Resource Alliance and IoF Scotland are both looking for volunteer helpers for this summer.

Resource Alliance is seeking 20 session leaders for IFC 2019, which takes place in the Netherlands on 15-18 October.  These are the first point of contact for speakers if they require any assistance before, during or after their session.

It is asking people to apply by 22 June 2019.
