Volunteers Needed To Create Free Google Sites Websites For Nonprofits

Nonprofits do so much for so many yet they lack the manpower, time, tools, skills and knowledge to create and manage their own websites. 

Sites SOS Templates needs volunteers to create nonprofit website templates using Google Sites. There is no obligation to work on jobs or give more time than wanted. You decide when, what and how often you volunteer. Any amount of time will be appreciated.

Do you know of someone who might volunteer?Tell them about this opportunity to advertise their work and help others who really need it at the same time. 

Can you volunteer?  Think about helping, however little or much you can. 

For more information, contact me for the details.



What Is A Google Sites Website?

Google Sites is a free, online tool offered by Google to create and manage a website, also know as a Content Management System. 

It creates Wiki type websites, a type with features that allow groups to communicate and work together.

Its strengths are the ability for groups to communicate and work together, ease of learning, its use and integration with Googles' other products into a website.

Other Google products that can be integrated into  or connected with a Google Sites website include Google Places pages, Google + profiles or pages, Gmail accounts, Google  Presentation, Google Docs spreadsheet forms and Docs files or any combination of these and other Google products.

Volunteer Dream Team

My dream is to form a group of volunteers to help nonprofits with their Google Sites websites however needed.

Having enough volunteers would benefit all involved.

  • allow more jobs to be done concurrently
  • get jobs done faster
  • offer more ideas and experience to the job 
  • give volunteers breaks between jobs
  • perfect website workflow

What Do Non-Profits Need?

My experience has been that most nonprofits want a simple online presence that is well organized, easy to use, easy to work with others (as needed), easy to manage and ,when done, to receive training and support. 

While creating beautiful websites is sometimes a desire, often they are happy using simple Google Sites themes. Their concern is getting work done first and appearance second.

Volunteer Experience

  • experience preferred but will accept little experience if willing to learn
  • formally educated or self-taught
