Join our team: We’re looking for a HOMEcoming Volunteer

oikos HOMEcoming Volunteer

Have you ever wondered what oikos International is all about?

Do you want to be a part of a diverse team that is tending a global community of student change agents?

This is for you! Apply to become our volunteer responsible for the oikos HOMEcoming initiative & help us bring our history to life!

What is the oikos HOMEcoming initiative?

oikos homecoming is an initiative that was started in 2021 by a project team with oI team members & alumni. The intent was to recover a coherent stream of information on our history in oikos and to make the learnings more accessible for future generations. The results of several months of project engagement are a portfolio of formats and information that can inform our future and help us tell our story out there. 

Whereas phase 1 (conception & set up) of the project is coming to an end with the end of 2021, we aspire to move into a second phase that is all about implementation, activation and re-sharpening.

What are the responsibilities of the oikos HOMEcoming volunteer & what is the estimated time commitment?

The purpose of the role is to take on responsibilities in the homecoming initiative such as facilitating, communicating, maintaining & strategizing, so that our history can become a vivid, colorful, evolving base for our future action. As a volunteer, you would help strategizing our roadmap for the second phase of the project, which is about the implementation and sharpening of all formats.

The time commitment is flexible, with an estimation of 3-5h/week on a self-paced, virtual basis. The volunteer will start in March and the position will be focused on the project, closing at the end of 2022. It would be great if you already have an idea about – or experience with – oikos, either on the chapter or the international level.

Tasks can include, but are not limited to 

  • Optimizing the web-presence & communication strategy for the homecoming initiative
  • Creating maintenance processes for the database
  • Facilitating homecoming events
  • Answering comments & emails

What will you get from joining the team?
