Why would you volunteer

Who are we looking for?

Everybody! You may think “I don’t have enough experience” or “I don’t know enough.” Please don’t let that hold you back. We welcome anyone from students to people who have been doing this for twenty years. Often someone who has just come to the online community can offer fresh new ideas.

The same with age, we are so diverse and want and need the skillsets of younger people and the wisdom of those who have been doing this a lifetime.

How can you help?

Different Options

2Board DirectorWe are always looking for more board directors. What would this entail? You attend our board meetings once a month on a Saturday morning. You can start as a director without portfolio and either figure out if you would like a particular function or if you would enjoy staying a direcor without portfolio and help out where needed most.
5Occasional Volunteer e.g.: supporting conference and webinars.If you don't want to commit to helping out throughout the year, we do have some months during the year that we could do with some more help. Think about helping to put the yearly conference together and helping out on the day. Or occasionally help us with hosting and organising a webinar or workshop.

Get involved in one of our special interest groups

One of the biggest projects for the coming years is to set up a resource base with all kinds of information for members. These groups will be on the website. Some will only be a resource base but others will have working groups attached to them. It is up to the volunteers on how how big a group/page will be and to get this off the ground we need you.
4CYPCYP has a very active group who organize webinars and produce blogs and the CYP competences. We could use some help populating the CYP webpages.

It is very rewarding to see a conference come together.
