7) CaVolunteers work

CaVolunteers work

My name is Leah Farkas and I am the lead researcher working on a project aimed at measuring volunteerism inside the California state-run prison system. The project is funded with federal grant money through CaliforniaVolunteers, Office of the Governor. I am looking for several student volunteers to help me with data entry over the next month or so. The work will be completed at two locations. The first is during the regular work week at the CaliforniaVolunteers office located in downtown Sacramento across from the Capitol. The second is in the bay area (exact location still to be determined) on April 22nd from 9am-5pm.
We are asking for a 6 hour minimum commitment from each student volunteer to be completed in one or two sessions. There is also an opportunity for up to 40 hours of volunteering per student.
Please note that volunteers working inside the CaliforniaVolunteers’s office will need to fill out and sign some standard paperwork at the beginning of their first shift. Volunteer shifts are now open and will run through at least the end of April with additional possible opportunities in May depending on work load.
