The Period Place

Estimated Time: 6 - 8 Hours Over 1 - 1 Days

We are after energetic, personable volunteers to help us bring The Period Place Boutique Market to life. We're making history with NZ's first ever period market! This market is a safe space to learn about menstruation and different products on the market - it's aimed at anyone who gets a period, and everyone around them - parents, kids, teens, you name it! There will be something there for you. You need to be comfortable moving around on your own and showing initiative - we need people who can help set up 12 trestle tables + pack them down, provide direction to people out on the street where to go (the market is inside Grey Lynn Community Centre), assist at the main door, manage the donations area etc. General event volunteer things.
