Volunteering Roles Available
(All roles will involve mentoring)
Preference will be given to volunteers that can commit long-term and that can attend our monthly Team meeting 2:15 pm on Fridays.

Funding Committee leader - URGENT
Helping us to think of ideas to raise funds so we have more resources to do our awareness work, apply for competitions, think out of the box.. Current funding structure: currently, unlike traditional NGO's in Luxembourg, becoming a member of our association is free to make it more accessible, therefore we rely on the income from our events and workshops to cover our running costs and enable us to further our awareness goals. But we would also like to make more of our activities free, therefor we are looking for someone to help us think of and implement innovating ways to raise funds.
Event Planners & Facilitators:
We can never have enough event Facilitators and Planners. We believe "building a village" is key to the wellness of new and expecting parents, especially in a country where many of us are expats.
Parents Circle: monthly, we are always looking for more facilitators
Positive Birth Movement Meetup: Are you passionate about birth, informed-decision making and empowering birthing families? Or are you a birth/related field worker? We would love more facilitators at our monthly group as part of the global movement to spread more positivity in birth. Because, every family deserves a positive birth experience.
Help us in keeping our team inspired and motivated, help to arrange the monthly team meetings, organise gifts for special events, arrange the 2x py team building activities that help our team to be cohesive and search for, communicate, interview and integrate potential new volunteers
