Volunteers Sought

Tales from a Small Planet, the first comprehensive web resource for expats, is seeking new volunteers to take it the next step. Critical positions to be filled include Executive Director and several Board members.

When bidding season rolls around, Tales from a Small Planet, at, is the website people visit first to research potential assignments. Our Real Post Reports have helped thousands find answers to what it's like to live in cities from Abuja to Zagreb.

Will you need a 4WD vehicle? Where do Americans live? Tales from a Small Planet gets more than 75,000 individual page views every month from people asking questions like these. And our Real School Reports provide even more detailed answers about schools at post.

In short, ever since Tales was founded as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in 2001, we've helped a lot of people find information about life abroad. Perhaps we've even helped you!

Now Tales needs your help. We're looking for a few smart, thoughtful and action-oriented people to join our staff and our board in volunteer positions that add up to only a few hours a month. You may not get paid,* but you do get a spiffy title to stick on your resume, some great experience, and the chance to help a worthwhile cause. Please contact for more information about the following open staff and board positions:
