Description of Duties: Use your voice to amplify our message

ShelterBox Canada is an organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right - that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. Last year only one in five families worldwide received the support they needed following disaster. At ShelterBox, we are impatient to create a world where no family is without shelter when disaster strikes. Together, we are making an impact and you are a critical part of our movement.

As a ShelterBox Canada Advocate you support ShelterBox by sharing our recent news and updates from the field. Advocates are very important for getting our message across multiple platforms so that we can reach the most people from coast-to-coast. We are looking for people who have an enthusiasm for spreading the word about ShelterBox and can create their own content to engage with their networks.
