Great Volunteer Opportunity, Awesome Organization
Palm Oil Action Leader (Volunteer) (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 7, 2015
This is a volunteer position I aquired by applying for and attending a specialized activist training for Rainforest Action Network. I was invited to apply as I had already done activist work with RAN in the past. The training was lovely and extremely valuable. The position requires anywhere from 1-10 hours a week of volunteer time, organizing volunteers to create campaign action events targeted at major brands with the purpose of garnering responsible palm oil commitments from them. Lots of support from managment, bi-weekly support calls, freedom to create our own events. Great opportunity to build experience in the field of organizing.
Meeting lots of great people, freedom, creativity
Big gaps between events
