Junior Volunteer Allocation Panelist – 2 positions

Young people are active, engaged members of a community and have an interest and stake in a broad range of issues and provide a valuable contribution to our community.

To determine where our donations go, we go directly to our community and ask if they would like to volunteer their time to participate in the allocations process. 

General Description

Allocation Panellists are volunteers appointed by the Community Sub-Committee of United Way Glenelg.  The major responsibility of Allocation Panellists is to review Community Organisations (Community Partners) Requests for Funds and make recommendations for funding of specific initiatives that will address the current need areas identified by the community. 

We provide you with information about the community organisation, their project, including their requests and financials. You will then listen to presentations by those community organisations, including a Q&A session, which allows you a full understanding of the community organisation request.

Then, the hard part! You will discuss and debate all the requests, needs and decide those projects that take priority. This is not an easy task – all the local community organisations in our area do amazing work, but we are limited by the number of donations we receive.  You need to work together to find the best solutions for each project and how to best distribute donated funds.

Key Responsibilities & Time Commitment

You will be guided by Nicole Carr, Executive Officer from United Way Glenelg. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

Expression of interest close Friday 13 August 2021.
