Do you want to be involved in creating positive social change around the world?
Does a fast-paced environment spark your interest?
Are you looking for a flexible volunteer role where you can develop your skills in the nonprofit and humanitarian sectors?
illuminAid is a small nonprofit in Chico; however, we work in the poorest countries around the globe like Haiti, Nepal, India, Mozambique, and Rwanda. We partner with other charities such as Save the Children to help transform the lives of underserved communities through innovative technology. Our mission is to help educate the world's poorest billion people with low-cost technology.
We essentially coach for the staff of the other charities, helping them to integrate video into their interventions about health, education, agriculture, and the environment, etc. These interventions, magnified with video technology, help accelerate the rate of positive social change for those who need it the most. In equipping NGOs with mobile projectors and the knowledge to create behavior change videos, we support these organizations (and illuminAid!) in their drive towards achieving the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
illuminAid seeks a volunteer to assist in several key duties critical to the success of the organization:
Marketing, including outreach and content creation
Newsletter creation and article writing
Collation and organization of Google Sheets containing several hundred data points for emails to non-governmental partners
Updating illuminAid marketing material
Maintenance of illuminAid internal wiki
Equipment organization and management
Creation and maintenance of audiovisual "how-to" guides for the equipment we take with us to developing countries
Assist in sourcing new equipment for upcoming projects
Organization and maintenance of the equipment database
And many other tasks that support our organization
Video creation and editing
Do some or all of these needs appeal to your interests and skillsets? Or maybe you’d like to learn how to do some of these to help illuminAid in its goals? We’ll teach you! The ideal candidate will have an interest in non-government organizations (NGOs) and the alleviation of extreme poverty, so just send us an email if you’re interested!
