Volunteer Roles

Volunteering for PWN Barcelona or for the PWN Global federation is a great way for you to learn how to practice what Forbes magazine calls, “permission leadership” or leadership without authority. Working in a non-profit organisation is one of the best experiences you can have. You will learn and grow and most importantly, leave a legacy.  

If you need more convincing, take a look at some of the inspiring stories of our PWN members and volunteers. See how PWN has helped each of them both personally and professionally to overcome old, and face new, challenges- that's the power of volunteering.

If you can’t find a volunteer role in the list below, but you want to offer your support, please contact us at president@pwnbarcelona.net.  

We are always on the outlook for new talent and skills that could benefit our network.

To volunteers past, present and future - WE SALUTE YOU! Thank you for your hard work, throughout the years.
