COMMUNITY RESEARCHERS FAQ
HOW CAN I BECOME A YOUTH RESEARCHER?
If you are age 18-29 and have an interest in gaining research experience and working on projects, you can join Community Researchers as a youth member. After joining, you will be invited to upload your resume. When suitable projects become available, our team members will pair you with a mentor and help you manage your project. We believe that skilled workers should always be paid and most gigs pay $1000-$4000 flat rates.
DO YOU HIRE FULL-TIME RESEARCHERS?
No. Community Researchers connects young researchers with established mentors to complete individual research projects. After working on paid contracts, researchers may share their work with potential employers to demonstrate their experience and skills.
HOW CAN I BECOME A MENTOR?
Experienced researchers who want to help the next generation learn skills and expand their networks can become mentor members. Upon joining, you will upload your resume to be considered for suitable gigs. This is not volunteer work and all mentors receive honorariums ranging from $1000-$4000. Once selected for projects, mentors must submit vulnerable sector screening documentation.
HOW CAN OUR ORGANIZATION RECEIVE A QUOTE FOR A RESEARCH PROJECT?
Community Researchers was established to provide surveys and other research services to nonprofits, charities, start-ups, and small businesses that do not have access to professional research firms. Projects are never free but costs are reasonable and in some cases are subsidized by government programs. Visit our quote request page to submit your project. Please note that an organizational membership is mandatory to be considered for any project.
CAN OUR ORGANIZATION HIRE YOUNG RESEARCHERS THROUGH YOUR ORGANIZATION?
Absolutely! One of the main objectives of Community Researchers is to provide opportunities for youth and graduates to build careers in research. Clients are always encouraged to hire researchers who work on their projects. We can also assist non-clients who wish to recruit young researchers.
