The Population Project is a non-profit organization striving to compile a list of every human’s full name and date of birth. Strangely enough, in a time when information has never been so plentiful, we don’t know the name of the 7+ billion people with whom we share this planet.

In a generation or two, most of us will be forgotten. The Population Project will keep a log of who lived when. It will be a resource for historians and genealogists alike.

If you think everybody deserves to be remembered, please consider helping us in our titanic enterprise. We need volunteers everywhere to source large lists of humans, some of which can be found in the most unusual places. You'll be given the tools and the training to perform your mission.

Please be aware that this is a non-paying job as we are functioning on a limited budget.

You can apply be email at volunteers@thepopulationproject.org
