Volunteer Projects

Prepare for Change Volunteer Projects are used to enable Volunteers to take action by giving them specific goals, tasks and resources needed to accomplish the Project.

The PFC Projects are listed at the bottom of this page:

The Volunteers Assembly allows all volunteers to become involved without a specific job, but with an orientation and training component they use to learn a job. Because of this we have opportunity for new volunteers to “get their feet on the ground” regarding PFC’s Mission and Organization and to choose a project that fits with their situation.

The Volunteer Assembly is the  incubator of new projects supported by PFC. Within the Assembly, the Project Formation Team’s role is to work with the Council to create Project Proposals. Each Project Proposal is designed to enable a Volunteer leader to take responsibility, assemble a team of other Volunteers and begin the project. The Project Formation Proposal is formed with clear goals and resources, with the sponsoring Council Members tasked with supporting the Project Leader with advice and resources as deemed necessary to succeed. Often the goals are general and evolve as the project progresses.

Below, please read about PFC’s existing and new projects. Each Saturday we meet to discuss our projects and answer questions from new Volunteers. This is the Volunteer Orientation Phase of our regular online Zoom conference and you are invited to attend. See the Volunteer Assembly page for more information!

Project Name
PFC Webserver Project
Project Description/Purpose
The server project is ongoing since the beginning of PFC. Its members are all qualified and knowledgeable to adjust the settings in the backend of WP. Tiago has been its leader while I have been involved and has the respect of all the IT volunteers, who depend on his integration and understanding to support all the aspects of the PFC Server. The IT Team follows al the activities of PFC, and is ready to add what is needed when it is needed. There are several important positions that remain to be recruited, A database developer would be great, but we are able to meet these needs within the team for now.
