Volunteer Harm Reduction Ambassador

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: ParaDocs Ambassadors

Music festivals, concerts, cruises and many other large gatherings can often be a confusing and overwhelming setting for some people. Hundreds to thousands of people pack into close quarters, where it can often get very hot and uncomfortable. Many times, alcohol and recreational drugs can play a role as well, causing anxiety or other physical symptoms.

In these situations, people can sometimes be intimidated to approach a uniformed officer, security guard or medical staff for help. Our Ambassadors serve to assist patrons in need of help by bridging the gap between the patron and our medical team.

We encourage Ambassadors to mingle, make friends, and have fun, but be on the lookout for anyone or anything out of the ordinary.

As an Ambassador, you will be assigned to walk the event grounds and have fun interacting with the attendees! While in the crowd, you'll keep an eye out for anyone who may be in need of medical assistance and offer to help them get the help they need. You may also be asked to help with water distribution to crowds at the stages.

Although you will not be asked to provide any medical care, volunteers with a medical background are preferred.
