home every single school night.
For those interested (college students, retirees, previous teachers, parents, someone looking to do more with their skills and time) we will help you learn more about literacy and education, create thought-provoking blog posts, hone your writing skills, and give you a space to share your perspective on reading and educational issues.
