Volunteer Opportunities for Non-Students & the Retired 

For those who are not current students, (which is the majority of FishDuck.com Volunteers) we have most of the same openings as students, but we especially encourage you to consider managing and mentoring the University of Oregon students who join our mentorships.  Often you have years of experience in managing that can be a great help to the site, and expertise in a field that while routine to you–is fascinating and new to the students.  Giving five hours a week to help UO students on an All-Volunteer website about our glorious Ducks?  What could be more fun! unclesamcharles2-e1324009487168-225x300 We have volunteers from those who just graduated right up to the Grizzled Ol’ Coach who is in 70s! Everyone can impact on fellow passionate Oregon fans. Join us and make a difference in the careers of the students while having some fun yourself.  We love our Ducks!

Use Your Management Skills to Help Others!

If you are a retired manager but still want to use your skills on a part time basis, FishDuck.com is asking you to coordinate people and activities, in addition to mentoring others with leadership potential. These volunteer positions require about 5-8 hours a week of which is primarily during the day.  We at FishDuck.com are over 60 volunteers with a passion for Oregon sports and serving others who wish to learn more about them. Oregon Duck Football and Basketball fans from across the nation morph into Writers, Editors, Photographers, and Videographers who work together and are of all ages.  Your expertise will be used to plan content and schedule these talents, as well help guide students in these areas for their future career.  Management experience and skills are a must; knowledge a particular department is not as we will teach you the information needed. FishDuck.com strives to inform and entertain our older and professional readership, so join us!  E-mail Charles Fischer charles@fishduck.com for more of the inside scoop.
