We all get by with a little help from our friends, but sometimes there’s a little extra help needed! The Peer Rangers provide emotional support on the Paddock & they (might) want you!
Do you want to get creative in supporting and encouraging respectful relationships of all kinds on the Paddock? Do you think you could help update policies and procedures, train an awesome team of Rangers and PEER's, drive a targeted awareness campaign, create posters and, most importantly, lend an ear when an ear is needed most? (Less commitment than Van Gogh required). This is a program, policy and engagement role where you will get your hands dirty!
LadySparkles - Team Lead of Peer Rangers shared some of her most memorable moments in the role: "Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make a difference. You might just have the privilege of giving the exact thing someone needs at the exact time they need it".
LadySparkles is searching for the perfect 2IC - someone to plan for the future with, someone with experience in a helping profession (i.e. counselling / crisis intervention / sexual assault counselling / festival experience such as Nest at Rainbow or Mental Health Branch at Burning Man) who is passionate about building a safe and supportive community into our future. Time commitments will fluctuate, but weekly contact generally at a minimum a few months leading up to the event.
