Unlike Community Volunteers, Events Volunteers are not required to attend meetings only participate in Fundraising and Promotional events. This allows much more flexibility for those who want to volunteer with Crime Stoppers but can’t commit to monthly meetings.
Our Community Event Volunteers have two primary roles:
1. Promotional Activities
Crime Stoppers Event Volunteers attend fun, local events such as:
- school fetes
- regional shows
- shopping centre displays
- community presentations
- advertising opportunities
The distribution of promotional material at these activities provides communities with immediate access to our hotline, website address or mobile app. This direct contact is instrumental to the program’s ongoing success.
2. Fundraising Events
Our Volunteers coordinate fundraising events for the benefit of both their local community and the State rewards program. Yet another way that they contribute to your local safety.
Fundraising activities include social events like:
- Golf Days
- Bowls Days
- Horse Racing Days
- Sausage Sizzles
- Walks Against Crime
- Trivia Nights
How Event Volunteering works?
Decisions about which events to coordinate or attend are made by the Community Volunteers at meetings and communicated with an availability roster to Event Volunteers. It is expected the Event Volunteers attend an introductory meeting with the committee, a minimum of 3-4 events throughout the year and maintain communication with the Volunteer Area Committee.
Event Volunteering with Crime Stoppers is easy, fun and rewarding:
- 31 locations across Queensland
- Minimum commitment of 3-4 events a year (4-5 hours)
- 1 meeting per year (1-1.5 hours)
