The Advocates for Human Rights is seeking volunteers to keep track of upcoming deadlines for civil society to engage with international human rights bodies. Each volunteer will be assigned to keep track of 1-3 human rights bodies by visiting their websites on a weekly basis, seeking out relevant deadline information on those websites, completing a brief form to record any new deadlines or changes to old deadlines, and submitting the form via email. After brief initial training, volunteers will need between 5 minutes and 1 hour per week to complete the assignment, depending on whether the assigned websites have any new or changed deadlines. Volunteers may conduct the training and the weekly assignments remotely.
For an example of how The Advocates shares these deadlines with civil society organizations around the world, visit http://www.theadvocatesforhumanrights.org/deadlines. This would be a great opportunity for students or others with basic online research skills who would like to contribute to an international nonprofit's work from home.
