We value our volunteers who truly help make a difference to the quality of the many SOUP special events.
We're Looking for An Assortment of Volunteer Leaders!
Please take a moment to see if your interests and skills line up with our new opportunities to contribute to the SOUP pot. SOUP tastes better with more flavour added!
Steering Committee Members
SOUP is run by a steering committee of seven people who meet once a month to manage SOUP's resources, develop jam programming and organize special activities.
We want to build on our pool of people who know how to lead the Monday night jams in strumming and singing songs. We will train you, hook you up with a mentor, put you in the schedule when it works for you, and even find you a buddy to co-lead with if you like. Bring your talents to the team!
We want to grow our ukulele skills together! We plan to offer one or two free Post-Jam Tutorials each month from 9:00 - 9:40. We want your ideas (what do you want to learn?), and your specific proposals for tutorials that will enhance our jams. If you feel you have a skill to teach and the teaching talents to bring that across effectively, we want to know! Some possible tutorial ideas:
We are looking for a larger number of people to rotate as jam hosts or mentors for new members on Wednesday nights. The role of a host/mentor is to welcome new members, sit beside them and assist them through the jam (help with tricky chords or songs), answering any questions they might have. We hope to have a few hosts for each jam who are identified so that new members know who to seek out. Any of you well seasoned SOUPers are perfect candidates!
Volunteers - Special Events
We continually need the skills of volunteers to help keep SOUP operating at its best. Whether you're more comfortable being visible or working behind the scenes, there are committees and special events that need your contribution. If you would like to volunteer to help at special events, please contact the Steering Committee by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will put your name on a List of Volunteers and contact you when volunteers are needed.
