WANTED: Your talent!

Working for or with Latter-dayVillage.com

Latter-dayVillage.com has been providing online resources for LDS teachers and leaders for 20 years.  As a wholly digital web-based business, the staff at LDV works part time from home as independent contractors.  This means they keep their own hours that fit their schedule, use their own computers and internet access, usually have their own software for creating materials, and login to our server and website administrative area to publish their work.

This is ideal work for stay-at-home moms, college students, or anyone who needs some extra cash to supplement their income, while using their talents and skills to assist in building the kingdom of God on earth!

Due to the nature of our business and the materials we are creating, it is important to have a strong background in LDS culture, practices, and church programs so that all materials meet the needs of and appeal to our target audience, LDS teachers, leaders and families.
