Someone asked how technical communication skills can be used in the

That's the purpose of STC's award-winning community service: to find
opportunities to use our skills to the benefit of community organizations.

Some opportunities we've taken:

o Writing articles about our own work for the magazine published by a
local science museum
o Serving as tour guides and demonstrators at the science museum
o Teaching people to read through literacy groups
o Writing grants for senior citizen's advocacy groups
o Judging in local science fairs
o Preparing educational materials for family health organizations

The best place to start locally is a resource center for nonprofits.
Support Centers of America are located in several major metro areas,
including Dallas, Washington, DC, and suburban New Jersey. In Atlanta,
we have the Nonprofit Resource Center. They can usually match you
with a volunteer opportunity.

Active involvement not only benefits the recipient organization and builds
your resume, it also helps promote technical communication by showing
what we can do and how it can benefit organizations.
