The role of an Aspire for Equality volunteer is extremely important. Volunteers are the first point of contact each day for our delegates. Their initial interaction with you will help set the tone for the remainder of the day. We are looking for selfless individuals who are ready to serve others and are able to put their own needs aside to focus on providing a quality event experience.

Workshop attendees come to Aspire for Equality events for many reasons. Some have been to workshops before and know what to expect, while others are joining us for the first time. Volunteers are needed to help participants and assist staff, by donating their time, effort and services.

Volunteer Duties

Being a volunteer at an Aspire event is an opportunity to experience an Aspire workshop in a different way by being a support to the attendees and experiencing the background work that goes into creating an Aspire event. You do experience the content, but at the same time find ways to encourage and empower the women attending, as well as developing your own team work and leadership skills. You will join a small and hardworking team with the common goal to make it a life changing experience for both the volunteer team and the attendees.

There are a variety of different jobs to get involved in, which will include welcoming attendees, registration, supporting delegates, helping with small group work, and general organization. This is a chance to work in an empowering team, learn new skills, give back, have a lot of fun, and make a difference for the women attending – you will also get a lot out of the event yourself.

You will need to be there for an early start and coffee at 7:00am for our team meeting and will finish by 7:00pm. All meals and drinks are provided along with an Aspire T-shirt and the workshop slides and workbook.
