We've made it easy for you to start helping today.
Contributors of all kinds are welcome to attend orientation and attend membership meetings. In the meantime, please have your friends and family in South Dakota take our online Communities First Survey!
Support Organizers Are you good at checking your email, good at customer service, and would love the chance to make some excellent part money for a cause you believe in? Paid SOs earn $2 for every person that takes our survey and we do the marketing for you! You just have to reply to any questions they have. The vast majority don't have any, but training is free and if there is a question you can't answer, it gets escalated. There is also opportunity every week for other Paid Organizer positions that pay minimum $25 an hour.
Citizen Journalists Do you have a strong educated opinion on a measure? Are you aware of a community issue that needs solving we are not addressing? Do you support other service organizations that need promoting? We want to amplify your voice! People who create meaningful and relevant content to improve our communities in a blog format will get compensated for the traffic they create. SDCA does all the promotion, partially targeted directly to the people who might be the most interested in the issues you bring up, be they relevant locally or statewide.
Technical and Specialized Support Are you good problem solver and know your way around technology who can regularly check email? These email campaigns and don't run themselves, and neither do the analytics, legal, operations, and administration! To be truly scalable and grass roots we need good communicators and good problem solvers of all types. If you have a skill, we want to help find a way to put it in use for our communities. We are competing in a very marketing heavy, commercial weary population. On getting the public's attention - we need all the ideas and help we can get. Attend membership meetings and be part of the solutions getting paid $25-50 an hour, but be prepared to be self-motivated. What gets done and how it gets done is going to be largely left to you and your ability to communicate your efforts with the membership.
