Help Wanted: Needs a Calendar Editor

Here at the {510} Families headquarters, we need a little help. If you would like to assist us for 4-8 hours each week, doing work that can be done from your own home, during whatever hours you like, please read on.

What our Calendar Editor needs to do:

  • Enter local events that are fun for families in our calendar system. We have a process in place but are open to your innovations. (Sorta, kinda on hold right now, but that is the dream! Right now, it is a little closer to at-home crafting activities with your kids and finding the best of the best online stuff to share with other 510 parents.)
  • Moderate tips and events that are submitted by the community and turn them into useful content for our readers.
  • Curate recommendations for a weekly post (with your own byline) that highlights weekend activities.

Calendar Editor Qualifications:

  • Live in the (510) area code and have one or more children under 5.
  • Write clearly.
  • Have a genuine interest in seeking out new experiences with your family.
  • Be adept with technology and (a little bit) experienced with web-based content management systems or blog platforms.
  • Ability to consistently dedicate 5+ hours per week to this project.
  • Consistently meet deadlines to which you commit

Compensation: $20/hour plus occasional perks such as tickets to local events or destinations. Expenses are reimbursed.

Interested in joining our team?

Please send an email to with the subject line “Calendar Editor” including the following:

  • Why you are interested
  • The neighborhoods in the (510) with which you are most familiar
  • Brief (150 words) summary of a recent outing you had with your child. Tell us about a place you would recommend to a friend!
  • Resume (outdated is fine if you are a stay-at-home parent)
