Engage Daily Update - 02 June
We continue our Volunteers’ Week celebrations with some member spotlights! Our thanks to Who Cares? Scotland and Paisley Girlguiding for sharing their volunteer stories with us! They’ll be shared on our Facebook this morning before 12pm…perfect for a lunchtime read!
We’re also excited to launch our Volunteer Drop-In sessions! Starting this week our Volunteer Development Officer Alice McBride will be on hand every Thursday from 1:30pm to 2:30pm to answer any of your volunteer questions via Zoom. No need to book a time slot, just message us using firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link!
Support for Individuals
Applications for 2021 Young Leaders Development Programme now open
The YLDP is a free course that aims to equip young people aged between 18 and 35 years old who are resident in Scotland with the leadership skills and climate change knowledge they need to take action on climate change.
Kairos Women+ are looking to recruit a Treasurer and 2-3 general Trustees to their Board – an exciting opportunity to support their growing charity!
You can find the advert on Good Moves here and you can find out more about our existing Trustees here
