Community Ambassador

The main role of a Community Ambassador is to speak publicly on behalf of TWAM and be our public face in their locality. This will mean receiving invitations from a variety of groups wanting a volunteer speaker to talk about TWAM. Talks can be from 10 minutes to 40 minutes long and may include a Q&A session. Please don’t worry as we will not ask you to speak at a meeting you are not confident to attend.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

Groups such as Rotary, U3A, and WI ask for talks about TWAM.

We also work with many Churches who ask us to speak at Church Services and Mid-week meetings (we will only ask a Christian comfortable with this setting to speak at Churches).

We will provide talks and presentations that you can use, and for our busiest Community Ambassadors, we can also provide projectors and screens.

We ask our Ambassadors to try and get their own meetings as well as waiting for those referred by us. An email or phone call to a local group will often lead to an invitation. 

WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL YOU MAKE?

This is an incredibly rewarding role as you get to meet lots of people and excite and enthuse them with the work of TWAM. Your enthusiasm will also help TWAM raise vital funds, gain the tools we need to operate, and gain new volunteers. This is a great difference to make!

You’ll join our Speaker Network with lots of support, resources, ideas and opportunities for training. You receive a Speaker Pack, TWAM polo-shirt and fleece. You’ll be invited to Volunteer Days and Open Days.
