Volunteer FAQ’s

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When do the presentations take place?

A: Sun Safety presentations run February through June, Monday to Friday, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Daytime availability is a requirement! Ambassadors have flexibility to sign up to do presentations around their schedule.

 Q: What about presenting from home?  

A: Sun Safety Ambassadors are required to have a quiet room with a neutral backdrop that they can use to present from home. Reliable Wi-Fi is crucial, as well as a microphone and webcam. Having a second screen monitor is recommended.

 Q: What kind of training and support are provided to volunteers?

A: We provide our Sun Safety Ambassadors with a 1 ½ hour of training session prior to their first virtual presentation. Our Educational Coordinator will assist ambassadors during their first presentation, and will be available any time to answer questions or resolve any issues.

Q: Do I need to have any presenting experience?


A: Presentation experience is helpful but it is not a requirement. Our Educational Coordinators provide training on how to deliver our virtual Sun Safety presentation. Experience using Google Meet is an asset, but not necessary.
