The Urbanette Handbook


Volunteer Staff Guide


We need reliable, enthusiastic, hardworking, and dedicated volunteers and interns who genuinely care about the growth of Urbanette. To ensure that we are a good fit for one another, we have compiled the Guide and the Handbook.

Please read them over thoroughly and use them for reference. Please check them before you ask us a question, as it’s probably already answered in there.

Our staff requirements will ensure that everyone involved receives the maximum benefits out of the internship and volunteer programs.


  • You must have submitted your signed Volunteership Form in order to work with us and/or get credit on your resume and/or from your school.
  • Keep track of ALL assignments as soon as you get them in the Article Assignments spreadsheet.
  • Every Monday morning, send [email protected] a ‘Weekly Update’ email outlining your progress/what you did that past week (& give us links) and what you’re going to work on in the coming week.


Do NOT share this page or our documents – it is confidential and for our staff/volunteers only.
Not only did you agree to keep it confidential when you signed the Volunteership Form,
