Volunteers needed at PSR's DC Office
Have a morning, afternoon or a full day or two each week you'd like to engage in constructive work for Physicians for Social Responsibility? We'd love to have you. Our staff is small and can always use extended family to help get projects done.
We often have a project or event that an extra pair of hands could assist with: bringing petitions to the White House, tabling at a fair to give out info or taking photos at an event. In the office, there's always data clean-up, proofing and research -- both administrative and programmatic.
Whether you are retired, mid-career in between jobs, or either in or just out of school and wanting to learn more, we're interested in talking with you. Any member of the staff may have a need, but if you have a preference, we can try to accommodate it.
Candidates should have good command of the English language both verbally and in writing and agree with PSR's mission.
Interested? Please email email@example.com
Location: Washington, DC
