Want to join us as a Community Organizer?

Published by Shruti on

In this post, we will discuss the role of the Community Organizer at CTA.

If you’ve been wanting to get more actively involved with CTA, we’d love to talk to you about several volunteer opportunities to support our growth.

We are seeking Community Organizers to grow our Ayurvedic community.

This is a volunteer role involving remote work. Let’s address some questions that you may have about this opportunity.

How can I contribute as a CTA Community Organizer?

Organize online events to facilitate connections among CTA members in a variety of formats: daily practices, cooking, co-working hours, recipe/ formulation making etc. We would love to hear your event ideas!

Foster the CTA community in your local area (especially if you are located in East Coast, Seattle/ Portland/ PNW, SF Bay Area or Canada). Create a regular online event where members in your area can meet and stay connected. With COVID, we don’t plan to organize in person events anytime soon but this could be a great opportunity in the future.

Contribute original content to the CTA Blog & Newsletter on a regular basis. Content may include news & updates community members, personal stories, recipes, research, blog articles etc.

Lead a study group on a regular basis. Based on your interest and that of other members, it could be focused on traditional or modern textbooks in Ayurveda.

How much time would I need to commit?

We are flexible to explore what works for you in terms of responsibilities and time commitment.

We will need your participation at a weekly Organizer team meeting to connect and discuss plans for the week.

We think 2-3 hours of your time in a week can go a long way towards building the community. Week to week this may be less or more based on the status of your projects.

Please share what is feasible for you; we will be very fortunate to have your time and energy at CTA.

Can I work from anywhere?

Yes, you can absolutely work from anywhere as long as you are able to do your work remotely using email, Zoom conferencing, WhatsApp, Google Drive etc.

Do I need any prior experience or skills?

No, you do not need any prior experience.

If you enjoy connecting with new people, organizing groups/ events and working in a collaborative environment, you will be a great fit.

As long as you are a CTA member and feel passionate about putting Ayurveda into the hands of every individual who is seeking health and wellbeing, you already are on your way to succeeding as a Community Lead.

How can this help me?

Volunteering at CTA can be a great way to complement your ongoing pursuits in Ayurveda – whether it be as a student, practitioner, business owner or home maker. Since founding this community in 2019, it has been a very rewarding experience for me personally so I’d like to share a little bit about what I’ve gained working on this community.

Grow your professional network

I’ve formed several new relationships with fellow students and professionals in Ayurveda as a result of community work at CTA. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to them, learn from their personal journey and professional practice. I’ve been able to offer them support. This has been extremely rewarding and one of the top reasons that you may consider volunteering at CTA.

Develop your own practice in Ayurveda

As we sometimes say, we are all lifelong learners in Ayurveda. By meeting other practitioners and developing relationships with them in the real world, you will be surrounded by new ideas, motivation and energy to further your own practice.

Charter new collaborations

I’ve come across several new collaborations through the CTA community – guest speaker series, teaching workshops or apprenticeship opportunities. By joining the CTA Organizer team, you will get to be a part of a working group with common interests and goals. This can lead to many such opportunities to collaborate that maybe a good match for your interest and skills.
