Be a ‘Champion’ for Volunteering
Volunteer Centre Camden receive many requests for someone to talk to people in Camden about volunteering. We do this where possible, but firmly believe that the best people to promote volunteering, are people who volunteer themselves.
We are looking to train 14 people who already volunteer in Camden. The training will be delivered over 2 days. 1½ days will be spent on presentation skills, the remaining time will be used to give a brief overview designed to equip participants with the skills to answer general questions about volunteering in any organisation.
In return for the training we will ask volunteers to commit to delivering up to 4 presentations to small groups of people in Camden. These will be people who want to find out more about volunteering. There is also scope to attend a number of fairs, open days and community events to promote volunteering generally and with the organisation that you are involved in. This will also be an opportunity to promote volunteering opportunities within your organisation. Volunteer Centre Camden will pay travel expenses for the training days and presentation days. Volunteers will be asked to work within our equalities policy, and to feedback issues raised during discussions and details of people interested in volunteering to Volunteer Centre Camden.
Training will be delivered on 3rd and 4th September. The applicants supervisor or volunteer coordinator will be asked to confirm that they volunteer, are reliable, and that they are happy for the applicant to represent their organisation. Volunteers will need to complete both days of training. Successful applicants will be informed as soon as possible.
