Earthlink NTU Volunteer Members Scheme (AY 21/22)

Earthlink NTU will be opening ad hoc volunteering opportunities where NTU students and staff not part of Earthlink’s committees can contribute and volunteer for Earthlink NTU’s events, activities, and projects to expand accessibility of environmental issues and communities and create more capacity and support for our work.

Eligibility

· All NTU students (undergraduate/postgraduate) and staff are eligible to participate in this scheme.

· Earthlink members will be given priority over non-Earthlink members.

Volunteering opportunities

· Volunteering opportunities will be ad hoc and subject to availability and practicability of engaging volunteers, and support required for Earthlink’s projects/activities.

· Volunteering opportunities will be proposed and hosted by various Earthlink’s subcommittees.

Benefits structure

· Volunteers will receive preferential and priority access to Earthlink’s events and activities, similar to Earthlink’s members.

· For volunteers whom a non-academic transcript is applicable, Earthlink NTU will ensure their specific contributions as volunteers as recorded.

· For volunteers whom hall/student life points are applicable, Earthlink NTU will award student life points to volunteers in recognition of their efforts and contributions at the end of the academic year.

· The point allocation system is as follows:

Volunteer participation/contribution

Hall/ Student life points awarded

Volunteering on any 3 instances (activities/projects/events)[1]

OR

Volunteering a total approximate time contribution of 10 hours or more over the academic year

3



[1] Examples of one instance includes volunteering for a few hours at an Earthlink event/booth engaging NTU students, volunteering professional services (photography/design/emceeing/hosting a workshop) for a few hours, etc.

Earthlink NTU reserves the right to vary or withhold benefits as deemed necessary (e.g., in case of volunteers that do not contribute, etc.). All outcomes will be clearly communicated to all relevant parties.

Scheme administration

·        Volunteering opportunities, when made available, will be publicized on

a.      Earthlink’s website,

b.     Instagram account,

c.      monthly newsletter,

d.      and communicated to all Earthlink members via email sent by the Honorary General Secretary (HGS).

·         The scheme will be jointly administrated by the subcommittee’s leadership (Director/Deputy Director/Chairperson/Co-Director) (hereafter referred to as “the subcommittee”) under which the opportunity is offered, and the HGS.

a.       The subcommittee will be responsible and liable for onboarding, managing, tracking volunteer contributions, working with volunteers, and the welfare of volunteers.

b.      The HGS is responsible and liable for keeping an updated database of all volunteers and all volunteering activity under this scheme, allocating hall/student life points accordingly at the end of each Academic Year, as well as ensuring contributions are recorded in the non-academic transcript of volunteers wherever applicable.

·         Process of opening a volunteering opportunity

a.       When deciding to open a volunteering opportunity, the subcommittee should be clear about expectations and roles of volunteers, a target number of volunteers to recruit, an approximate time commitment over the academic year, and other relevant details.

b.      Once the subcommittee has decided on opening an opportunity, it should be proposed to their respective Vice-President to receive endorsement.

c.       Once endorsed, the subcommittee should notify the HGS, and pass publicity materials to both the HGS and the Publicity & Publications subcommittee for advertisement via the abovementioned four channels. There is no fixed recruitment platform for volunteers, and the subcommittee can employ whatever platform is most suitable.

d.      Once volunteers are recruited, the subcommittee should inform the HGS, and the HGS should collect the volunteers’ relevant details.

e.      At the end of the volunteering stint, the subcommittee should update the HGS on the contributions of each volunteer.

·         Avenues of recourse for volunteers

a.       In case of any disputes, difficulties, or challenges faced while volunteering where volunteers are unable to or is uncomfortable with resolving the issue directly with the subcommittee volunteers are encouraged to approach any Earthlink NTU Executive Committee member for assistance.
