Social Media Co-ordinator (volunteer)

Employment Type: Volunteer

It Gets Better UK envisions a world where all LGBTQ+ youth are free to live equally and know their
worthiness and power as individuals. We have a presence at Prides across the UK, all powered by volunteers!

Help out for one day this summer (or more!) and help us make a difference for young LGBTQ+ people across the UK. 

At Pride, we share positive stories from members of the LGBTQ+ community. We encourage attendees
to share their story, message to their younger self, or message of support. The conversations we have
are uplifting and often emotional. Here’s last year’s highlights reel!

We’re looking for Pride Helpers for the following events:

  • Brighton and Hove, 3-4 August
  • Bristol, 13 July (TBC)
  • Cambridge, 15 June
  • Edinburgh, 22 June (TBC)
  • London, 29 June
  • Trans+ Pride London, 27 July 
  • Black Pride London, 11 August (TBC)
  • Walsall, 24 August (TBC)

What will I be doing?
• Choose one or more Pride events which you commit to attending with us.
• Help set up and tidy up stand at beginning/end of event.
• Welcome people to the stall, invite them to learn about stories from others in the community, and
share their own stories.
• Support fundraising and raising awareness with our branded badges.
• Engage event participants in positive messaging opportunities and story-collecting via our
whiteboards: “a message to my younger self”.
• Get photo consent from participants so that we can share their messages on our platforms.
• Help produce video messages, recording participants’ stories of hope.
• Promote volunteering roles within It Gets Better and let people know to how to get involved.
