I can think of a wide array of tasks that NYRA members can do in their spare time. Whether you spend 30 minutes a week or well over 30 hours a week, your time would greatly benefit NYRA.
Instead of watching a television show or playing your favorite video game on one night of the week, you can help NYRA. If you think you cannot help NYRA, then think again!
We currently are needing volunteer support in all of areas of the organization. If you are interested in working with people, then perhaps a job as a Regional Chapter Formation Captain would interest you. The captains work regionally with people who are interested in forming chapters of NYRA. The work is not that hard, and all you need to do is to help as much as you can so they can get their chapter formed. If you are interested, fill out an application and contact Adam King. There are currently three regions in need of chapter formation support.
If you would prefer to work behind the scenes, then you could design and develop parts of our website and forums. There is always something that could be enhanced or updated on our site, and new chapters will be needing websites to promote their chapter. If you are interested, fill out an application.
In addition to all of this, there is even more that you can do to help!
For example, you could help update and embellish the content on the Youth Rights Network.
If none of this is your cup of tea, you can start a chapter of your own in your area, join a local chapter, write brochures, write blog entries, or even donate money to NYRA.
If you have done all of this and still want more, or if you are interested in doing something else, contact NYRA.
There is also a thread on the forums that can keep you updated of opened volunteer staff positions within NYRA. Go here to view this thread.
Instead of complaining about NYRA not doing enough, help out!
Good exhortation to get people to help NYRA out. 🙂
