Mission-driven organizations increasingly recognize the need to tell their stories more effectively. They need skilled volunteers to help them do it.
Skill For Good is a pilot program developed by Democracy Labs in collaboration with Esri. This new effort seeks to build a network of volunteers with storytelling and map-making skills, and to match them with nonprofit organizations that need help conveying the nature and importance of their work.
The basic concept is an 'Uber-like' model—using technology to match volunteers with nonprofits, quickly, by focusing narrowly on digital and map-based storytelling. Organizations get help, and volunteers get the joy of applying their story map skills to a worthy cause.
