Esperanto-USA’s National Talent Bank
What is the Talent Bank? The Esperanto-USA National Talent Bank (voluntularo) is a list of individuals willing to volunteer time and possibly specific skills when needed. It is also a place to list open positions within the Esperanto-USA organization, including committees which are open to additional members.
Who can volunteer? Volunteers should be members of Esperanto-USA. No specific skills are required to volunteer, only a willingness to help. Esperanto proficiency is not required of all volunteers. So what are you waiting for? Lend a helping hand today!
How do I volunteer? Send us a brief message with your name, your preferred means of contact (email, phone, Skype, etc.), a list of any specific skills, any preferred type of work, level of Esperanto, and a rough idea of your availability (X hours per week). If you don’t have a specific position or task in mind, we may contacted you when there’s an opening that matches your listed availability, skills, and/or preferences.
What type of skills should I list? If you think it might be useful, go ahead and list it! Here are some examples: graphic design, image editing, bookkeeping, typing (or retyping), proofreading, translation, … again, these are just a few examples. By far, the most important thing you can give is time!
Purpose of the Talent Bank: To facilitate and encourage participation through volunteerism within Esperanto-USA and the Esperanto community, driven by the idea that active participants are more likely to remain active. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to use and improve their Esperanto skills, make new friends and contacts, and strengthen the Esperanto community in the US.
Open positions: The following is a list of currently open officer or committee member positions. If you would like to be considered for a position or if you would like to list an open position, please contact us.
