reasons to volunteer with Change the Frame:
You'll gain invaluable and highly transferable skills and experience
When you're volunteering with Change the Frame you'll be working in real-world situations and learn skills that will carry you well into the future. Whether your role involves organising events, facilitating conversations or developing workshop content, you're more than likely that you'll draw on your skills developed at Change the Frame at some point in your future career.
You'll join a community of fun, hilarious, passionate, like-minded young people
Join a team of enthusiastic, outgoing, friendly individuals who are all working to build a better tomorrow. We may all come from different backgrounds, but together we share the common belief that gender inequality is unacceptable and we have the power to end it within our lifetime. Every volunteer brings a range of unique experiences to the table, so you'll not only learn from the role, but also from the people around you. By volunteering with Change the Frame you'll have the opportunity to network and possibly become friends with a group of amazing young people.
You'll have a significant impact on the movement to end gender inequality in your local community (and hopefully beyond!)
It's pretty incredible the impact a dedicated group of young people can have. At Change the Frame, we believe that by opening peoples eyes to the reality of gender inequality today, they will be empowered to do something about it. Every conversation we facilitate goes towards creating a better, more just future for everyone. Every role at Change the Frame, no matter how small, work towards taking meaningful action against gender inequality.
Change the Frame has really helped clarify my vision for what I want to do with my life and the change I want to create. Volunteering with Change the Frame has been an experience like no other, I've learnt so much about myself and the world I exist in.

what we look for in a volunteer:
the (time) commitment
3-5 hours a week
Depending on the role these hours can include anything from workshop delivery, workshop development, facilitation training, grant writing, responding to emails, research, conducting meetings with schools and team meetings.
6 months
We ask all our volunteers to commit to a six month period. Our workshops in school are often part of an ongoing program. We, therefore, ask our volunteers to commit to at least one semester.
1 volunteer training day every 6 months
We expect all our volunteers to attend two volunteer training days a year. These training days include facilitation training, mental health first aid training, workshop development training and team building exercises.
1 team meeting a month
We expect volunteers to attend one whole team meeting a fortnight. These team meetings include developing content, brainstorming idea and generally catching up. These meetings usually run for 2 hours
volunteer FAQ:
Do I need experience?
No! As a not-for-profit, we are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds. If you are interested in what we do but you've never delivered or designed a workshop, apply anyways! You will be given plenty of time to adapt to your role, and you will be supported and given training.

The most important things we are looking for are passion and the ability to work in a team and work effectively to meet deadlines. As a small organisation, we depend on the input of every single volunteer, so being reliable is essential!
Do I need to be studying gender studies, education, or a related topic?
Absolutely not! Feminist education happens in a number of ways, and it's possible to be very knowledgeable about feminism without ever having studied it formally.

We do look for volunteers who have a pre-existing interest and a working knowledge of feminism, however we recognise that there are many different ways to be a feminist, so we won't give you a list of 'essential' debates or topics. If you spend a lot of time thinking about feminism and gender equality - you probably fit the bill!

We have a number of education professionals on our team, who make sure our workshops align with the curriculum, and provide advice on delivering workshops in schools. With their help, we ensure that our workshops fit into what educators want, so don't worry if you don't have any experience with education.
How will I be supported?
As a small team, all of the work we do with Change the Frame is highly collaborative- you will never be left to do something on your own! We will provide training and personalised support to ensure that even volunteers with no prior experience are able to improve their skills and deliver high-quality content. This includes a volunteer training days (run every 6 months), the opportunity to participate in a two day mental health first aid training course, and meeting with education professionals and non-for-profit mentors.
