TYPES OF VOLUNTEERS

Guest Speakers

A guest speaker’s success is often based on how closely their message compliments the event. So it’s critical to learn as much as you possibly can about your audience before your speech. We at JAYE Malta select our Guest Speakers from the local and international business communities to cover a range of different topics. It is becoming well documented that companies who have a well-thought out CSR strategy, enjoy higher growth rates, have more engaged employees on their books, whilst bettering their stock value. JAYE Malta invites specialists in various fields to attend programme events, workshops and seminars to at impart their knowledge and expertise to not only our Programme participants but other volunteers.

Facilitators

The main role of a JAYE Malta Facilitator is to help our programme participants understand their common objectives and assists them to plan how to achieve these objectives, in doing so, the facilitator should remains "neutral". In order to fulfil this need we use young businessmen/women or young professionals, exposed to enterprise, with a desire to pass on their skills and experiences of their business environments. Becoming a JAYE Malta Facilitator will challenge you – but the excitement and satisfaction of mentoring, of transforming attitudes and helping young people open their eyes to the world of enterprise is unique and satisfying.
