Requirement Details

SMC supports different volunteer styles with many transformative opportunities. 

Email info@sustainablemontpelier.org to explore what transformative volunteer experience works for you! 

SMC provides a framework for shared power in organizational settings. It allows us to relate as equals by giving everyone a voice. It can help reconfigure power by distributing it more horizontally, and also healing our relationship to power.

We commit to “walking our talk” by:
 
 
Externally: Modeling shared power where it’s most needed
 
Making access to SMC’s Coalitions and Events affordable and accessible with diverse strategies such as sliding scales, replicable materials, creative commons license, translations, child care, etc.
 
Intentionally prioritize our allies: working with and for people and organizations that are focused on the redistribution of power, particularly those currently most negatively impacted by systems of oppression
 
 
Internally: Cultivating our ability to share power among members
 
Including a liberation perspective in the development of Coalitions, Volunteers and  Programs  
Addressing potential barriers that would discourage anyone from fully participating as members  
Centering the quality of connection among our members as our source of creativity and power with/power within
 
Supporting members to address and transcend internalized oppression
 
Asking for help: looking beyond our organization for support and challenge in strengthening our social justice commitment
