Volunteers

Become a Feminist Club Volunteer

The Feminist Club aims to be a Grassroots organisation, where all members can be part of the organisations. You can help us out be co-organizing one of our events or by becoming a volunteer.

Below you can find the descriptions of tasks that we need volunteers for.

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? Send us an e-mail at  info @ thefeministclub .nl

We are looking for volunteers for the following positions:

Facebook moderator

Dear members, we are in need of one or more new moderators for the online group. Do you want to be involved with the Feminist Club on a deeper level? And are you interested in keeping this group a safe space for everyone? Then please apply and join the moderator team! As a moderator you make sure that this group is a safe space by implementing the Code of Conduct and when necessary you step in and fix whatever issues may arise.
Requirements for new mods:
  • Familiar with intersectional feminist theory (does not have to be academic)
  • Frequently available online & flexible. However all of us have our own private life and aren’t always available, that’s one of the reasons we need more moderators.
  • Somewhat fluent in English
  • Able to communicate clearly; when rules are broken or members need help it’s important to explain clearly why/how.
If you are interested in becoming a moderator, contact a moderator in the Facebook group.

Website contributions

We occasionally need technical assistance in managing and hosting our website. This is a very small task, so if you have knowledge in this area and a bit of spare time, you’d be of great help! Speaking/understanding Dutch is not required.
Blog Contributors: Are you passionate about a certain topic? Do you make beautiful photographs? We would really love to share your work on our website. We could use more contributors. This could mean writing blog posts, making youtube videos, artwork or other feminist content that we can share on our website. You are invited to make a single contribution, or to become a structural member of the website team. You have a lot of freedom to pick what you want to contribute, as long as it fits the intersectional aims of the FCA.
Editors: We are also looking for new editors who have time to review the proposed content for the website and keep the website up to date.
If you are interested in contributing to the website in in any of the ways mentioned above, please contact us at info@thefeministclub.nl or gargisharmax@gmail.com

Discussion night coordinator

The FCA occasionally organizes discussion nights. In the past we did this every three weeks, but recently we have not been able to this as regularly. We are looking for more discussion night coordinators.
We use three different formats: discussion night around one topic; speaker nights, where we invite speakers to talk about certain topics; and workshops. Generally the nights have an intimate vibe and can be a great place to meet fellow feminists. As a discussion night coordinator you have the following tasks:
  • Contact a location that can host the event
  • Make sure the event is published on facebook
  • Bring the moneybox and nametags to the meeting
  • Set up/tidy up the location; setting up the chairs, opening the door, taking care of the ticket registration, etc, making sure everyone leaves on time and the place is left in the same condition as before.
  • Invite members to organize and prepare a discussion night
We have organized several of these nights ourselves, however we aim to have members of FCA to come with a team and organize the night to keep the grassroots element. We have had a variety of topic in the past, such as anti-racism, feminism & dating and porn. As a new volunteer you might like to organize a night as well to experience what it’s like. Usually this position takes less than a few hours a week. If you are interested send an email to: info@thefeministclub.nl
