Educators are constantly submitting requests for (virtual) speakers to discuss a range of topics with their classes. You can stay up-to-date with these volunteering opportunities a couple different ways:
1) Check your inbox. We'll email you when speaking requests pop up that match your skill set (so make sure your profile includes your many talents!). Sometimes teachers will ask for you specifically, and sometimes we'll hand-pick opportunities that seem like a good fit. You'll get messaged either way, so be sure to check your email regularly. And add Nepris to your contact list to ensure the messages catch your eye.
Once you've started to browse, you can refine your search via the filters on the lower left panel of the page and by using key words in the search bar. You can also easily reset your search by clicking on Reset at the bottom of the column, or remove individual filters by clicking on the red x next to the defined filters:

On the page that pops up, you'll learn more about the virtual volunteering opportunity - the educator's scheduling preferences, preferred discussion topics, age/grade range of students, etc. If you'd like to participate, just click the "Yes sign me up" button and follow the prompts. Note that you'll be asked to log in to complete the sign-up process.
That's it! After you sign up, you'll receive a confirmation email and next steps for connecting with the learners. Have a great time!
