I recently applied and was successful in becoming a SUBU Digital Champions Volunteer leader. This role will see me taking on the following tasks:
Working with Skills & Learning Bournemouth, Dorset & Poole the purpose of this project is to help those who don’t know how to access the internet to get online and learn skills in order to enable them to do so. The Project Leaders will co-ordinate with Skills & Learning and local libraries to set dates for the project and will advertise those on the SUBU Volunteering website. A small team of Digital Champions will go out to local libraries or other sites at least once per fortnight during term time. As Project Leader you will liaise with the council to agree tasks, meeting dates/times and locations and advertise this to the student body. You will co-ordinate student groups and ensure that volunteers are motivated and enthusiastic.
What is the Volunteering Leadership Team?
The Volunteering Leadership team is made up of the Volunteering Committee, Project Leaders for each volunteering project as well as MAD Day Leaders. Collectively the team exists to help plan, organise and run the events of SUBU Volunteering. All volunteering Leaders work in their own areas to promote the value and success of volunteering among the student body. As a collective, the leadership team works together to create and run volunteering events and to establish on-going volunteering projects.
This role will help me to learn new skills as well as become more confident, whilst encouraging others to join in and help many good causes. I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the team and taking the steps to help make a difference in peoples lives.
