We are on the lookout for new volunteers interested in making creative work themed around mental health topics for a readership of 18-25 year-olds.
We particularly need more volunteers creating visual work that translates well to screen; this opportunity may suit amateur or beginner illustrators, photographers, cartoonists and graphic design enthusiasts who believe in feminism, creativity, social enterprise initiatives and would like to share their work and become part of a community supporting and forging positive social change.
About Fearless Femme:
Fearless Femme is a social enterprise based in Scotland and it’s taking a sledgehammer to the systemic problems around recognising and constructively addressing mental ill-health, particularly among young female and non-binary people.
Fearless Femme is mostly commonly met through our website which speaks directly to our target audience, letting them know they are not alone and that it’s ok to be exactly themselves. We also produce a digital magazine for subscribers on a not-for-profit basis as well as conducting research on mental health challenges and policies to define how the social context around mental health for young people can be improved. Written, designed, organised and edited by a part-time team of people in different stages of being affected by and recovering from mental illness, Fearless Femme has struck a chord (and a nerve) with those in society who care deeply about the impact of poor mental health.
What we are looking for:
This is an opportunity for young people who are interested in social causes, specifically mental health affecting young people.
Benefits of volunteering with Fearless Femme:
You will gain experience in working with a team empowering young women and people identifying as non-binary to overcome mental health problems through breaking down mental-health stigma and offering positive connections and resilience in its place. You will also be able to enhance your knowledge of the creative arts and your talent, and you will join a creative community connected for a social purpose with opportunities to explore new connections and collaborations with other creatives. Your creative work will be showcased to up to 10,000 website viewers monthly and you will gain experience with developing ideas, the editing process and taking active part in the discourse around mental health, publishing and equality topics, all in a supportive, nurturing context.
Your volunteering period starts and ends when you wish. Fearless Femme doesn’t stipulate any minimum period or time for volunteering with us.
