VOLUNTEER PRINCIPLES AND VALUES
Our goal is to provide a memorable experience to our members and volunteers
We take great pride in the professional quality of our work, providing a welcoming environment for volunteers that attracts the best people and harnesses their good will. Volunteers contribute to all facets of managing WICE activities, including developing curricula for language and cultural programs, enrolling students, marketing and publicity, office administration and website management.
We make every effort to identify and recruit the best volunteer for every job
We select our volunteers based on individual recruitment to ensure that they have the right background for the tasks they will be asked to do, and a clear understanding of what the job involves.
Opportunities for creativity and imagination
We constantly strive to discover hidden treasures in the French historical, artistic and cultural environment that presents scope for expanding our activities. We pride ourselves in stimulating volunteer creative energy to help our members make the most of living in Paris. Volunteers can expand their horizons by rotating between WICE programs or activities.
We want to stay a human scale organization
We want to stay big enough to provide our members with a wide range of activities, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty, intimacy and the esprit de corps that we all treasure and that contributes greatly to our success.
Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our values
With an increasingly diverse membership and volunteer team; we expect our people to maintain high ethical standards in their work with us.
We stress teamwork in the way we run the organization
While individual creativity is always encouraged, we have found that team effort produces the best results. Volunteers are expected to prioritize the interests of the association and its members in keeping with the team spirit.
