Join our Communications Team - Become an Outreach Volunteer
After a successful pilot programme, we're recruiting a team of dedicated people to become Outreach Volunteers!
We have seen a huge surge in young people standing up and taking action on issues that affect them. To reach those young people with our support and resources, we created the Outreach Volunteers Programme. The idea behind enlisting Outreach Volunteers is to expand our reach in communities around the world by building a team of motivated people who can help us by sharing our content and reaching out to young changemakers directly. That is where you come in! If you’d like to become an Outreach Volunteer, here what you need to know.
What you would need to do:
There are between 5 and 10 required tasks, which involve using social media and directly reaching out to people about our programmes as well as supporting our Communications Manager in the launch of new programmes.
There are additional optional tasks which you are welcome to help with if you would like. Each task counts for a certain number of points which correspond to extra rewards.
Complete an evaluation survey at the end of your volunteering term.
Who can apply?
Anyone between 15 and 25 years old
People who regularly use at least 2 social media platforms with a combined total of at least 500 friends/followers
People who have at least 2 hours available weekly from 1 April to 15 May
