Volunteering with PURE

 

The PURE volunteer organization does the day-to-day work of maintaining the community and furthering the Community Purpose.  We have no paid staff.

When we say PURE is “by the players, for the players,” we mean it — PURE volunteers are community members just like you! Some are PURE veterans, and others are newcomers diving right in to leadership roles. Volunteers are selected based on their skills, commitment, and the community’s current needs.

“I want to give back to the community, and I want to help others have the same experience I did.”  You’ll often hear this from current and aspiring volunteers when they’re asked what inspires them about volunteering.  PURE could not exist without their generosity.

 

Volunteering is one of the three pillars of the PURE Awards program.

PURE Awards recognize those who support the PURE community.  To learn more, click here.

How to Volunteer

PURE could not exist without volunteers.  But volunteering is not just a way of helping support and sustain the community — it’s a way of participating at a deeper level.  If you choose to volunteer, you get the opportunity to see the inner workings of an organized gaming community, and to more closely connect and collaborate with others who are passionate about the same thing you are:  awesome social gaming.

Volunteers are selected to join the organization based on their enthusiasm, commitment, and skills.   These are assessed based on written applications, video interviews, and any prior interaction.

This page focuses on non-leadership volunteer positions. If you are interested in learning about leadership positions, go to our Leadership Roles page instead!

Applying to Volunteer

  1. Find an opening

    We regularly announce recruiting opportunities, so keep your eyes open.  If you don’t see an opening, but are highly excited, skilled, and committed, feel free to reach out to one of our volunteer leads!  We always want to talk to strong volunteer candidates.

  2. Assess Your Availability

    For most volunteer roles, we look for an average of 3+ hours/week.  Some weeks may be more, some weeks none at all; that’s just an average.  For some teams, the requirements may be different — ask the recruiting Lead if you’re unsure.

  3. Application

    Fill out an application for the role.  This should be linked from the announcement.  The recruiting lead for the team should review your application and get back to you within a few days.

  4. Discussion

    If everything seems to be a fit from reading your application, the recruiting lead will contact you to schedule a time for video discussion to talk about the role further.  (It’s best if you have a webcam, but if you don’t, that’s OK.)

    The discussion is an opportunity for you and the lead to get to know each other, and get a shared sense of whether working together will be fun, effective, and an all-around good fit.  This is different from an “interview” in that it is a two-way street.  We think that volunteering should be fun for everyone involved, and having a discussion beforehand helps insure that.

  5. Decision

    You and the recruiting Lead will both take some time to decide whether you feel you and the volunteer role are well-suited for each other.  If so, you’ll join the team!
