HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Magenta Project Volunteer Programme is an exciting opportunity to be a part of our organisation, getting actively involved in supporting our work and making more happen

As a TMP Volunteer you will help to deliver our mission of ‘Accelerating women to the top of sailing’. You will hear first about any opportunities to get involved with our projects and events and any volunteering roles that become available

To become a TMP Volunteer complete our Volunteer Application Form providing us with your contact details, the role(s) you are interested in and a bit of background about yourself.

What you will get from being a TMP volunteer
  • New friends – meet some great people!
  • Satisfaction from knowing you are making sailing a more diverse sport
  • A chance to share your enthusiasm, creativity and knowledge with us
  • The opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in a fun environment
  • A positive feeling - you will be making a difference
  • Something for your career or sailing CV (if you need it!)
Event and activities roles

If you are interested in our organised activities and events, which may be on-water training and sailing activities or supporting our onshore training and fundraising events, these volunteering roles are for you. Examples of roles include:

  • Event assistants
  • Event social media/communication assistants
  • Event photographers

Your commitment will be time limited, related to a specific activity and event, though may also include some pre and post event planning and delivery  

Once you sign up for an event based role we will send you information whenever we  are running an activity or event and need volunteers. This may only be a couple of times a year initially.
