Thank you for your interest in helping us grow Discover Nikkei! We have a very limited budget to run this project and so we depend on volunteers to help us with all aspects of the site as well as related virtual programs and promotion. Language support is needed in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Editing / Proofreading
- Web Development
- Graphic Design / Illustrations
- Video Editing
Most Discover Nikkei volunteers work remotely and communication and coordination is primarily done through e-mail or through Slack. All volunteers must be able to communicate in writing and verbally in basic English, although Japanese and Spanish can be accommodated as secondary languages.
You do not need to be a professional in the area that you are volunteering. Many of our volunteers are students or others wanting to gain experience, while others just want the opportunity to learn about new topics, contribute to the documentation and exploration of global Nikkei history and culture, and connect with Nikkei around the world. Volunteers just need to demonstrate proficiency in the area of work. Writers/editors/translators must submit samples that demonstrate fluency and skill in the language they will be writing/translating into.
