ASI UPBEAT Volunteer
Art Sphere Inc
Have an interest in research, curriculum writing, nature preservation, and want to help kids learn about environmental issues? We have an exciting new online volunteer opportunity available called the "ASI UPBEAT Program" we would like to share with you!
We are reaching out to individuals and groups of volunteers high school age and older to help our staff research how factors such as climate change, environmental toxins, land use and waste disposal affect urban environments and write curricula to explore topics related to issues such as green building, recycling, watershed pollution, air and carbon emissions, protecting natural resources and urban agriculture.
Instructions are videotaped so that volunteers can access the directions at their own schedule if they miss our Zoom Live or Google meetings, to allow for those who have a job or are absent to answer questions or review their projects.
A spreadsheet, examples, search sites and templates made for each volunteer on the Google drive tracks volunteer progress. Web designers show volunteers how their research will be utilized on the website. Pick a topic you would like to research and promote environmental preservation through our free arts programs on our educational website for children!
Please contact email@example.com to participate and specify a volunteer position as "ASI Passport Volunteer" so we can share files with you as a "one day volunteer" with paperwork requiring only our release form.
