Hello Prospective SAMRU Volunteers!
Andrea Davis here. I'm the Student Services Manager here at SAMRU, and working with volunteers is my core area of work. I work with Asma & Maham in Volunteer Logistics for the 2019-20 year. Thanks for your interest in volunteering! We are currently only accepting applications for Community Garden Volunteers for the Spring and Summer months. In August, we will open up general applications again for many of our other volunteer roles, as training sessions happen semi-annually in September and January only.
If you're looking to start getting to know people in the SAMRU/Volunteer community, a good place to start is our Face Book group page called: "SAMRU Volunteers". Find us and ask to join the group. We want to hear from you! Please also follow @mysamru on Face Book, and @samrubuzz on Instagram & Twitter to stay up to date on what's happening at SAMRU.
Before you start volunteering, you are required to sign up and complete New SAMRU Volunteer Orientation (group session) AND 'Working Across Difference' training. Once those sessions are complete, we will activate your profile on Volunteer Impact, and you can then get started with some volunteer shifts.
We'd like to be able to show you how to sign up for an opportunity, orient you to the new app called, 'My Impact', show you how to use time clock, log hours, chat on appreciation, volunteer training, other volunteer roles and help make your overall volunteer experience with us at SAMRU a good one. Please contact us at: email@example.com.
We want to help you connect with more of your peers to build friendships, and to have plenty of fun, engaging experiences. Tell us how you'd like to be appreciated. Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation. You make a difference every time you help out, from programming to committee work, to supporting your peers and helping out in the garden. Thank you for all the great work you do (and will do) with and for us! Keep coming back!
