The Outreach Team
Outreach is dedicated to making sure that actions and events are supported by outreach to the public and specific audiences. We do this by training volunteers to perform outreach, producing flyers, and making outreach material available to the movement.

The Team and Current Situation
We are a small team, but growing. We're looking to expand the scope of work for the team to include different types of outreach and mobilisation. This is being worked out currently. If you're interested in coordinating outreach, we can discuss the changes with you.
As per the usual ways that XR teams works everyone involved in the work gets a full say on everything - so you will too - and we will look to add more people to the team with specific remits, or skills, as the development of future plans progresses.

Training Coordinator

We need someone to help us to organise regular Outreach training, to make sure our pool of outreach volunteers are upskilled and ready to be effective ambassadors for XR on the street. We have someone who runs the training itself, but we just need someone to be a part of our team to organise the admin of the trainings and promote them as widely as possible!

Outreach training is provided to the movement.


  • Organise training sessions at appropriate times to meet the needs of volunteers.
  • Ensure any training content reflects current ways of working and best practice.
  • Recruit and coordinate volunteers to facilitate training where necessary.
