Volunteer Opportunities

batyr volunteer AND volunteer team captain
(New England, Central and Far West)

Time Commitment: 2-3 hrs per week

About you:

More than anything else we are looking for young people, aged 18-30, with a passion for smashing the stigma around mental ill-health and promoting help-seeking opportunities for young people. We want someone who is keen to share their ideas and perspective on how we can better engage youth in your community and who is willing to put time into this role to develop the program and extend batyr’s reach beyond its current state.

Position Description:

In 2020 we are establishing our first volunteer program in an effort to put young people at the heart of outreach and community engagement to further extend our reach and impact. The Volunteer Team’s primary objective is to consult with the Being Herd Coordinator on key decisions around engaging youth in your local area in positive conversations about mental health. We want your opinion on our batyr programs and initiatives and their relevance to your local community of young people. You will also be required to attend community events to recruit participants for workshops and fundraising challenges. It will also be the Volunteer Team Captain’s responsibility to implement a morale strategy to ensure volunteers in the program remain engaged, are supported to reach their fundraising targets and have a positive volunteering experience.
