This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


PetsEmpower.org is a nonprofit umbrella organization increasing access to short-term fostering for domestic violence survivors in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We give courageous domestic violence survivors a positive alternative to pet relinquishment or remaining in abusive situations with their pet due to a lack of options to place their pet. We allow owners to find safety for themselves and their pets through short-term pet fostering and later reunite, generating positive health outcomes.

We are looking for 1-10 content writers to update our blog on a weekly basis with relevant, timely material. Content can be provided if requested based on current events. We hope to have several volunteers working to submit one blog post a week which we can then stagger out to our online blog at PetsEmpower.org and our social media channels. If you have a passion for the mission, would like to gain volunteer experience with a remote position, and be part of a startup nonprofit with a S.M.A.R.T. growth plan, this is the position for you.

You will be reporting to the Marketing Manager and can make the position as challenging or simple as you would like. We ask for only one hour of your week to write drafts and proofread your work, and if you have experience with WordPress, posting the content as well. You will NOT be responsible for social media posting, website edits, or other marketing positions.
