Super volunteers are core leaders of SURJ who volunteer their time to help build our national movement-building capacity. If you're interested, fill out the form below and we'll be in touch with you soon with more information and next steps.
Digital Communications Team
This work includes how to develop a strategic digital campaign - using email, social media, and text messages - that link to deeper action and fundraising opportunities. Requires being available with potentially short notice to develop and implement a digital communications campaign.
You're a good fit if you: Have a strong attention to detail, are good at formatting both written text and visual layout, are motivated to respond quickly to real-time events and actions, are open to incorporating feedback, and think strategically about how each layer of the campaign deepens supporters’ involvement, action, and giving to racial justice work.
NationBuilder Database Team
This work includes building and implementing internal systems for data management, training volunteers and chapters in using the database, and responding to questions and requests for assistance along the way.
You're a good fit if you: Have a strong attention to detail, think linearly/mathematically, have excellent organizational skills, and love building systems on a computer interface. Volunteers managing the database will often have to adapt to inputting different kinds of data as well as think creatively to solve the challenges brought on by different campaigns. Some members of the team must also have personal communication skills and be able to train others who may not be as database-savvy on how to use NationBuilder effectively.
Web Design Team
This work includes proactive planning of layout and content and responding to timely updating requests.
You're a good fit if you: Are detail-oriented (this includes formatting pages consistently throughout the site), thoughtful about use of text and visual design, and are confident in learning and using the website platform. A basic knowledge of HTML coding is often necessary when creating pages in NationBuilder.
Video Editing Volunteers
This work includes layout, viewing and cutting content, incorporating text/music/links, incorporating feedback, and creating the final product.
You're a good fit if you: Are thoughtful about visual and voice details, strategic about demonstrating impact and motivating others to act, are able to keep things clear and concise, are open to incorporating feedback, and are able to learn video editing technology.
Fundraising Phone Call Volunteers
This work includes asking people to become members and/or thanking them for their donations.
You're a great fit if you: Love to talk with new people, communicate over the phone, share the exciting work of SURJ, and make asks.
