Action Shero/ Hero/ Theyro Volunteer
Work Jams : Exchange + Collaborate
Blank Noise works with its Action Shero, Theyro, Hero Volunteers, i.e. YOU to keep the projects going. Work Jams are weekly sessions where we strategize, coordinate, plan and execute. Blank Noise is running and envisioning numerous projects that require a range of tasks to be performed, from research, brainstorming, to video documentation and outreach. All skill sets are welcome.
Volunteering at Blank Noise starts with Work Jams but does not end there.
What is a Work Jam?
The Work Jam is a program designed for Action Sheroes, Theyroes, Heroes who are passionate to contribute, ready to work hard, and offer generosity. An Action Shero, Theyro, Hero Volunteer 3 month cycle asks you to keep 90% of your Saturdays.
1 CYCLE = 3 MONTHS = Min. 9 Saturdays
What happens in a Work Jam?
Each Work Jam is unique. It brings together Action Sheroes, Theyroes, Heroes to meet in person, further the movement to eradicate sexual and gender based violence. Action Sheroes, Theyroes, Heroes, work to meet campaign goals, collaborate, and deep dive into a range of tasks.
In 2018, Work Jams were held in Bangalore only, with volunteers in other regions signing in online . In 2019, the Saturday Work Jam encourages volunteers globally to organise Saturday meet ups with fellow Action Shero, Theyro Hero, volunteers closer to you, followed by a google hangout, or zoom call in with volunteers across the country at the end of day.
