There are many ways to join the Commonweal community—making a donation, attending one of our New School or other program events, participating in one of the Collaborative for Health and the Environment calls, or volunteering your time and skills. Jobs and volunteer opportunities are listed below.
Healing Circles Registrar
Healing Circles Global is a nonprofit whose vision is to provide positive social support to anyone who asks for it. This takes place in small circles built on a framework that brings out the best in people. It encourages participants to treat one another with kindness and respect, hold one another’s stories in confidence, withhold judgment, and honor one another’s unique path to healing without advising, fixing, or rescuing.
The services we offer take place through Zoom. The primary role of the registrar is to create connections between those services, the people who can benefit from them, and the volunteers and staff who support them. The technologies the registrar will use include Salesforce, WordPress, Sawfish, Google Workspace, and Form Assembly. Direct experience with these tools is not required, but a sense of technological adventure, a willingness to learn, and comfort in an entrepreneurial/start-up environment is. 15 hours per week working remotely.
