[Education] Volunteers Needed!

Education committee volunteers needed!

Ed team

 

Millen Farm’s education committee conducts regular workshops on a range of topics and our dedicated team needs a few more volunteers to join us to help with workshop coordination.

Workshop coordinators have the chance to learn about a wide range of farming and food topics, meet other volunteers and engage with enthusiastic participants who are keen to learn. It’s a very rewarding way to engage with the community.

We need an administrator for existing workshops to take care of these tasks:

  • Liaise with other volunteers including note-taker, photographer, hospitality team
  • Refresh articles on the workshop topic for the Millen Farm website and print media if necessary
  • Complete risk analysis
  • Monitor ticket sales
  • Print feedback forms
  • Set up venue including signage, chairs, and equipment
  • Oversee the smooth running of the workshop on the day
  • Beginning of the workshop: welcome, safety checks, brief overview of the day
  • End of the day: feedback forms, vote of thanks, clean-up
  • Following workshop: Write report based on feedback forms.

In addition to these administrative skills, we need educators to help develop new workshops. These coordinators:

  • Discuss workshop content with presenter and brainstorm ways to incorporate participation and active learning techniques
  • Regularly interact with presenter/s to ensure the smooth running of the day, and sound educational practices are incorporated into the workshop.
  • In collaboration with the presenter, write articles on the workshop topic for the Millen Farm website and print media.
