Job One for Humanity is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, which is very rare nowadays. All positions and projects are managed and executed by our many volunteers.
All Job One volunteers work online and remotely unless they live in the San Francisco Bay Area. All positions are part-time, and you pick when and as little or as much as you want to work on various volunteer actions. We also encourage all volunteers to recruit other volunteers they may know to help you and make the volunteer experience more enjoyable.
Because we do not micro-manage our volunteers, our volunteers are naturally independent, self-organizing individuals who are passionate about fixing the climate and global heating emergency before it is too late.
Our volunteers coordinate as needed with senior volunteer team members' guidance to handle our social media, marketing, research, events, and even accounting. Our volunteers also do most of our blog postings, as they have done for years.
All our volunteers work in teams with some of today's brightest and most passionate climate educators and activists.
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.

Our Current Volunteer Openings in Order of Priority
The following positions are listed in order of importance for our organization to continue thriving and speaking climate truth to power.
There is much to do to save the future, so please email us if you want to start immediately! If you do not see an administrative position below that you would like, be sure to see our volunteer projects page for additional fascinating volunteering projects now available.
All positions below are part-time and conducted online unless you are in the San Francisco Bay area and choose to come to our offices. Some senior-level positions that also will have secure access to our Internet tools, websites, member lists etc., will require us to do a full background check.
Please keep in mind that starting your local preparation and adaptation actions on the Job One for Humanity Plan B to protect and preserve yourself, your families, and your businesses is always your first action behind any other position you may choose. Starting Plan B is everyone's first action because this strategy is similar to what occurs on an airplane if there's an emergency underway.
In an airline emergency, you are always instructed to put your oxygen mask on first before trying to help your children or anyone else. That way, you will be able to preserve yourself and your abilities to better manage the crisis and help others. We are in a climate change extinction emergency.

Never forget why you are so important as a volunteer
Our role as a non-profit educational climate think tank is to provide unpoliticized, uncensored, and accurate climate research information and analysis. We are not information marketing people, in-the-street climate protestors, activists, or for profit business managers. We are climate researchers, analysts, and educators only.
Our limited climate research and analysis role means that ALL website visitors, members, and volunteers must share the climate information and analysis they discover on our website for us! If they do not, our uncensored climate information will not reach enough people to make a difference before it is too late.
Without the hundreds of thousands of our annual visitors taking up their survival-critical role in distributing our climate information and analysis, there is little hope Humanity can avoid soon-arriving, near-total extinction climate catastrophes. So please do your part!
Actively and aggressively share and spread the climate information and analysis found oil our website and, where appropriate, become climate activists helping us to create honest climate solutions.
