Volunteer OpportunitiesJoin Us
The Global Stroll Buddy Network is a “not for profit” organisation with one goal in mind. “To make the world a better place; one Stroll at the time…”
To achieve this, we simply need to grow. However, growth comes with additional responsibilities, duties and a lot of hard work. We are therefore always looking for enthusiastic volunteers that can assist in a wide range of tasks.
At this point in time, Stroll Buddy is looking to recruit 5 key volunteer appointments that may eventually lead to paid positions.
The newsletter editor will be managing the Stroll Buddy newsletter. Part of this position is the collection, collation and editing of suitable material and contents for our newsletter. Some of the newsletter’s contents is translated from different languages so the ability to interpret meaning and intent is essential. Further, the Newsletter Editor is also involved in actively sourcing new and exciting stories from around the world so the ability to liaise with authors is important.
We are looking for someone with some experience in the publishing field and a good command of the English language. A knowledge of WP will be handy but not necessary as technical training will be provided.

Forum Moderators will be responsible for the general management of the Stroll Buddy forum. We need moderators at several levels and in several areas. However, the main priority is to find an enthusiastic volunteer to take on a leading role. This means advising the Stroll Buddy Board about improvements, requirements, and suggestions to develop and maintain a forum for both Strollers (open forum), as well as Stroll Buddies (closed forum). Naturally, forum moderators must apply their common sense to contents that is posted on the forum and deal with inappropriate content in a friendly, constructive but authoritative manner.

Social Media Coordinator
The social media coordinator’s role will be essential to the success of the Stroll Buddy vision. The Stroll Buddy concept lends itself very well to modern communication and sharing of information through the established social media networks.
We are looking for an outgoing bubbly socialite that is in a position to “own” this part of the marketing strategy.
As we are “Making this world a better place, one Stroll at the time…” this website should be available in a variety of languages.
That is why we are looking for volunteers to assist in translating the website from English into Chinese, Spanish, Italian, German, French, and other languages.
Advisory Comittee member
Are you a strategic thinker? A “blue sky” operator? Then perhaps you see yourself as a representative on the Stroll Buddy Advisory Committee.
The function of the Advisory Committee is to advise the Foundation on issues such as future direction, policies and processes and other strategic and tactical issues of the day.
This is a “ground-up” approach to managing the foundation and the Advisory Committee’s recommendations are very much valued.
Meetings will predominantly be through Skype in English.
