Community Activator

As a Community Activator at The Mix, you will be part of an online community with a focus on injecting fun into our community spaces. You will be responsible for facilitating activities or events that help young people to have fun, connect, make friends, develop and/or further interests and hobbies, learn from eachother, build their confidence, and explore their creativity and identity in a safe environment anonymously online. Through this, we aim to help young people expand their support network, feel more connected with their peers, fostering a sense of community, togetherness, and belonging.

What is the Community Activator role?

As a Community Activator, you will be assigned one central activity/event to facilitate on a monthly basis online (although there is the option to take up a more flexible volunteering role at times that suit you*). This could take place via our discussion boards, text-based support groups, or via social media. This could include:

• Community quizzes
• Film nights & chat-along
• Bookclub
• Game nights
• Online open mic nights
• Art/craft nights & chat-along

This list is not exhaustive and we will happily work with you on what event/activity you would feel most comfortable facilitating. We would also really encourage you to apply if you have ideas for additional activities we could run as we’re open to hearing your thoughts and suggestions.

There is also the option to co-facilitate events/activities with another volunteer if this would feel more comfortable for you.

For more information, please refer to our role description.

*A flexible version of this role is available. This would involve designing and running fun activities / discussions either on our discussion boards or over on social media at times that suit you.
