Humanists International is dedicated to building the worldwide humanist community, to networking our Member Organizations together, and to advancing our policy agenda at the international and regional levels.

Some of our volunteer opportunities can be worked remotely (online) from anywhere in the world. No previous experience in the organized humanist movement is necessary.

Country Researchers (Freedom of Thought Report)

The Freedom of Thought report surveys discrimination against the non-religious around the world. You can read about the project and discover the entire Online Edition on the dedicated website at fot.humanists.international.

A team of researcher volunteers works to keep the report up to date on an ongoing basis. You may either join the team with permanent access to the report’s collaborative editing suite, or if your availability is limited to a shorter time frame you may be able to focus on a specific country, countries, or region. Some skills and experience in writing, research, or policy work would be beneficial.

Volunteers for this project can work remotely from anywhere in the world. Some use of email and online documents will be required.

Apply: To apply as a volunteer researcher please complete this online application form.
