The easiest way to volunteer with Babywearing International is to contact your local chapter directly about volunteer opportunities in your community. However, we have a number of volunteer opportunities available with Babywearing International directly, working with the parent organization to benefit all chapters. BWI committee service may, with the approval of the Committee Chair and your Higher Accreditation Coordinator, be used to fulfill the requirement for an ABE or MBE project.

Facebook Group Moderator(s): Over 70% of chapter volunteers visit the BWI CV Facebook group at least once a week. The Facebook group was developed as a place for CVs to exchange information and receive peer-to-peer support via a platform that is familiar to most of our volunteers. The BWI Social Media committee is looking for group moderators who are interested in cultivating a positive, helpful environment with the Facebook group while helping to direct CVs to appropriate resources. Facebook group moderators will be tasked with developing rules, directing chapter volunteers to appropriate contacts and resources, and facilitating group conversations, and brainstorming, while creating a safe and productive environment for all. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals who are passionate about BWI’s peer-to-peer support structure, familiar with our organizational structure, knowledgeable about social justice, and prepared to help move our Facebook group forward. This position typically requires 5 hours of activity per week on our Facebook group.
Facebook Public Page Moderator(s): This position would be charged with helping to schedule content created by a volunteer advertising professional, help to create additional content, share similar pages/missions, answer public questions, interact with followers, and manage messages sent to the page. This position is housed under the social media committee.
