Forager Blog Coordinator Volunteer

Background information/context

If you are a social and outgoing person that likes to keep up the latest news and events, join our blogging team. The blogging team is Forager Foundation’s way to share current events in cultural heritage with our followers and to drive people to our website to learn more about what we do. Our volunteers support the work of the publications director by helping out with the day-to-day of Forager’s blogging, for example, contributor outreach, content development, and promotion.

Opportunities are available from Monday to Friday only, at our Vancouver office. There are no weekend volunteering opportunities. Volunteers usually donate four to eight hours per week, Monday to Friday, normally starting between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and then finishing between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. We try to place volunteers according to their preferences.
