Time Commitment Life by Design has an immediate need to fill these volunteer positions. In order to get the website up and running in a timely manner, the initial output of time will be greater than post-website launch. We want to both accommodate the Writer/Reseacher's schedule as well as meet our in-house deadlines. This is a short-term temporary job to enable the website to be functional and well established.
