Awesome new volunteer opportunities to use your IT skills!

At IT4Causes, we’re re-inventing IT volunteerism while we’re serving local nonprofits.  Here are a couple of new opportunities for you to consider!

Business Systems Analysts

We have an on-going project to implement a social services case management system using a cloud-based process management tool. We are seeking assistance in documenting current business process, identifying reporting requirements, mapping those processes to built-in capabilities in the tool, and strategizing how to configure the tool to implement the process. The specific tool is the ETO product from Social Solutions, so experience with that system would be amazing but is not at all necessary. This work will primarily occur in 2-4 hour blocks during the business day. We are seeking people who can provide 8-16 hours per month for 3-4 months starting in December. This work will benefit a group of 10 agencies providing support for early education, family self-sufficiency, and physical and behavioral health for children in Richmond’s Northside as well as around the state.

Cabling Installation

Do you like fishing? Fishing cables, that is! We’ve got a couple projects to enhance the network infrastructure at a couple of local agencies who are helping youth and children in RVA and around the globe. If you can do one or more of the following, we could sure use your help to assist our partner nonprofits!

  • Planning and documenting cable layouts
  • Fishing/pulling wires
  • Installing wall jacks
  • Punchdown
  • Cable testing

WordPress Site Migration

A client has a small website that’s currently hosted on GoDaddy, and the client would like it moved to our shared hosting option. It’s a pretty straight-forward backup/import/test, so it would take a WordPress guru an hour or two, or someone with intermediate WP skills 2-4 hours, and will save the agency a couple hundred bucks a year.

If you are interested in helping on any of these projects, please make sure you’ve completed our Volunteer Form and contact Rebecca Keller at Volunteer.Manager@IT4Causes.org.
