Housing Opportunities Project for Excellence, Inc. (HOPE, Inc.) is recruiting volunteers for a civil rights investigation (testing) project in Miami-Dade and Broward.

Testing is a controlled process for observing and reporting housing discrimination by volunteer investigators (testers) who pose as housing seekers.

Applicants must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Never have been convicted of a misdemeanor involving truth, veracity or honesty or of any felony
  • Have good observation and writing skills
  • Be able to donate approximately 4 to 6 hours for each test
  • Be punctual and have access to reliable transportation
  • Participate in an 8-hour training session which consists of a 4-hour class and a practice test lasting approximately 4 to 6 hours

Each test (practice or otherwise) is scheduled for a time that is convenient to the applicant or tester; but once an applicant or tester has made a commitment to a particular test schedule, the test must be completed.

Testers receive $40 - $70 for each completed test.
