Great that you know people who want to join the movement! The answer varies slightly on where the person lives:
If this person lives in your city, where you have a Hotspot: invite them to join you! A great first step is typically to attend a makesense event to experience it for yourself. From there, you can invite them to co-facilitate a workshop with you, and then next they can do so on their own. We’d recommend introducing new members in your Facebook group as well as to your Community Developer, too.
If this person lives in a different city that already has a Hotspot: connect them with the Gangsters in that city! Have your friend join the local Facebook Hotspot group and introduce themselves, or reach out to your Community Developer. The local team will help welcome them in!
-> If this person lives in a city without a Hotspot or where you’re not sure if there is one, connect them to your Community Developer, who can help them start a Hotspot or connect to the nearest one.
Lastly, if this person is interested in volunteering with makesense but on one specific cause that we have a mobilization campaign around, they also can join the appropriate Facebook group related to that cause to connect to others around the world with the same passion. We would always recommend, however, that new volunteers connect with their local Hotspots regardless, since it’s largely the offline connections we make with people that are the magic of makesense!
