Our volunteer teams are at the heart of the World Council. They keep the organization running by maintaining this website, organizing events, editing and publishing the Intercultural Connector, compiling and sharing resources with the community, and more.
We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to any of our teams. If you are interested in volunteering us, please contact Amy Rasmussen:
- Events: This team plans and/or communicates conference meet-ups and virtual gatherings. When the World Council has events, the team may assist with planning and organizing the events.
- Publication/Editorial (Newsletter): This team develops the World Council Newsletter through soliciting submissions, reading and selecting submissions, editing articles, and developing creative design.
- Web Development: This team builds out and updates the World Council website. This involves learning resources, researching and adding plug-ins, creating and maintaining a calendar of events and adding other information to our website, including maintaining updated volunteer profiles.
