Social Media Volunteers
We are looking for people to help us share our stories across our social media platforms. Working together with our Social Media Manager and Coordinator, this role would include the creation and regular posting and moderation of PARO’s social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, our Facebook Group, Listserv). We are especially interested in individuals who have, or want to develop, graphic design and social media skills.
Story Curation Volunteers
We are looking for people who want to document, curate, and share rural stories! We are especially interested in individuals who have—or want to develop—skills relating to interviewing, writing, editing, photography, videography, and podcasting.
PARO Story-Map Volunteers
We are looking for people who are skilled and passionate about Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and geospatial data. Alongside the PARO team, PARO story-map volunteers will aid in the development of a mapping platform using ArchGIS to integrate demographic information, geospatial data, and story details sourced from our archive into the map's interface.
