We’re looking for volunteers who would like to spread the word of Mary’s Meals within their own communities and who can inspire and motivate others to support our cause. If you have a little time to spare, you enjoy meeting new like-minded people and you’d like to help chronically hungry children around the world, then our Community Ambassador role is perfect for you!
Volunteering to raise awareness could simply involve screening one of our documentaries to your friends and family or it could be to distribute and display our publicity material in your local area, such as in doctor’s surgeries or libraries. If you don’t mind public speaking, we can also train you to visit schools and other local organisations to give presentations and motivate support for our cause.
You would also be encouraged to fundraise for Mary’s Meals. Again, the range of activities involved in this aspect of the role are tailored to suit different skill sets and time constraints. Fundraising could be as simple as placing a collection can in your local shop, or it could be organising your own community fundraiser.
This role allows you to raise awareness in your own community in whatever way you feel comfortable and whenever suits your diary. This is a great opportunity to enhance your communication and/or event management skills, while also making a huge impact on the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable children.
Initial meetings with potential volunteers will be conducted in early 2018. Full training and support will be provided.
