Volunteer Opportunities with Catholic.net

Catholic.net is made possible through the invaluable work of its volunteers. Please prayerfully consider using your talents to build up the Kingdom of God through online evangelization with Catholic.net.

General Requirements:
All Catholic.net volunteers must be faithful to the Pope and his teachings. No exceptions are made. We have many exciting positions that can be filled by religious and laypersons alike.  Catholic.net volunteers are expected to dedicate a minimum of two hours a week -- but can give as many more as the Lord allows them. If you are applying for a position that requires teaching the Catholic faith your level of comprehension of Church teaching and the topic you choose will be assessed  to ensure our users are instructed according to official Church teaching in all areas.
Location: Anywhere (internet).
Language:  Fully proficient in English.

DESCRIPTION OF POSITIONS:

Catholic.net Expert –
You know it all when it comes to a particular topic as it relates to our Catholic faith. If you are not working as a professional teacher you surely are one at heart. You will be responsible for responding in a timely manner to our’ inquiries about the topic of your expertise. If you agree to, you will also be made available as source for news media inquiries. There is a lot of glory in being Mr./Ms. Know It All, but on the daily basis this position requires a lot of charity. The volume of user’ inquires is high and can be overwhelming. Many users are not Catholic and their questions are often posed in a non-charitable way; nonetheless, your answers must always be kind. It is no doubt a lot of work, but this is the right place to be if you want to use all that knowledge God has given you to build the Kingdom of Christ.

Catholic.net Experts Liaison – Catholic.net is working to supply the demand for Catholic voices in the secular media. As a Catholic.net Experts Liaison you will be responsible for organizing bios of our experts and keeping an accurate database of their contact information.

Catholic.net Missionary
– We hope to have literally thousands of Catholic.net Missionaries. As a Catholic.net Missionary your job will be to make your fellow parishioners aware of Catholic.net through prayer groups (novenas, Rosaries), Mass and parish bulletin announcements. We also hope that you will reach out to your local Catholic schools. We will help you in your mission with ideas and instructions through the Catholic.net Missionaries forum and periodical e-mails. This is a great way to get involved with both Catholic.net and your home parish. You are also expected to work closely with your parish priest in this apostolic mission.

Catholic.net Missionaries Liaison –
You will support the important work our Catholic.net Missionaries do by keeping a database with their contact information. You will keep in touch with them through their forum and a weekly e-mail alert to address their concerns, requests, share their success stories, and tell them what is new on Catholic.net. You will also be in charge of identifying parishes that do not yet have Catholic.net Missionaries to recruit new missionaries.

Comment Reviewer – Comment Reviewers are crucial to guarantee Catholic.net’s transition into interactivity at its best. We have decided to allow our users to voice their opinions after reading an article. We want them to exercise ownership of Catholic.net. However, users could submit comments that are offensive. Your job is to read up the comments to the articles on your community (channel) and approve or reject them. It is straight forward business. The challenge is that we need to have the quickest turnaround possible, so that we can approve a user’s comment no later than 20 minutes after it is posted, to achieve that we need hundreds of volunteers. Would you help us?

Ecclesial Relations Specialist –
You are a Catholic culture whiz. You are outgoing. You are a visionary. We need your help to contact Catholic leaders to determine how Catholic.net can serve their apostolic work and bring them aboard. You are expected to keep a database of these key contacts for consistent outreaches.

Editor –
Reliability and accuracy are key to this position. English proficiency is also paramount. As an editor you will be responsible for researching your topic (church history, parenting, finance, etc.) under the light of Church teaching to ensure our users receive the best content possible. Some interaction with additional content providers to your community (channel) may be needed. You will write and edit articles for clarity and accuracy according to Church teaching. You will nominate articles to be highlighted, and will be responsible for sending out weekly newsletters, either written by yourself or another Catholic.net writer.

Catholic.net Evaluator –
We are forming a committee of editorial reviewers to consistently evaluate our web portal’s orthodoxy and efficiency.  We are interested in forming a mix from religious persons, to cradle Catholics, to Sunday Mass Catholics. Mass media and tech professionals are also needed to help us with input in how to make Catholic.net up-to-date in those areas. We are interested in all feedback we can get. Catholic.net Evaluators have a guide to help them make systematic evaluations.

Forum Moderators - Moderators play a fundamental role in regulating how topics are covered within the many Catholic.net forums. You will act as a guide in conversations by encouraging participation and debate, keeping order, editing or deleting offensive messages, and reporting abuses of our forum rules. More importantly, you will make sure that at the end of each debate the Catholic viewpoint has been made clear and that users were directed to the appropriate sources to learn all that the Church teaches on that particular topic. You will also be entitled to open, close, and redirect debates to ensure the best experience to our users.

Fundraising Specialist – Financial donations are essential to keep Catholic.net on. We need all the help we can get in fundraising. Prior experience a must! You will work closely with Catholic.net staff on operations of fundraising initiatives.

Graphic Designer – We are always in need of graphic designers for campaigns of all sorts: prayer, fundraising, advertising, cross promotion, new editorial offerings. If you have some graphic design skill, please help us.

Media Relations Specialist – We need someone with media relations experience, who understands how a newsroom works, and how journalists think. We will do the boring part. We write the releases, and send them out. We mostly need you to pitch. Your help will particularly come handy to make reaction outreaches timely. Your input to our overall media relations strategies is also very welcome.

Public Relations Specialist – We need a PR-savvy person who can represent Catholic.net with the general community (excluding the Catholic or the news media communities). Your help will be essential in building bridges for ecumenism (for pastoral purposes) and governmental relations (focused on policy and fundraising). Any outreach must be pre-approved by Catholic.net management. We will work closely with you to ensure that your work supports the interests of local dioceses and to help the pro-life cause. An example of your work would be developing a plan to raise awareness of Catholic.net users to the Defense of Marriage Act, or the late petition to end partial-birth abortion, or the ongoing signature-gathering campaign to stop tax funding of Planned Parenthood. These are initiatives that often have been led by Protestant groups; we need the Catholic community to get more involved.
Translator – We are in great need of translators for Portuguese, English, and Spanish. We ask that the language you will be translating to be your first language. Familiarity with Catholic terms is a plus! We have many awesome apostolic projects on hold because of lack of translators. Please hurry!

Volunteers Liaison – Our volunteers are essential to our apostolate. In this position you will be responsible for communicating with current volunteers should they have questions, requests, or need to make arrangements for periods of absence. You will write and submit periodical letters to our volunteers letting them know about our new projects and how they can get involved. You are expected to monitor our volunteers’ forums to make sure we can address their concerns. You will also be in charge of identifying new volunteer opportunities within Catholic.net and recruit new volunteers. It is a lot, but we hope to have several people accept this role so that they can work collaboratively as their schedule allows.

Writer – If a blog is not the only place you have been published. If you are in fact a professional writer -- the kind who makes a living out of writing – and now you want to use your professional writing skills to build up the Kingdom of Christ, then Catholic.net needs you as a writer.
