Become a volunteer
PICUM is always looking for Volunteers!
PICUM’s secretariat has a constantly growing network and wide range of activities. We therefore rely on committed volunteers to support our work from home. Volunteers decide themselves when and how much of their time they can dedicate to PICUM.
Key activities which volunteers support are:
• Translations: if you are a native speaker of French, Dutch, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Czech, Polish or another European language and your knowledge of English is excellent (C1), or if you already have professional translation experience, you may support us as volunteer translator.
Volunteers only translate into their native language and usually translate sections of newsletters, statements and other key documents. Longer documents are generally divided among several volunteers.
• News writing: if you have a good knowledge of the current debate on irregular migration in your country, you follow debates in the media and you have very good English writing skills (C1) or you are maybe studying journalism and would like to further train your writing skills, you may want to help summarise news for our newsletter.
• Video/animation: If you make videos or create video animations, we would be happy to see with you if you may do a project to visually support PICUM’s work and help reach new audiences.
• Design: If you are experienced in creating graphs and charts or designing posters and other publishing material, we would be happy to discuss how you can contribute these skills to our work.
• Photography: PICUM regularly needs strong images to support its work. Photos are used for reports, flyers, on the website and shared on social media. If you enjoy taking photos and you have access to migrant communities, service provision etc. and wish to see your photos published, you may send them to us. Please be aware that we need to be sure to have the right to publish the photos.
• Research: If you are a researcher in the field of undocumented migrants, we would be happy to hear more about your research and to see if there are possibilities for cooperation.
Depending on your personal skills and interests, you are welcome to also suggest other ways in which you think you can support undocumented migrants’ rights.
If you are interested in helping us promote the rights of undocumented migrants in the above mentioned ways or in any other way, please sign up below.
We look forward to working with you!
