Description

If you were buying a gift for a friend, would you bother to think whether they will like it? Of course – yet in the charitable sector only a mere 3% of donors research the relative performance of not-for-profits! Want to change the world by thinking smart? This is the position for you!

About us:

Charity Science is a young non-profit with a small team that is working to do the greatest good for the greatest number of people. We support the most scientifically proven global poverty charities (although we have also worked on other proven areas in the past). We are a charitable grant-making organization that grants to effective global poverty organizations while educating the public about evidence-based charities. We are based in Vancouver, any applicant may work remotely.

About the Opportunity

Charity Science, in consultation with The Life You Can Save, is looking to present Giving Games at Universities, schools, workplaces and community groups to help participants understand the importance of cost-effectiveness in the often misleading world of charitable giving. In a Giving Game, participants are given a set amount of money provided by Charity Science and, after having several charitable causes explained to them, are given an opportunity to discuss and decide as a group where their money should go. This goal is to help participants think critically about what it means to give effectively. This is where you come in: as a Volunteer Giving Games Mediator, you will create a respectful environment whereby participants can develop rational arguments for giving to specific charities. Mediators will be given extensive training from our Charity Science Team to enable educative and enthusiastic Giving Games presentations. This position will give you great practical skills in public speaking, project management, marketing and outreach.

Responsibilities

- Familiar with GiveWell, Peter Singer, Innovations for Poverty Action, or effective altruism

- Proficient at data analysis and research methods

- Own a laptop

- Experience in a developing country

- Previous non-profit outreach, fundraising or communication experience (volunteering counts!)

You can send your creative applications to tee@charityscience.com. Feel free to email us with any questions, thoughts, or comments you have about how awesome it is to marry science with charity.

Requirements

- Passion for public speaking

- Desire to make the world a better place
