Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
Virtual
As a Member of the group, your first duty is to engage with other young people in the one-hour bi-weekly online discussion, if you possibly can. As an active member of the group, you will have chances to discuss ideas for action projects that are helpful to the environment. Communicating with others, decisions will be made about what project is the next one to do and how each person can take part in the project. You might have an idea that you will carry out by yourself, or with another person. The group might decide to do a project for the environment together. This is a dynamic experience of collaborating in small ways or larger ways to benefit the environment. 
 
2 or 3 adults will be available as a Support Group when needed, but will not direct the group discussion unless an intervention is needed or requested.
Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
You could work alone if you have a successful history in fundraising. Otherwise, you would be working with 2 or 3 other volunteers to collaborate in development of a fundraising campaign - using our newsletter, website (under construction) and Facebook. 
We are hoping for volunteers who are enthusiastic, creative, optimistic and somewhat experienced in environmental matters, and comfortable in collaborative action. Interest in tree-planting is desirable but not necessary.

Virtual Zoom meetings
The Development Committee interacts with the Board: brainstorming, making creative suggestions, and collaborating with several Action Groups that are the "front line" of the organization. In general, we need people with a commitment to the natural world and willingness to collaborate with a group to apply that commitment in action. 
 
1. Attending and participating in a biweekly Zoom meeting of the Development Committee, usually on a Tuesday evening, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 
2. Brainstorming and engaging in creative, imaginative thinking with a diverse group.  
3. As much as possible, following up between meetings to report relevant information or ideas for the following meeting.  
 
We welcome and value a few high school students, but we need a majority of adults. We respect that the students must put their academics first, which usually results in losing students at some time in the year.
