Seize the opportunity to join the ShelterBox Nordic team !
ShelterBox is made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. No ifs. No buts.
We are an international disaster relief organisation specialised in delivering emergency shelter and equipment to families who have lost their homes after a catastrophe. When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why we provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.
To strengthen our organisation in Northern Europe, we are seeking volunteers passionately interested in helping vulnerable people regain hope for the future. There are many ways to get involved with ShelterBox: as ambassadors, as speakers, as administrative help and even as a ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) member.
ShelterBox Nordic training in Sweden 9-10/9 – 2017
The goal of our training seminars is to give participants a solid understanding of ShelterBox operations so that you can become an ambassador for ShelterBox in your area. Your commitment will help disaster-stricken families throughout the world rebuild their homes and their lives. This initial training will even, if you wish, give you the possibility of applying to become a member of our international response teams (SRT). You will find the dates of the upcoming training sessions on your national ShelterBox website.
As a volunteer, you become a member of the large international ShelterBox team. Upon completing the training session, you will receive ongoing support for your projects and, together with us, help develop both the organisation and ourselves.
The seminar will provide you with:
- An in-depth understanding of ShelterBox operations
- Knowledge and tools to help disaster-stricken families
- An introduction to exciting and successful examples on how to organize fundraising events
- An introduction to event management
The seminar is free of charge and the number of participants is limited to 16 people.
It will take place at: Wenngarn Sigtuna. www.wenngarn.se
Besides a deep interest in helping disaster-stricken people, we would like you to have a good knowledge of written and spoken English as well as your national language. A keenness in communicating with people to help spread knowledge and understanding of ShelterBox activities both internationally and in your country are given pre-requisites.
Our hope and goal is that our ambassadors will:
- Coordinate and deliver lectures to spread knowledge and support for the ShelterBox mission within associations, Rotary and other social clubs and interest groups
- Develop new ideas and channels to market our mission
- Exploit PR opportunities with local supporters and regional media
- Foster relationships with companies and provide them with marketing material to help promote ShelterBox events
- Initiate your own fundraising activities
- Support fundraising initiatives that hopefully arise following lectures
