What are the volunteer positions currently needed within the Resilience Systems?

We currently have (and have had in the past) many different volunteers working simultaneously on a wide variety of projects.  Sometimes our volunteers have preferences with regard to the types of work and responsibilities they will have while assisting us.  Whenever possible, we always want to accommodate the wishes of our volunteers so they will feel comfortable working with us.

We are sharing some of our volunteer needs (below).  Any volunteer is welcome to assist with any level of task in which they feel comfortable, and are welcome to change or upgrade tasks whenever they are ready.  We provide typed sets of instructions (by email) for training purposes, and occasionally conduct telephone conferences to discuss details.  We also conduct video conferences when helpful.

An entry level volunteer can begin by offering as little as 20 minutes of time per day, or they can tackle as much work (and work as much time) as they wish.

We are needing volunteers for the following positions:

Data Stewards (will post material we provide them)

Content Manager / Crowdsourcer (will post relevant material they locate themselves)

Content Manager / Researchers (will post relevant material they locate themselves, and will also locate and post links to certain studies and/or research papers being referenced within the material)

Group Managers – Coordinator / Knowledge Manager  for a specific group(s).  This position coordinates with the members of a group within the website, and manages the content being posted within the group.  This position works closely with the equivalent manager on the ground (in a particular field of work), or can be responsible for both (website group members / content, and coordinating work on the ground).

Resilience System Manager – Coordinator / Knowledge Manager for a specific Resilience System(s).  This position coordinates with the members of a specific Resilience System website, and manages the content being posted within the site.  This position works closely with the equivalent manager on the ground (within the respective geographic location), or can be responsible for both (website members / content, and coordinating work on the ground).

Full Administrator – Assists with building out, testing, and maintaining Resilience System websites.  This position can also assist with any of the responsibilities mentioned above.
