Giving What We Can is seeking applications from our members to participate in our 15-month Ambassador Program.
In this volunteer role you will be helping to coordinate locally around effective giving projects, and collaborating on global projects. You will work closely with other ambassadors, the Giving What We Can team, and effective altruism groups to help spread ideas of effective giving.
Our Ambassador Program offers training, and opportunities to help develop skills and experience in communications, community building and leadership. Participants also have an opportunity to make new friends, build a global network and develop a sense of belonging while getting involved in local and international events and activities.
Approximately 6 hours per month for 15 months for active participation in the core program activities.
You are welcome to apply for a shorter period or resign from the program if you no longer have capacity – we just ask that you communicate this clearly and promptly.
Each program has a 3 month period which incoming ambassadors overlap with outgoing ambassadors to provide the support and transition.
Aside from the intrinsic benefits of participating in a program to help spread effective giving, there are other tangible benefits for ambassadors.
Throughout the ambassadors will benefit from regular training and feedback (from experts and their peers) in leadership, communications, community building and more.
Alumni of the program are invited to help develop future programs, mentor new ambassadors, and participate in future activities such as media interviews and pledge panels.
