Globe volunteering open morning
16 November @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
As a community non profit we are always in need of helping hands on our volunteer programme. This volunteering open morning will help to share details about volunteering with us and (if you choose to sign up) you can then continue to be inducted into the team there and then.
10am – Information about Globe
We will provide a short presentation about Globe and you will meet and hear from some of our existing volunteers on their experiences. There will also be a short Q&A session for you to ask any burning questions, giving you the chance to decide if volunteering at Globe is something you would like to do. .
As the presentation draws to a close, we will invite those that decide they would like to volunteer, to complete an application form and stay on for the volunteer induction at 11am. Those that are undecided or need to check other prior commitments can return the application form at their leisure and come back for the induction another day.
10.45am – Refreshment break
