The time has come for us to recruit for the 2019 Community Guide Program!
Community Guides are members of the SANE Community that consistently engage in the forums by providing knowledge, offering support and helping to role model the forums principles and culture.
Community Guides (CGs) are members of the SANE Forums community who live and breathe the forum values, caring for the community and its members. CGs are;
Those who become CGs are typically already leading and role-modelling within the community, most likely without even realising ☺ The purpose of the volunteer program is to formalise what they are already doing well and offer additional support to continue their great work to maintain a thriving community.
We expect our Community Guide’s to commit at least two hours per week (structured at their own leisure) to the below activities:
Most of these activities are called Community Building activities. To learn more about the variety of Community Building activities that CGs can be part of, check out the Community Guide Info Pack [link here].
How SANE supports CGs
The CG volunteer program aims to be flexible and to support the good work that’s already been done. To put this into practice, SANE will work closely with each Community Guide, to assist with:
SANE will support CGs for the duration of their involvement. This will be done through:
Monthly check ins: This check in is an opportunity for the CG to debrief on anything related to the role they wish and to review their CG Plan. We will work with you on what channel/medium we use for this check in.
Community Guide forum: A private forum will be available for CGs and SANE to communicate about upcoming events, to give and get ideas and advice, and to provide feedback when required.
Online resources and training: Online training components will cover topics like ‘Self-care’ and ‘How to encourage people to participate’ and other Community Building activities.
