HC Volunteer Opportunity

We are looking for a volunteer to help with the online learning-and-community platform we have identified to use for spreading Heartful Communication in North America.

Volunteer 

  • Has practiced Heartfulness regularly for at least one year,
  • Is interested in Heartful Communication, and
  • Is “tech savvy”: someone comfortable with online platforms, has ease with understanding how to customize the default to the functions we want to use. (No coding required)
  • Has time and availability over the coming 2 months, to dive into this project
  • Lives at commute distance from either Fremont or Berkeley

Tasks

We have identified a platform that we would like to try out for HC. The task at hand is to work closely with Maja – lead trainer for Heartful Communication – over the next 2 months, with the following

  1. clarify and make sure platform meets our specs,
  2. set up a 60 day trial account,
  3. customize HC-space on platform
    • with our content and id,
    • create simple procedure to add e.g. training segments
    • train other content providers (HC training team, 5 peeps)
  4. test run with actual users (i.e. existing HC students, ca 100 peeps)
  5. help determine if we go forward with this platform and a full account, and if so
  6. launch to larger group in North America, for national test run

After 2 months we would assess if and when and how to launch wider, while continuing to add training content.

Time commitment 

  1. Setup phase: There will be much work for the first 2-3 weeks of setting this up, guess is 20 hours to make it into what we want to use.
  2. Test/maintenance phase: Once we have users testing the site/platform, there will be 1-2 hours per week of “maintenance” and problem solving.
  3. Expansion phase: At next point of determining to go forward, there will be another labor intense period (1-2 weeks) to make site available more widely
  4. Ongoing maintenance, 1-2 hours per week + more if we begin hosting large online training events.

Platform

is called Mighty Network, and we think of it as a blend of Facebook and Udemy.   If you are interested in offering your volunteer time for setting this up, please start with exploring the platform here.
