Experienced website developers can apply their understanding of the organization’s goals and target audience to build a website incorporating relevant content and media to support their charitable initiatives. Graphic design professionals can create a range of marketing materials, which could include flyers, print advertisements, website content, social media posts, or logos. These materials will relate on specific needs but volunteers are invited to contribute ideas for effective campaigning. Experienced volunteers in videography or film can create promotional videos to support their campaign efforts. Volunteers with experience in photography document their activities and provide them with media. This could involve taking photos of the community members which the organization supports, or helping to record activities of a specific project. Other tasks might include creation of infographics, brochures, posters, animations and announcements. Volunteers should also be prepared to work in their events, beach clean-up, street actions and any other that may happen as it’s essential to get involved in the project’s mission.
The organizations that require this kind of support usually like to take advantage of the English skills of the international volunteer to communicate in English and to include English in their communication channels, so having a native English speaker is a huge plus.
As these organizations might not have the necessary resources available, volunteers need to bring their own laptops, design software and/or camera equipment in order to participate on this project. Volunteers should include all relevant qualifications and/or experience within your application.
