Hi everyone, view the message below in regards to the volunteer opportunities available for the non-profit group Friends of Nepal. If you are interested you can contact Feli directly on felicia.singkang@gmail.com with “Cultural night reference” in the subject line. Thanks.

I am involve with an NGO called Friends of Nepal, if you look on my facebook group you will be able to find the group there. We are going to have our 2nd Annual Cultural Night on the 25th of October 2008 and we are looking for volunteers to help for the night. The volunteers will help out with the serving of the food and cleaning. So basically we are looking for volunteers for Waitstaff and also kitchen hands. We are looking for 15 volunteers for the night.

The volunteers will have a free meal (ticket price is $40.00) and a cert for all their help on the night. Transportation is not a problem. We will be able to pick the volunteers up and send them back after the night.

Let me know if you need more details or if anyone is interested in going to the night.

Thank you so much for your help.

And this time its going to be a whole lot better!

Proposals invited:
International Students Council Board have decided to open up the organisational team to every student at ECU to increase professionalism of the event. If you have a plan in mind on how to run the MCW event, you and a friend could get-together, form a team, develop a strategy and submit your proposals to ISC for consideration.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to get hands-on experience in organising and running events professionally, build your portfolio, or simply, get to be part of a great multicultural environment!

The Event:
Multicultural Week is an annual event organised all around Australia by the respective International Student Council equivalents at all universities. MCW aims to highlight the multicutural nature of Australia in its traditional week long string of events which usually take place during the first two weeks of October. In the past, ISC has collaborated with African Students Association to include the Cup of Nations Soccer Tournament with MCW as well. Visit http://ecumcw.wordpress.com for furthur information.

All proposals will be reviewed by the ISC Board and panel of judges consisting of industry body experts, previous event advisors and relevant ECU Staff.

The theme for this year’s Multicultural Week is “Home is…”
The theme is open to intepretation by the teams.
Go creative:
..but be realistic at the same time. MCW in the past have been run with budgets that rely heavily on acquiring sponsorship support. Proposals from teams must include:

  • Summary
  • Team stucture
  • The Event Concept – relevance to ISC
  • Key messages/objectives of the event
  • The estimated budget
  • Sponsorship strategy
  • Event timeline
  • Team recruitment process (state how you will recruit more members and volunteers for the crew)

Teams must read and accept the terms and conditions for submission of proposals.


  • Expressions of interest (state that you are interested in organising MCW) must be sent to ecuisc@ecu.edu.au by Friday June 20, 9pm.
  • Proposals must be submitted to ecuisc@ecu.edu.au no later than Friday June 27th 9pm.
