Volunteer with Us

Rumpus is a local skill-sharing non-profit that strives to build a resourceful, creative and sustainable community in Wollongong. Embracing the themes of creativity, sustainability and D.I.Y to curate and deliver fun, affordable classes in vibrant spaces and venues.

We find local talented people with a skill to share and design a class around their skill. Rumpus also provides a platform for local artists, creatives, practitioners and experts to promote themselves in the local community.

Volunteers are at the heart of our Skillshare program, supporting teachers and community members and they come together to share and learn new skills.

Purpose of Position:

To assist with the delivery of Rumpus skillshare classes. Primary tasks and responsibilities:

  • Attend Rumpus classes and assist with set up
  • Checking off the attendance list
  • Greeting participants, preparing materials
  • Introducing the class
  • Requesting feedback from students
  • Taking photos (pics to be sent to Sarah during or after the class)
  • Pack down and clean up.

Time Commitment: Approximately one class per month (2-6 hours per month)

On many occasions, the role of the Rumpus representative at classes is to ‘hold the space’ – set the tone, energy and atmosphere, particularly if the teacher is quiet, nervous and class participants arrive unsure of what is about to proceed.

We aim for classes to be light-hearted, fun, energising and playful. By bringing that confident energy to the space it helps others come along for the ride!

Classes occur on average 4-8 times a month and are usually on weekends or weeknights.
