Volunteer FAQ

 

How many hours will I be volunteering for?
You will normally be asked to volunteer for around 6 hours which will include breaks. We will ask you to attend a 2 hour orientation a few weeks prior to the event, so you know what to expect. There will be a video made available after this also.

Do I get a lunch break?
Yes, you will get a lunch break and we will provide you with a sandwich, water, tea/coffee.

Can I choose which volunteering job I will get?
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you will get your preferred job, however, please indicate which job you would prefer and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Can I take a break to see one of the speakers?
Please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Can I take small breaks?
Yes but we ask you let you volunteer group lead know so they can organise cover for you.

I’m not technical at all – will I be of any help?
The majority of our volunteering jobs are not technical at all. Please let us know in the additional info section in the form if you prefer a non-technical role.

I’d like to help but I’m not used to working with kids!?
The kids attending CoderDojo Coolest Projects are generally super well behaved so you have nothing to worry about! However, you can let us know in the additional info section of the form if you would rather be assigned to one of our many volunteer roles that doesn’t involve directly supporting the project participants.
