Volunteer Opportunities

6 November 2018

STC New England invites you to contribute to the success of the chapter by volunteering for one of our open roles. Experienced volunteers are preferred, but mentors are available for most roles to teach the required skills. Most positions can be filled remotely.

Volunteering adds valuable experience to your résumé and expands your career network. Interested in becoming a team lead or moving into management at work? Volunteering for a nonprofit organization such as ours is an excellent way to gain experience in tasks that don't always fall to a technical writer, in a safe and supportive environment.

Contact president@stcnewengland.org to volunteer or if you have questions.
