How you can participate
Greenstar plans to install 300 Solar-Powered Ecommerce Centers in developing countries around the world, over the next five years.
We will be hiring staff and consultants for both domestic and international projects, chiefly research, marketing, personal communications and technology projects. This represents a career opportunity, a chance to enter new jobs that contribute to the health of the planet and to its cultural diversity; rewarding new potential employment.
Greenstar is looking for people who can begin work now on small, specific projects. They will begin by demonstrating their skills through a brief volunteer assignment, performing about 16 hours of work on their own computers and Internet connections, talking with Greenstar staff on the phone and email over a three-week period. These assignments require no travel, and limited expenses which are covered by Greenstar; they can be done from home or office.
People who do well on this initial unpaid evaluation may then be given paid work at $15-20 per hour, undertaking short 2-3 week assignments in their spare time, and will be asked to bring another person into the Explorers pool to replace them. They will also receive a letter of reference from Greenstar, recommending their performance as an Explorer.
Of the people who receive paid assignments, a few may eventually be offered the opportunity to join the Greenstar staff. They will have started by showing enthusiasm, competence and interest from the ground up, and we will have gotten to know each other over a period of time, in a very practical way that benefits everyone.
Here are several of the Explorers programs now being actively developed by Greenstar Explorers:
New assignments are now being developed, of similar character. Some assignments will be suited to young people, age 13 and over; some will be suited to people with specific skills, for example in telemedicine, wireless communications, international languages, etc.
