VOLUNTEER AT OUR EVENTS
Due to the current UK epidemic of coronavirus and recent government advice, most events have been cancelled or postponed.
You can still register to receive updates of artist events and Christian festivals you could volunteer for in the future.
What happens when I register?
Registering doesn’t sign you up for anything, it will give you access to the list of volunteer opportunities where you can find out more details about each event (date, place, etc) and what will be expected of you. It will also allow us to send you email updates about volunteering with World Vision and when new volunteer opportunities open up (you can unsubscribe at any time).
What will I be expected to do?
Each event varies so it’s best to refer to each specific volunteer opportunity. During artist shows, you’ll be asked to help supporters who want to sponsor a child, complete an application form. At Christian festivals, we’re creating fun and interactive experiences to show how supporters can transform the lives of the most vulnerable children, so you’ll be helping with the stand, interacting with people and inspiring them about our work.
Please bear in mind that most volunteer opportunities will require you to stand up for long periods of time.
What will I get in return?
You’ll get free access to the event. Free tea/coffee and snacks may be provided depending on the events. You’ll have to arrange for your own food, transport and accommodation (check the terms and conditions for each event).
All training and support will be provided, and you’ll get a certificate of appreciation.
What skills and experience do I need?
You don’t need any specific skills or experience to volunteer but it’s best if you like talking and interacting with people. Having said that, if this is a skill you want to develop and you’re enthusiastic and ready to give your best, then come on board.
What should I wear?
Smart casual is fine, black trousers/jeans and shoes are best. We’ll give you a World Vision t-shirt to wear (to be returned after the event). You may want to have a long sleeve top underneath to keep warm depending on the events (not all locations are heated and the World Vision t-shirt needs to stay visible at all times whilst volunteering).
If you have any other questions about volunteering for World Vision, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
