New initiatives at Cph Volunteers

The Ambassador Group is part of the National Strategy-project aiming to expand out base of national members to better fulfill our goal of a 50/50 mix of national and international members when participating at an event. As an Ambassador you will contribute by helping to spread the word about Cph Volunteers at your place of study as well as making volunteer work a focus.
93 sign-ups for the year’s first event
In connection with the Copenhagen Fashion Festival, which will begin the 29 January, Cph Volunteers has 93 volunteers on the street handing out programs. We are happy about the great commitment, and we wish you all a good time!
New faces at Cph Volunteers
On the 1th of February two new colleagues will join our office at Cph Volunteers. Our new intern Nanna Elming will be working with member surveys and statistics in connection with the coming budget negotiations. Our new co-worker Jane Marco will be working on a new strategy for recruitment and retention of national members, and general development and fundraising.
We welcome them both and are looking forward to working with them.
Status of 2012
In 2011, Cph Volunteers have contributed to 34 events with 955 volunteers.
Besides that, 125 members have participated in 6 courses in first aid and conflict resolution, and among 570 members have participated in our 9 social member events. Furthermore, around 450 people have participated in our lectures about the Danish democracy, where also non-members were invited.
The number of members has increased from 1.542 to 2.016 members in 2012, and we are very pleased that this number continues to increase.
This year has been very exciting and busy, and we are looking forward to a new year, which hopefully will be just as interesting.
We are looking forward to see you all in 2013!
