Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.
DanceSafe implements a 3- Tier Community Engagement Model for volunteers. All volunteers begin in our Official Promotion and Support Team, the DanceSafe Visionaries.
What is the Visionary Program?
Have you always wanted to get involved with DanceSafe? Well here is your chance! We’re excited to announce the launch of the “Visionaries”, DanceSafe’s official promotion and support team. DanceSafe Visionaries will have the opportunity to get involved in pushing the harm reduction movement forward, both online and within the electronic music community. In return, Visionaries will receive FREE DanceSafe swag and merchandise.
What to Expect as a Visionary Volunteer?
Visionaries will be an integral part of visualizing and materializing the future of DanceSafe. Being part of theVisionaries, is a guaranteed a sense of accomplishment, participating in a program that will shape and mobilize our community. We will have weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly chances to spread the DanceSafe harm reduction message online and in ‘real life’, and by doing so accumulate points redeemable for everything from custom DanceSafe Visionary pins to free testing kits! Once you become part of Visionaries, you will have the opportunity to DanceSafe’s “Party Proper” Volunteer Training Program which will enable you to staff booths at events, and this is a pathway to starting your own chapter.
DanceSafe is a nonprofit, harm reduction organization promoting health and safety within the electronic music community. We currently have local chapters throughout the US and Canada. Our local chapters consist of young people from within the dance culture itself who have a sincere interest in bettering their communities and educating themselves and their peers. We train our volunteers to be health educators and drug abuse prevention counselors within their own communities, utilizing the principles and methods of harm reduction and popular education.
Our information and services are directed primarily towards non-addicted, recreational drug users. Non-addicted drug users are an under-served population within the harm reduction movement, despite the fact that they comprise the vast majority of drug users in our society. While many organizations exist that provide services to drug-dependent individuals, few groups address the needs of the majority of non-addicted, recreational users. We hope to fill this gap. When needed, we will always refer people to appropriate treatment programs.
