Did you know that TreeSisters has a network of amazing volunteers who help nourish the mission by carrying out essential tasks that expand on what we can offer to our network? If you ever wanted to give your time and energy to TreeSisters we could use your talents now. We have some exciting opportunities available and would love to have you join us.

TreeSisters is a network lead organisation. Our aim is to reforest the tropics through feminine nature based leadership, shifting humanity from being a consumer and destroyer species into a restorer species. Our vision is vast and pressing; we can only realise it if as a global network working together. Through our member donations we currently plant over 2 million trees a year in the tropics, but we want and need to do more. We can only do this by gathering in the skills, gifts and dedication of our network.

TreeSisters is a registered charity with a small staff team, therefore we are completely reliant on the dedication of volunteers to achieve our goals. As an organisation we are so fortunate to have an amazing team of volunteers who are involved in every aspect of our work. As our work continues to grow, expand and gain momentum, we now need to invite more volunteers into our network to help us make our goals a reality.

There are some really exciting roles opening up, opportunities for you to give your unique gifts in a way that most suits you.

We need people to get involved in everything from:

  • Mentoring women to setup local tree planting initiatives
  • Supporting the inner work that women engage in at TreeSisters
  • Behind the scenes roles in admin
  • Setting up funding partnerships with other organisations
  • Research roles looking more deeply at the state of forests across our planet

And lots more!

We are also interested in people who want to offer skills and time in other areas that we haven't listed. If you have other ideas for how you would like to offer your gifts please let us know.

We recognise that giving of your time and skills is the most precious gift that you can offer and at TreeSisters we are committed to making sure that volunteering supports your personal growth and development. We give back to our volunteers through guided meditations, regular opportunities to meet with Clare (our CEO and Founder) and invitations into intimate, supportive groups of women who share the TreeSisters vision and also want to dive deeper into making it a reality.

Below is a list of the volunteer opportunities that we have available, please take a look at the role descriptions and we invite you to fill out the application form at the bottom of this blog.
