Volunteer Positions & Job Description
A passion for Football and ability to have some serious fun is a pre-requisite for all positions.
Event Coordinators (Nagpur- 6Nos, Chennai - 5Nos & Kolkatta - 5Nos)
Event Coordinators are the SWAT team of Slum Soccer. Okay, maybe you won’t need a gun but you will definitely need to be able to think on your feet and work with teams. Event Coordinators help organize the wonderful events that we have at Slum Soccer intermittently and it is a great opportunity for those who want to be a part of Slum Soccer but have time constraints. A bachelor's degree in the ancient Indian art of "Jugaad" will go a long way in making you a star Event Coordinator.
Fund Raising Volunteers (Nagpur - 2 Nos, Chennai- 2 Nos, Kolkatta - 1, Delhi- 3 Nos, Mumbai - 3 Nos, Banglore - 2 Nos, Pune - 2 Nos)
So you are the guy who somehow always managed to get a "treat" at the college canteen? Maybe it is time you put your skills to some real world use. Fund raising volunteers must have good people & networking skills. Smooth& suave mannerisms are part of the essential skill set (Think Leonardo Dicaprio from 'Catch me if you can', not Circuit from 'Munnabhai MBBS').
Field Volunteers (Nagpur - 3 Nos, Chennai - 4 Nos, Kolkatta - 3 Nos.)
Field volunteers are at the heart of the Slum Soccer model. People who are interested in experiencing the concept of 'sports for development' will be trained and allotted a center to manage and coordinate.
