Pro Bono Web Content Managers/Writers Needed

A Taproot Content Manager assists the nonprofit client in gathering, organizing, and creating copy for their website. The Content Manager creates some copy, but primarily assists the client in conducting a content audit, creating a content outline, and developing a content delivery plan. The Content Manager also advises on creative elements such as tone and style, empowering client staff to create effective web copy.

A successful pro bono Web Content Manager/Writer:

• Has 3+ years of experience managing and creating written materials

• Has management experience

• Has experience writing for the web

• Must have the ability to translate ideas and concepts into words

• Must be able to provide writing samples

A Service Grant project requires a 3-5 hour commitment each week over the course of approximately 6 months. This opportunity is flexible enough to work around the schedule of a full-time job.

You'll:

• Meet a tremendous group of like-minded professionals

• Deepen your connection with your community

• Keep your skills sharp by applying them in the nonprofit sector

• Share your expertise with others

• Boost your resume and portfolio
