What is a makesense volunteer?
A volunteer at makesense is an active citizen who organises events tackling issues that affect him / her. Being a volunteer at makesense allows you to:
- – Meet other citizens who ask themselves the same questions as you.
– Discover more projects in your city, your country or the world that provide solutions to today’s major challenges.
– Learn more about the issues that move you.
– Develop skills in different areas: event facilitation (communication, animation), postures and methodologies (non-violent communication, kindness, collective intelligence).
Volunteering at makesense starts with participating in events in your city on the social issues that affect you. It may be a local tour around the neighborhood to meet social initiatives around your home, a happy-hour to discuss a hot topic and understand what individual or collective action you can take, or a hold-up to help a social entrepreneur solve a challenge on his project.
Once you have experienced different types of events, you’ll be ready to organise your own events on topics that affect you. To do so, several tools and supports are available to you to guide you in this journey!
Once you have chosen the format that suits you best, you can follow an online training course. During this training, we answer all the questions you may have about the organization of your event: which issue should I choose? How to gather people for my event? How to facilitate the discussion?
After that, all you have to do is take the next step, organize your event, and enjoy it!
