Our RISE program is designed for young people with little or no previous experience in volunteering. Yet!

The theme of the RISE cohort starting in the fall 2020 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).
Skills Required: Working towards gender inclusion involves the engagement of all genders and allies. In RISE, you don't need to be an expert. You just have to be open to learning. All are welcome to apply!
