Serve The City Paris Leadership Team

At Serve The City Paris, there is a volunteer “STCP Leadership Team” that reports to the STCP Directors.    The STCP Leadership Team is made up of volunteers who have a specific skill set and passion relating to project management, marketing & communications, technology, event planning, resource planning, or managing and coordinating a specific STCP volunteer activity.    Some of the positions are paid, but all the positions do require a certain number of dedicated hours per week.    Every six months, some of our members of the STCP Leadership Team do rotate, so if you have a desire to join the STCP Leadership Team, we would be delighted to share more about the role and requirements.  (Just send us an email to info@servethecity.paris).
