Some Questions You May Have
1. What do I wear?
Depending on what type of event it is, you should wear something comfortable and presentable. Ask the organisation if they have specific requirements or any clothing they would like you to wear.
- For a more formal event, black clothing and closed shoes – or your Sunday clothing – are good options. A school uniform works too if you are really unsure.
- For a less formal, outdoors or sporty event, wear something comfortable that you can run around in.
When you’re not sure – wear black.
Always remember that as an Ambassador you are representing yourself, the organisation whose event you’re hosting, as well as The Social Collective.
2. What about transport and food?
Unless you have organised snacks and transport with the venue – or acquired a sponsor for this – you will need to organise food and transport to the event for yourself. You are not expected to provide food or transport for all participants.
If it is a longer event and you would like food to be provided, speak to the venue. Community centres, schools and faith-based centres usually have the facility for catering, and they may have a budget for food – especially if your event is going to help them out.
Make sure you communicate the arrangement to your participants who count in 1 or 2 days before the event. You don’t want people to arrive hungry or late!
Try this email or phone call to ask about food and/or transport:
3. When do I need to complete the report by?
You will receive an automatic email the day after your event to remind you to complete the report. You will need to complete it and submit it for approval no later than 2 days after the event, so please make sure you have enough data or access to a computer and internet to do this.
