Over the next couple of weeks, we want you to get to know the fabulous volunteers that make Aware tick. We’ve profiled all of our volunteers, and we can’t wait for you to get to know them.
What’s your role at Aware?
Hi my name’s Lily and I manage the Aware blog. I have been involved in Aware off and on for the last two years, but have recently been volunteering more diligently for the last six months. I’ve helped to create Aware’s social media strategy and some goals for growth. I’ve recently been invited to join the Aware board and am so excited to be able to help ensure that Aware can continue their good work for years!
What’s your day job?
I’m the online campaigner for a climate change organisation in Melbourne.
What sparked your interest in volunteering for Aware?
Working in the climate change sector, I’m deeply aware of how people in developing countries are already effected by climate change and how their environment and livelihoods will be further compromised. Aware’s programs that encourage self-empowered and creativity are such powerful solutions to the Problem We Face (ie Climate Change).
What has been some of the highlights of volunteering at Aware thus far?
I’ve loved implementing our social media plan and seeing our following growing on facebook. I also cannot get enough of sharing all the wonderful programs and stories here on this blog!! I cannot wait to be able to go on a field trip with Aware and to be involved in a program on the ground (and write many a story about it too probably!).
