faqs:

But I already am an eager volunteer!
That's great and if you wish you could renew your volunteering status and be part of the core team.

I want to be part of the core team but don't know what skills I have to offer?

It's okay to not know what exactly you can do right away. We would like you to apply
because you are concerned, driven and committed towards addressing the issue of street sexual harassment.
You could be a good conversationalist, a musician, a programmer, a home maker, an accountant- anyone really.
We truly believe that every person can contribute in more ways than one. The 'how' is something that sometimes one arrives at after getting hands dirty!

I have another job / I am at college but not sure of the time- can I still volunteer?
We expect time and energy from your end. Volunteers have managed to take time off despite other work.
Ofcourse you can volunteer but we do expect your time and your attention for a couple of hours every week.

I am a guy. How can I get involved?
BN members are both male and female. Men have always been part of BN.
Street sexual harassment is also a male issue as much as it is female because it concerns male attitudes. Have you been here yet?

How many people can form the core bn delhi team at a time?
A minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7. We think 5 would be a good number!

I live in "eg: aligarh" and my town has not been listed for BN activites- can I still apply?
Yes you can. We need a minimum of 2 people to form the core team. It could be you and a friend.

Does this mean that the rest of us don't volunteer in that time?
No. It means that you are not held accountable in the same way as the BN core team is. It means that if you are volunteering you would have to report to the BN core team and update them.

My aunt/ uncle/ grandmother/ domestic help/ are interested but they don't use the internet- can they get involved?
Of course! But since most of our communication happens online- they might have to update the rest of us through you!
