Need: Volunteer with World Pulse: Listening for Social Change

World Pulse is seeking volunteers for our upcoming Voices of Our Future Application and our Digital Action Campaign.

By signing up to become a Listener, you are helping to lift and unite grassroots women leaders voices to accelerate their impact for the world.

What is Voices of Our Future?

Voices of Our Future is an online training program in citizen journalism and digital empowerment for emerging grassroots women leaders. As a Listener, you will be helping to select thirty applicants to become Correspondents and who will take part in the full five-month long program starting in June 2013. Through this program, women will gain the tools and knowledge to vocalize and actualize their visions for change.

You will bear witness to personal stories of struggle and triumph, and hear first-hand the next generation of solutions for our world’s problems. And most importantly, you will become part of a global network of women supporting each other and creating change.

What is a Digital Action Campaign?

With an online, global community of grassroots women leaders, World Pulse has developed a methodology to rally their voices around the issues that they say matter most. Our digital action campaigns elicit powerful content from women on the ground, strengthen their confidence, and ensure that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

For 2013 our Digital Action Campaign will initially focus on Girl's Access to Education; what challenges have they faced, what has been the loss or gain for them, their families and communities. We are recruiting volunteers to join our team as Listeners. You will be asked to read and comment upon a series of short, 500-700 word submissions from girls and their supporters. Listeners also help select the most outstanding stories to be published in an e-magazine featuring content from this campaign.

Criteria and Commitments for Listeners:

  • Regular and reliable access to the Internet.
  • Attend one hour training in the month of March
  • Ability to devote 2-3 hours per week to reading and commenting upon community submissions for Voices of our Future Application: April 2nd-May 6th and/or Girls Campaign: April 11th-May 23rd. (Hours are flexible.)
  • Familiarity with online forums.
  • Ability to provide encouraging, constructive comments on participants' assignments and stories.
  • Heartfelt desire to listen to the stories of women from around the world, and become an insightful and supportive member of our global network of women.

The Benefits:

The deep and soulful satisfaction of knowing you are participating in a program that will be life-changing for the women you will work with, as well as for yourself as you read and react to their inspiring stories. Also, the amazing opportunity to connect with women from Zimbabwe to Colombia, exchange ideas together and become friends.

How to Apply:

If you are interested in becoming a Listener, please fill out the online Application Form Volunteer Application by March 19th. If you have any questions, please email Scott Beck, Online Community Manager, at scott@worldpulse.com

Je pense que le volontariat constitue une richesse. Les femmes leaders devraient profiter de cette opportunité en vue d'aider les autres femmes et, ce dans le but de transformer notre société.
Pour moi, je réponds positivement à cet appel, et ce dans le seul but d'être au service de mes semblables.

Je sollicite mon inscription comme volontaire auprès de World Pulse. Vous m'excuserez de n'avoir pas adressé ma demande directement à Mr Scott. Il s'agit d'une difficulté due à la connexion. Depuis quelque temps, nous pouvons
accéder au website mais pas à l'adresse mail. C'est pour cette raison que ma candidature vient d'être introduite à travers le website. Toutefois, si les conditions nous permettant d'avoir régulièrement accès à l'internet sont réunies, nous serons capable d'accomplir les tâches que vous nous demanderez d'accomplir.
