ROBOTICS FOR ALL

Image_201902241920

Overview
The Coronavirus Pandemic fundamentally changed Robotics for All's business model. Before the pandemic, all of our classes were taught in-person. Over the summer, we developed curriculum for and taught online classes. The virtual classes were a huge success, and Robotics for All experienced record breaking growth over the summer. This next year, we plan to continue expanding our online classes and introduce two new programs: Tutoring for All and Mentorship for All. Tutoring for All will be an on-demand tutoring service for underserved middle and high school students. Mentorship for All will be a mentorship program for underserved high school students navigating high school and the college application process. As Robotics for All continues to expand and diversify its portfolio, Robotics for All is seeking business development interns. Although unpaid, interns will gain valuable insight into how a growing startup nonprofit organization runs. Interns will choose between a wide variety of tasks to complete. We encourage you to apply. High school and college students are welcome, as well as college graduates.

Time Commitment

  • 3-10 hours/week
    • You may choose as many/as few tasks to complete. Inform us how many hours/week you want to put in and we will work with it.
  • Weekly/Bi-Weekly Calls
    • You will likely be working in a team of 2-5 other volunteers working on a particular task. Each group will have weekly calls. The number of weekly calls that you will have depends on how many groups you choose to join.
    • All other work can be done at flexible hours.

Tasks
  • As mentioned above, there will be a number of tasks from which you can choose. Many tasks involve working in a group of 2-5 other volunteers, but some are independent projects.
  • The following is a list of tasks that you will be able to choose from (this list may be updated):
    • Outreach to Schools, PTAs, Parents and Students.
      • ​Cold-Emailing
      • Direct Outreach
      • Social Media Advertisements
      • Other publicity avenues.
    • Creating and Improving Drag-and-Drop Websites
      • ​New websites will need to be created for our Mentorship for All and Tutoring for All Programs. These websites can either be created in a drag-and-drop website builder or with HTML/CSS.
      • We can always make improvements to this website (www.roboticsforall.net), if you have any ideas.
    • ​Organizing Virtual Events with Guest Speakers
      • ​Outreach to speakers
      • Creating flyers and other publicity materials
      • Publicizing on Facebook, Eventbrite, and other platforms.
    • Researching and writing grants.
      • While we currently have enough funding to sustain through at least the next year, more funding can always be beneficial.
      • This work will simply entail writing grants and can be done independently.
    • ​Translating Documents and Emails to Parents
      • ​Spanish translators are in high demand, but French and Mandarin Chinese translators are also needed.
    • Coordinating Online Classes
      • ​Communicate with parents, students, and volunteers to arrange class times.
      • Compile class rosters.
    • Reformatting Curriculum Files and Other Files
      • ​We want all of our files to have the same format.
      • We also need to correctly file and organize our files.
    • Creating Applications for New Tutoring for All and Mentors for our Tutoring for All and Mentorship for All Programs
      • These will be for both volunteers and tutors.
      • You will also work out other logistics for this.

​Benefits
  • This is a volunteer opportunity, so it is unpaid. However, you will earn community service hours for all work (the honor system applies when reporting hours).
  • Interning for Robotics for All will look good on any resume, whether applying for a future internship, job, or college.
  • Potential future leadership opportunities (Robotics for All board, etc.) may be offered.
  • Experience the satisfaction of improving your local community.
  • Earn a recommendation letter from one of Robotics for All's leadership members.

Requirements
  • In high school or have graduated from high school.
  • Consistent access to a computer and wifi at home.

    • Outreach
    • Cold Emailing
    • Building websites with HTML
    • Drag-and-drop based website builders such as Weebly
    • Writing grants or strong general analytical writing skills
    • Fluency in a second language
