365 Volunteer Roles
On this page
Volunteering for 365 can be an exciting and rewarding challenge; a chance to be part of a vibrant national project. It is an opportunity to meet new people, develop new skills, have fun and try something different.
You won’t be left on your own to do lots of work, but will be supported through networking and regular contact from the Children, Youth and Family Team.
All those leading and volunteering as part of the 365 process will be required to undertake our webinar training on Unconscious Bias and Inclusivity as well as our briefing sessions on the process of engagement in 365. All of our volunteers receive training, coaching and preparation.
District Ambassador Teams
Each district will have a District Ambassador nominated by the District Chair. The Ambassadors will be a cohort of district representatives, working alongside the Children, Youth and Family Team to achieve the aims of 365. Each Ambassador will facilitate a team based in their district. This team will be comprised of registered volunteers and 3Generate Youth Rep(s), all of whom will be resident in the Ambassador’s district. The team will also include Youth Ambassadors (16-17 year olds), who will be recruited by the District Ambassador with the support of the 3Generate Reps and Youth President.
The purpose of the District Ambassador Teams is to engage in dialogue with people within their district, including local churches, group leaders and children and young people. The teams will communicate ways in which these groups can get involved in 365. They will also encourage the creation of smaller local groups within circuits, as well as connecting within the district. This will enable local churches to engage as an intergenerational community in supporting 365.
Specifically, District Ambassador Teams will:
- facilitate regular ‘Tune In’ events for children and young people and their leaders, which will help them create community across circuits and districts
- liaise with the Satellite Group Leads who are working on 3Generate Event 2021, sharing the voice of the children and young people to inform the creation of the 3Generate event 2021 programme
- attend briefings when needed
- download, read and share 365 resources
- Follow the lead and instruction of the Lead District Ambassador, set by the District Chair
If you are interested in fulfilling a District Ambassador role, we recommend that you begin to look at our 365 Toolbox to prepare you for the 365 Journey.
Download our resource 'Accompanying children, young people and leaders on the 365 journey' to help you to reflect on how you can be part of 365; recognising, releasing and responding to the prophetic voice of children and young people.
These are groups of staff, volunteers and children and young people who have a focus on the development of the 3Generate 2021 programme. They will enable children and young people to take a leading role and contribute to and shape, the 2021 event. The Satellite Groups will liaise with the District Ambassadors to hear the voices of children and young people coming from the ‘Tune In’ gatherings. This will take the format of a virtual gathering of Ambassadors and Satellite Leads, facilitated by Children, Youth and Family staff team.
