Words Alive


Looking for an engaging volunteer opportunity where you can help tell Words Alive’s stories to thousands of people around the world? Join the Social Media Squad at Words Alive! Volunteers support all aspects of Words Alive’s social media strategy and execution on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok, and LinkedIn.

  • Copywriters. Copywriters transform prompts into compelling and engaging posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and LinkedIn. New prompts are added weekly. Copywriters choose the how many and which prompts they’d like to write each week. It takes between 15-30 minutes to write a single day’s prompts (with slight variations for each social media channel).

  • Graphic Designers & Video Editors. Graphics and video volunteers transform prompts into graphics and videos to accompany posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and LinkedIn - as well as to put on Words Alive’s website. They also provide support for Words Alive campaigns and events. New prompts are added regularly. Graphics and video projects take from 20 minutes to 3-4 hours, depending on the complexity. Designers and editors choose their own projects from the list.

  • Schedulers. Schedulers combine the content written by copywriters with graphics/videos from the designers/editors and add them to an online scheduling platform. Schedulers are assigned to a specific day of the week. It takes 15-20 minutes to schedule posts for a single day.

  • Analysts. Analysts keep track of how many times specific posts on social media are viewed. They provide important feedback to help writers, designers, and editors create engaging content. Analysts are assigned to a specific platform (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and each week capture the data from that week’s posts. It takes 15-20 minutes each week to track the data.

  • Platform Support. Do you love making content for TikTok? Pinterest? Instagram Stories? Other platforms? Let’s talk!
