Volunteer Opportunities

The world loves Gritters: People who work through boredom, frustration, and confusion to reach their goals – in school, work, and life.

Want to help the students and job seekers build grit? Check out our current volunteer opportunities:

Profile Question Editor

The Gritter Profile needs ongoing editing and content. We seek volunteers who have an excellent written command of the English language. No other subject matter expertise is required. You do not need to have any teaching experience. We promise that your thinking will tighten considerably after working on this opportunity.

WordPress Editor – Look and Feel

The Gritter Profile is administered by Rising Stars Foundation – and our web site is risingstarsfoundation.org. It’s a WordPress site and we need a webmaster to create pages, menus, content, and an engaging user experience. If you love designing beautiful web sites using WordPress we’d love to hear from you.

php Programmer

Gritters need your help. Gritters are high school students who may not have great grades but will be tomorrow’s leaders. We have a site (gritterprofile.org) that is in a state of constant enhancement. If you have a passion for education, are a talented php programmer, and want to work on exciting innovative projects we’d love to hear from you.
