We are seeking curious individuals to volunteer with Clio, a nonprofit website and mobile app that connects the public to historical and cultural sites. In Clio's collaborative digital platform, volunteers will research, write, and edit Clio entries on historic sites, museums, monuments, markers, and past events. Volunteers will use narrative text, as well as images, videos, primary and secondary sources, and links to related content to tell rich, compelling, and concise stories about the past. Volunteers can also create digital walking tours and heritage trails, which provide step-by-step directions and convey connections between historic sites. With our growing database of 30,000 entries and 250 tours from across the United States, volunteers will enhance our ability to connect the public with historical and cultural sites and provide them with well-written, thoroughly-researched content.
Volunteering opportunities can be tailored to individuals' schedules, interests, and skills. Volunteers should demonstrate an interest in history, an independent work ethic, the ability to research and write in a professional manner, and basic computer skills. Volunteers will work with Clio AmeriCorps members, who will help them determine the scope of their service and review their work before publication.
Please reach out to us with your availability and questions! We are looking forward to hearing from you and working together to share history with the public.
