About This Project

TNKR Volunteer Representatives and Leaders

Are you ready to commit to TNKR long-term? Would you like to be recognized as a representative on TNKR’s Leadership Team? You can also develop your own leadership plan within TNKR, so you can be recognized as someone who has helped develop an organization helping North Korean refugees.

TNKR Representative

We are lucky to have many volunteers join TNKR. Some have even gotten actively involved in activities beyond tutoring or coaching. We would now like to institutionalize this, so that volunteers can build their careers and skills while they help TNKR become a sustainable organization. To start on the path to becoming a TNKR representative, get involved with at least three main TNKR activities.

* Tutoring or coaching (or another activity such as translation, social media, graphic design)
* Fundraising
* Being an ambassador by regularly attending and publicizing meetings, sharing links on social media, recruiting other volunteers.

TNKR Team Leader

Take on a leadership role within TNKR, leading a team focused on a particular activity. These volunteers will engage in all of the activities expected of Representatives, plus they will take on long-term leadership of a TNKR project or activity.

TNKR needs energetic and ambitious volunteers who are willing to commit long-term to the organization, treating it as a priority rather than an option. If you are already volunteering with TNKR and want to get more deeply involved, then contact TNKR co-founder Casey Lartigue (CJL@alumni.harvard.edu) to get on the TNKR Team Leadership path.

Apply here then contact TNKR co-founder Casey Lartigue for a discussion so we can develop your leadership plan in TNKR. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfBnKrA9cP49NiJF41k-HlamKvLTfk8uXvAQhGIWrGZ_6FbfQ/viewform
