i wanted to give an update regarding my capacity moving forward next month. my last payment as an agreement in the contract that we have with Justifay was at the end of December 2022.
i’m currently starting graduate school courses this upcoming week and need to shift how i’ve been spending my time. i’m absolutely not a fan of volunteerism and feel that it’s something that businesses (especially well-meaning ones) tend to exploit. it’s also something that could build resentment once recourses come in and people want compensation for work done under the presumption of volunteering. these aren’t the best set of conditions for fostering a healthy work culture.
with that being said, my involvement within this current period will be more touch and go until Resonate has more consistent funding.
my primary focus during this period is locating funding and applying for grants. currently i don’t have the bandwidth to lead various aspects of this work within a volunteer capacity, given all that i have on my plate and living in one of the most expensive cities in the world (NYC). i want to be transparent and upfront about this with @workers @directors @maintainers so everyone has the heads up.
if anyone else is interested in supporting Resonate in locating funding and applying for grants, please do not hesitate to let me kno! also reach out if you have any questions or would like further clarification.
