Become a Volunteer Queen

The key strength of the Adventure Queen community is that it is shaped by the women who are a part of it. So far, we already have a team of over 30 Queens – helping to organise wild camps and lead events, but as we grow and (in the words of captain Scott) “We Jusss donnn’t haveee the poowweeer!!” to do it all. So we’re on the hunt for new recruits.

As we’re a non-profit, these are volunteer roles – undertaken for the very same reason we (McNuff and Framps) started Adventure Queens – a sheer love of getting women outdoors and kicking ass.

If you’re keen to be a part of something magical, take a sneaky peek at the volunteer roles below. Ideally you’d be able to do the role for at least 6 months but you can do it forever if you like. We wouldn’t mind that at all.

If one on these roles floats your adventure boat, give us a holler at hello@adventurequeens.co.uk and tell us a little bit about you.

FACEBOOK QUEEN 

The AQ Facebook (main) group is the main space for the community in the UK and beyond, to share, support and celebrate each other. It’s become such a magical space and it wouldn’t be what it is without everyone contributing like they do. Or possible without the amazing Volunteer Queens that manage it (aka our Facebook Queens). As the community keeps growing, we need more Facebook Queens to help manage the group!

As a Facebook Queen you would:

      • Approve new wild women who want to join the AQ community
      • Check everyone is behaving and keeping their posts within the community guidelines. This means being kind and respectful to each other, no fundraising/advertising posts or any posts whereby there’s business or personal financial profiting
      • Send a welcome message, reply to comments and share any thoughts and tips, whenever possible

Skills needed: Comfortable on Facebook, enjoy working in a group, love of people and the outdoors.

Time needed per week: 1-2 hours.

INSTAGRAM QUEEN 

In March ’18, we launched @adventurequeensuk (aka our Instagram channel) and since then, have shared 100s of kick ass stories from the community. We want to keep sharing more stories, and help inspire others to get out and kick ass too. So we need more Insta Queens!

As an Insta Queen you would:

  • Keep an eagle eye out on our Facebook pages and AQ Instagram followers for any cool stories of what women in the community are up to
  • Liaise with women in the community to feature them
  • Share women’s adventure-tastic stories on Instagram, in posts and stories

INSTAGRAM STORY QUEEN (different to above – you’d be the one being featured!)

We’re on the hunt for 10 x Story Queens to share their everyday adventures and those further afield with our Instagram followers. If you’re up for helping us spread the Adventure Queen love of the outdoors far and wide, then read more here!

Time needed per week: Have a spare 30 mins each week to give over to sitting on the couch and uploading your stories, post-adventure. Or doing it on the run!

CHIEF QUEEN (LOCAL FACEBOOK GROUPS)

The local groups are a way for the community to connect with wild women in their local area – meet up and explore together, share favourite places and support each other… helping support the community in their quest for outdoor adventures.

    • Send a welcome message to any newbies
    • Reply to comments and share any thoughts and tips whenever possible – keeping the group engaged and feeling part of the local group – and organising any meet-ups, if you’d like
