ORGANIZATION: OLD BALDY CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE OF PHILADELPHIA

We are seeking experienced and enterprising volunteers to create a documented set of instructions to perform routine processes and procedures for a nonprofit historical society.

Volunteers will communicate through telephone and/or email with the project coordinator and department liaisons; gather information and cut it down to what our members need to best understand the individual task at hand; write actions out in the order in which they happen; create a template to enter the information.

Volunteers will write in a style that is easily understood using simple words to communicate as briefly as possible.

We will work with your schedule.

Interest in Civil War history is not required.

Skills needed: computer, writing, organization, communication, dependability.

Our goal is to have processes so thorough that anyone could take over the task and be able to complete it. The set of instructions will help us evaluate what we are doing now as well as how to operate moving forward. We look to improve consistency, error reduction, and communication.

Gain experience as you help us. Opportunity to place this position on your resume or recognition opportunities. After evaluation, you may receive a letter of recommendation.
