In addition, you will be able to research and apply for grants. This position will help develop/build upon marketing and advertising knowledge, as well as writing and communications skills.  

Technology Specialist


Volunteer Houston has been growing rapidly over the past few years. As we grow, we need to become more technologically sophisticated.

Your role will be to assist in these projects based on your skill/knowledge. This position will allow you to develop and implement solutions in a real business environment, while having the freedom to explore with new software/systems. 

Non-Profit Resource Specialist


Support Houston non-profits by providing our 700 agency partners with the latest resources for grant/funding opportunities and volunteer recruitment. You will research low-cost resources available to non-profits, and share your findings with our agency partners by contacting them directly, posting the information on our website, and including the information in a monthly newsletter. This opportunity will develop research, writing, and communication skills while giving the participant a more thorough knowledge of the non-profit sector.
