Job One for Humanity is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, which is very rare these days. All volunteers work online and remotely unless they happen to live in the San Francisco, Bay Area.
Because we do not micro-manage our volunteers, by nature, our volunteers are independent, self-organizing individuals who have a passion for fixing the climate and global heating emergency before it is too late.
With senior team member guidance, our volunteers self-organize and coordinate to handle our social media, marketing, research, events, and even accounting. Our volunteers do most of our blog postings as they have done for years. All our volunteers work in teams with some of today's brightest, most passionate climate educators.
If you think of our organization as a media platform (like Facebook) where passionate climate activists meet electronically to collaborate and coordinate and then independently act on self-chosen, self-organized projects, you would have a good idea of how we get everything done with only volunteers.
It is considered a privilege to serve humanity's collective well-being and survival at Job One for Humanity. Being selected and joining our all-volunteer team is an honor. We attract the best, brightest, and most dedicated individuals who have either done well in their lives or currently otherwise have the free time to volunteer.
Below are some of the opportunities for you to play a vital role in protecting the future of humanity from climate change and global heating. You can work entirely online or in your local area. If you are local to the San Francisco bay area, you can join us occasionally at our office.
We do have a realistic plan for a safe and sustainable future that will work. We need your volunteering time and expertise to get than plan done.
