We got you! If you're a youth aged 18-30, apply to join Apathy is Boring's RISE program starting in January 2021

Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that supports youth to become change-makers in their everyday lives and communities.

Our RISE program is designed for young people with little or no previous experience in volunteering. Yet! Over the course of 22 weeks as a RISE Ambassador, you will develop skills, learn about community engagement, and work with your peers to build something meaningful together.

The theme of this RISE cohort is Gender Inclusion. For us, gender inclusion is about understanding and working to remove the barriers faced by folks with marginalized gender identities (i.e. two-spirit, trans, non-binary, women, etc).
