Peace House recently revamped its website and added two Facebook pages, one for the organization generally and one for Uncle Foods Diner. All of them need contribution to remain fresh and useful. Other diverse communication opportunities are also available below. This opportunity includes intense learning from a professional. A prerequisite is to attend a group orientation meeting. After that, volunteers who wish to continue must make a commitment of at least one month of service. Much of the work can be done from home, but some group interaction will be an important aspect of the experience. After-school service opportunities Training and on-going supervision will be provided in all areas. Having access to a computer with internet connection and email account is necessary.
- Post materials on Facebook as directed (must be willing or already have a Facebook account). Learn the power of social media to influence the world.
- Make changes to the website as directed. Opportunity to learn Word Press, HTML skills, video embedding, web site management and more as skills increase, including databases, photo manipulation, etc.
- Develop a list of sites relevant to Peace House programs and establish links to them. Develop online research and web site skills.
