We're looking for makesense Iloilo Ambassadors!

We’re looking for Makesense Iloilo Ambassadors! Are you up for it?

makesense brings together and supports engaged citizens, passionate entrepreneurs and forward-looking organizations to collectively tackle today’s social and environmental issues.

Makesense is present in the Philippines for 4 years now. Thanks to our community of 50 volunteers in 6 cities of the Philippines and our fulltime team based in Manila, we engaged in real life 3,000 people in social innovation activities, supported the creation of 50 social enterprises and accelerated the launching of 6 social enterprises.

We have Makesense Hotspots and Ambassadors in several cities around the Philippines, including Metro Manila, Cebu, Baguio, Lipa, Cavite, and now we are expanding to Iloilo! Each hotspot runs its own events, campaigns, and specific mobilizations through the creativity and proactivity of its ambassadors and volunteers.

The makesesense ambassadors will be the leaders of the hotspot, and are seen as coordinators and mobilization heads! Ambassadors lead, coordinate, and sustain their hotspots through various makesense events, campaigns, and projects. They will oversee mobilizations in their city, with the support of the makesense full-time team.

Is this ambassadorship for you?

More than any specific skillset, we are most of all looking for individuals passionate about –  and who believe in – the power of citizen engagement, community building, and social entrepreneurship!

However, these are other skills and qualities that would help in becoming a strong makesense ambassador:

  • You’re passionate about social entrepreneurship and want to be part of the change
  • You love learning and are excited to test, share, and learn constantly
  • Managing a project or organizing an event is something you have some level of experience in or is something you’re interested in
  • Have the time, motivation, and commitment for makesense related activities
  • Loves to network and exchange ideas with like-minded people!
  • Possess a sense of ownership to the makesense mission and to their hub
  • Dedicated to sustaining and growing the hub (recruitment)

We’re excited to read your application form!

Kindly reserve your September 14, 2018 for training and team building and September 15, 2018 for the launch event of Makesense Iloilo. For any questions, please email the Country Community Developer, Pepper at patricia@makesense.org.

Deadline of applications on August 24, 2018!

This position is VOLUNTARY and not full-time. You will be joining a vibrant community of friendly and passionate individuals in the Philippines and around the world. Makesense Ambassadors receive support from the Makesense full-time team through tools, training, networking, and skills development. As with all Makesense Ambassadors, there will be no monetary compensation.
