Volunteer

We are currently an all-volunteer organization, and have many volunteer needs. Could you fill one (or part of one) of the following roles?
  • Missions conference representatives -- Does your church hold a missions conference? Would you be willing to approach the missions committee about representing RBI there? We can provide everything you need -- display materials, photos, interesting assistive devices, and handouts.
  • Social media coordinator -- Help us develop a social media strategy and workflow to be effective on Facebook, Instagram, and Linked In (or wherever else we ought to be). Then take our stories and images, repurpose them for the various audiences, and follow-up as we receive inquiries and responses.
  • Data entry and researcher (schools for the blind) -- A current, worldwide, comprehensive list of schools for the blind is a really helpful resource we can provide to the blind and those who work with them. Help us convert a 66-page MS Word document of addresses into a tab-delimited format that we can import into our database. You don't need to know anything about databases -- just patiently do lots of find-and-replace and formatting. Then help us clean up and augment the list with internet checking and by responding to corrections.
  • Donor relations coordinator -- As a non-profit, we are dependent on the gifts of others, and want to be good stewards. Can you help print and mail end-of-year receipts, and periodically thank donors?
  • Research and data entry person (Bible storying) -- Help us discover Bible stories, testimonies, and worship songs in many of the world's languages that are already available on the web, then add them to our database, so that workers can quickly discover them, create playlists, and load them onto audio players.
  • Language consultant -- If you are conversant in a language other than English, and you'd be willing to let us call on you for translation help, contact follow-up, and content review in that language, let us know.
  • Electronic/mechanical/CAD designer -- We are looking for technical help to develop an ultra-low-cost, solar powered mp3 player for widespread distribution. If you have a passion for design optimization, we'd love to talk with you.
  • CPA -- To maintain our ECFA accreditation, we need to have an annual "financial compilation", which is a sizable expense for a small non-profit. Could you help with this?
