The TechSoup Online Community Forum is a place where nonprofits, libraries, NGOs, communities of faith, government programs, community groups and other mission-based organizations can ask questions and offer advice about computer, Smart Phone and other tech tools they use to serve their clients and communities and to manage their work.
First-hand experiences from employees, consultants and volunteers themselves at these mission-based organizations about how they are using software/apps, scheduling software, social media, collaboration software, etc., or how they are maintaining hardware at nonprofits, is what makes our community so effective at getting organizations and groups the information they need and it helps TechSoup know what trends are affecting the nonprofit sector, libraries, etc.
The volunteer moderators here on TechSoup are not always people that you might think of as "IT experts." They might be
TechSoup welcomes all of these people, and many others, as contributors to the TechSoup community anytime, as well as volunteers who can make a weekly or monthly commitment to answer questions in our forums. To get started on the community:
Our current forum moderators take notice of community members who are answering questions, starting threads or contributing to threads at least 3 or 4 times a month, and if a member is providing quality information regularly, we then reach out to that person about possibly becoming an official volunteer moderator of the forum.
Frequent community contributors who want to become committed volunteers (committing to 5 hours a month of volunteering service, for instance) are also welcomed to help with various simple online research tasks.
If you need a letter confirming the hours you commit as a volunteer with TechSoup, follow steps 1 - 3 and, after 2-3 weeks of participation, contact this TechSoup moderator and explain your situation.
Why make an ongoing commitment to volunteer on the TechSoup forum?
Everyone is welcomed to engage with TechSoup in pursuit of becoming a committed, regular volunteer for the communities. We are also very interested in welcoming more women, more people of color and people under 40 as volunteers.
