SNAP Buddy Scheme
As SNAP grows it becomes more and more important to me to make sure our community is as friendly and inclusive as possible. As an introvert myself I know the fear of large groups very well. Whether you're a classic introvert, an extrovert or somewhere in between the thought of spending a week with 90 strangers can feel intimidating to say the least.
We want to make the SNAP experience as friendly, welcoming and as easy as possible so one of the things we're doing this year is introducing a buddy system.
What does that even mean? Well the buddy system has the sole intention of making sure new attendees (or previous attendees - anyone can join the scheme) feel at home the Snap environment.
Our team of Buddies will act as a contact and source of support for new Snapsters. Their main role is to be a friendly face and an informal source of information about Snap. You'll meet up with your Buddy at least once a day for a chat over meals, a walk or a cup of tea, and they'll make sure you get to meet as many new friends as you want.
Your Buddy will report to the SNAP team. Your relationship with your Buddy will be totally confidential (and informal!) but in the unlikely event you have a problem while attending SNAP, there is a clear structure in place to help you to resolve it.
We are currently recruiting Buddy's from our former attendees. If you're a returning SNAPster and you'd like to support a new attendee you can let us know here.
We also have a whole load of other support measures in place, to make SNAP as friendly and welcoming as possible. You can read about them here.
We're down to our last few tickets if you'd like to be a part of SNAP 2018. We'd love to have you join us!
