Anytown Leadership Institute
We are looking for a variety of volunteer types with different commitment levels.
Co-Directors are in charge of organizing the curriculum and leading the delegates through discussion during camp as well as leading the staff through trainings. This is a significant time commitment before camp. These people need to be comfortable with the Anytown philosophies as well as leading large group discussions. Must also be available to stay the night.
Family Group Leaders need to be available to attend all trainings and to stay the night all nights of camp. These folks are interacting with and mentoring youth.
At least one logistics person needs to be available throughout the entire camp, while another might be on call and available most days. This position not only anticipates and responds to the supply and set-up needs of the co-directors and family group leaders, but also maintains first aid and other supplies as well as the emergency contact information for the delegates and any staff under 18. A second logistics staff could be on call and come and go as needed.
The observer/mentor would need to be available all camp days and can preferably stay the night. This is a hands-off role that takes note of how activities are being conducted. This person would also serve as a resource for camp staff to provide a listening ear and feedback.
OFT (Organized Free Time) volunteers will come to camp only during our scheduled free time. These people might have a skill to offer or an educational component to teach. Examples of past volunteers: screen printing class (brought all needed supplies and taught small group of delegates screen printing), sports activities (hosted a game of soccer or basketball with the delegates), yoga (taught a group of delegates yoga, brought extra mats for delegates to use). If you have a unique skill or idea for free time, please sign up and we will discuss how you can contribute.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
