From an Idealist email: ( is a nonprofit job site)
our upcoming season of Graduate School Fairs, and a big project we are
doing with the Mozilla Foundation (the Firefox people) to connect

programs in fields such as Nonprofit Management, Education, Social
Work, Global Health, International Affairs, Law, Public Policy, Urban
Planning, and many more.

Mozilla Service Week

Idealist is partnering with Mozilla (the organization behind the
Firefox browser) on their first annual Mozilla Service Week which will
match thousands of "techie" volunteers around the world with
nonprofits in need of help with IT, web design, programming, blogging,
and more.

Mozilla Service Week will take place September 14-21, 2009, and
organizations are so eager for volunteers that a couple of thousand of
them have already posted their opportunities.

If you are comfortable with technology and would like to help out, or
if your organization could use some help, please go to:

And to help spread the word to nonprofits and techies around the
world, please go to:

Thanks again!

I am going to peruse the site again soon and the Mozilla Service Week. Hopefully I'll get a job or at least some direction from it. If you are looking for the same, I would suggest you go there too!
