So you think you want to Volunteer right?
We have created a list of information that is essential for you to know before you apply and are accepted to be part of the team. It is important for us that you know what is expected of you, so that you understand exactly how you fit into the bigger picture.
HERE TO HELP
Volunteering means you have a desire to help. If you are volunteering to get access to Vianna, or special status then maybe volunteering is not for you. Volunteering is about helping others, not getting personal gain or advantage.
You should have a strong ability to be on time. If you are late then you let the rest of the team down who might rely on your help to get something done. Being late is not good, so if you are always late, are you sure?
FRIENDLY WITH EVERYONE
Part of being a volunteer means you do your best to smile and be friendly all the time. No matter how rude someone might be, you need to keep calm and smile. Not everyone has the same day as you so some could be in a really tough position in life!
This is the first time Vianna is visiting Moscow, so we want to make sure the opportunities are given to Muscovites. If someone needs to get somewhere or ask directions, then if you are from Moscow you will know where to go and how to get around. Finding a new place should be easy, hassle free and without complications.
WANTING TO TEACH
Being a volunteer also means that you have a desire to teach. You wont be teaching during the events, but you will be setting an example to others, especially those who are not ThetaHealers yet. If you are a certified Instructor or you will be completing your Instructors certification in Janaury then volunteering gives you another chance to learn about other soft skills you will need as an Instructor.
ABLE TO COMMUNICATE
The hardest challenge is being able to communicate effectively. So being able to be strong and assertive without being rude or obnoxious is a definite skill you need. Softer skills include being able to persuade someone to change their point of view without them losing what they want. And of course, multi-language skills definitely is a plus!
How do we recruit volunteers
We don’t live in Moscow but we do travel to Moscow for business very often. Here is how we decide on who to bring into the team :
In person meeting
The first step is for us to meet in person, so that we get a feel for each other. You need to know who we are and how we operate, and we need to assess you as a person.
Completion of a simple form
We will send you a link to a form that we would like you to complete. As a volunteer there are specific things that you will be asked to read and accept (confidentiality agreement, event terms and conditions agreement etc.)
We decide based on merit and the skills you have
Once we have the completed form, we assess the information you have provided to us. Based on what you tell us, and how the in person meeting went, we make our decision.
When you are accepted what is next
Remember you are part of a team, so planning is essential to make sure that we use your skills in the right areas.
YOU ARE NOT PAID AS A VOLUNTEER
Volunteering is unpaid work.
We will however waive (not charge you) for entrance to the event you help at. This means you also get to take part and listen, and share, unless you are needed to help somewhere duing the event.
WE WILL CONTACT YOU AND GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION
Once accepted we will let you know, and send you more information via email etc. We will let you know addresses, times, and anything else you need to know.
There will be a meeting at some stage before each event (normally a day or two before) which we hope to do online.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY
We would love to have your friends and family join us, however we need to honour those who have paid for their tickets, and also the instructions from THInK. If you want to invite someone to come as your guest, they will still be required to pay. Remember that space is limited at all the ThetaHealing Day and ThetaHealing Evening events.
SET YOUR CALENDAR
Once we send you a confirmation you can set your calendar for the date we agreed with you. Remember you are part of a team, so if you can not make it, the least you can do is let us know in advance. What will your friends and colleagues think if you drop everyone at the last minute?
WE WILL DO OUR BEST
Those who have paid for the GOLD tickets will be given the opportunity to meet with Vianna for the book signing and personal photo. We have to give them preference. Anyone else will have to wait for that to finish, and there are no promises that Vianna will be able to sign more books or have more photos taken with people.
