President, Treasurer, Secretary and Ordinary Committee member roles

 Future Warriors Project is looking for new vibrant and committed management committee members to embrace our vision and make a difference to the Maasai people of Tanzania. 

We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds who are based in Brisbane and can commit between 2 and 12 hours per month (depending on the role), on average for at least 12 months. Full committee meetings are held every three months on a Sunday afternoon. In addition, Office bearer roles (President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary) meet every month either virtually to discuss governance, strategy, reporting and the financial situation of FWP, while our other committee members will meet with Sianga Kuyan (founder and volunteer CEO), to discuss other activties such as volunteers, fundraising, marketing and communications. Committee members also need to be available as needed over email, phone and/or skype.

We are looking for people who can embrace Future Warriors Project's vision and work as part of an organisation that is run by volunteers and time poor - this means we don't have the same amount of structure and management as other organisations. It also means our Management Committee is our backbone and needs to run continuously, so we ask all people who are interested - can you dedicate your time and energy to us, in spite of the commitments in your life? In return for your dedication, you will meet great people, be able to learn the ropes of governing a not-for-profit, while playing a vital role in an organisation that makes a real difference. 

On a personal level, this is what we are looking for:

  • capacity to commit time to us for at least 12 months, on top of an already busy schedule
  • people who are supportive of our Maasai founder's vision, knowledge and connection with local communities
  • patience and flexibility
  • empathy, good listening skills and the ability to work effectively with others
  • drive, and the ability to get on with agreed priorities with minimal guidance
  • project management and leadership skills
  • people with a strong interest in development work, social justice, Africa, Tanzania, and/or Maasai, who are open to understanding the complexities of working in remote settings with traditional minority cultures in developing countries
