Monster Corps

What Monster Corps does for AMT

AMT is all about making access possible yet we are also volunteer run which means we always need resources. Often time and effort is as valuable, if not more valuable, than cold hard cash. Monster Corps is the program we use to organize the group of awesome folks who give us 8 hours of their time on operational tasks a month in exchange for membership.

How things work when you are in Monster Corps

Joining Monster Corps means joining AMT, and the process is much the same with a few tweaks.

How Tasks are Assigned

The Monster Corps Coordinator works with MC members on task assignments and deadlines. At the end of the month you provide a schedule of availability for the next month. You are assigned a schedule of tasks based on that info by the MC coordinator.

We use Slack as our primary communication platform and to manage task and track completion. Please be willing to work comfortably in these digital environments or to learn how to use them.

Who can be in Monster Corps

Anybody can be in Monster Corps… Well, anybody who normally qualifies for membership. Formal Monster Corps members are folks who completed the application process.

If you are an AMT member outside the Corps who would like to benefit from the program, please contact the coordinator to be added.
