XR is a “do-it-together” movement and everyone has unique skills that they can bring to the Rebellion! Below is a list of our subgroups and the vacancies/tasks that we are currently looking for volunteers for. It really doesn’t matter how many hours a week you can spare – we’d love to hear from you! And if there’s nothing listed that takes your fancy but you still want to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage our members to change roles regularly – it prevents burnout, keeps us motivated and means we’re always learning. So if you put up your hand for something, don’t worry, you’re not expected to do it indefinitely.
This page will be updated regularly so do please keep checking back in.
