APPLICATION FORMS

Times are Changing at The Yogini Project

After years of all online content for The Yogini Project by all contributors being on a volunteer, service level, from this summer 2018, these will become paid positions.  Responsibilities, number of hours, and monthly pay will all be set.  For the first 2-3 months, based on degree of contribution, these above positions will be on a service level, ie not paid, for the new team to be properly trained and integrated.  We are looking at July 2018 to transfer these roles to set, paid positions, through the following year. The positions will be reviewed annually.

They are part-time positions, for dedicated practitioners to supplement their livelihood while fulfilling the altruistic purpose of the project.  This has become possible due to the growth of the project and the flourishing this year of our in-house art gallery Dakini As Art

We are so grateful to all the dedicated, good-hearted contributors to The Yogini Project’s amazing online content these past 6 years!

 

Application Process

Applications for these new positions will come live to The Yogini Project website on Sunday, April 15th.  Look to announcements via social media, new links to the site, or the update to this blog with the live link.  Beyond the online application, for potential candidates, 1) there will follow an assignment of one static page subject and one blog topic to research and create as indicative of one’s potential work for the project, and 2) a skype interview with a member of The Yogini Project core team for final candidates.

APPLICATION FORMS ARE LIVE HERE

Applications will be accepted from April 15th – May 5th, 2018.

Applicants may continue to apply to join the Yogini Project content team as volunteers following the selection of these two paid positions.
