Project Babylon has officially been running for a year! And what a year it has been. To celebrate its birthday, Babylon is undergoing a restructuring of sorts, to ensure its longevity, growth and success. In addition to the Project Coordinator, we are looking to create a whole committee dedicated entirely to the smooth running of the project. Please see the role descriptions on the committee page of the website for the positions we need to fill. Please also note that we are looking for THREE Resources and Implementation Representatives, one for each of the languages provided by Project Babylon: French, German and Spanish.
If you think you would like to play an important part in a YUSU Volunteering Project for whatever reason – experience, enthusiasm, general feeling of well-being – please consider these roles! Apart from the Resources and Implementation Representatives, the other roles do not require much knowledge of languages (though enthusiasm for our cause is very welcome!), and none of them will require a CRB at the outset. This exciting new venture starts with a meeting for everyone interested on Friday Week 3 (29th January) at 2pm in the Resource Room of the Department of Language and Linguistic Science. This is a bit tricky to find and has restricted access so have a look for someone wearing a black and orange Student Action hoodie in Vanbrugh Walkway opposite Vanbrugh C Block (Dept of Lang and Ling Science). In the meantime, please do register your interest by sending a quick reply so that we can get an idea of how many people are interested, and do feel free to ask any further questions you might have. It might also be a good idea to start thinking about why you feel you would be good at a particular role, and what you would bring to the project this year.
Looking forward to your replies, and best of luck with any exams etc that you may have this week.
Sinead and Jen
