Dates-n-Mates members are offered volunteering opportunities with the project, to help shape and guide the project while developing their own independence and skills.
Members can get involved as a friendly face and earn champion points. As a friendly face, they would welcome and support new members attending events. Other roles and tasks may include; doing a speech at an event, helping lead activities or gathering and sharing feedback. Members can gain points for volunteering, with the person with the most points being crowned champion each year.
