    We work with members of this team on very specialized tasks (e.g. Facebook ads, Google grants, Google ads management, email account management, accounting).

    Selecting and training core team volunteers is an important process at RUF. Most of the time, the actual time requirements needed for being part of the RUF core team exceed what a person can offer. Volunteer work requires many months of participating in meetings, and occasionally the time needs spikes, and work happens at odd hours.

    If you have a great personality, you really love what we do, you have a lot to offer (especially from a communications standpoint), and you can offer a solid amount of time, let us know, we need you today :). Are you ready?
