Online Volunteers

Deptford X is looking for online volunteers to assist us with Support Network. Ideally volunteers will be available on and around the session dates stated on our website and have an interest in the subjects/speakers featured.

Volunteers will sit in on the session and help support the smooth running of the online sessions.

If this sounds of interest please drop Sarah a line on admin@deptfordx.org
