COVID-19 UPDATE: Our May 2020 round of hiring has been cancelled.
Due to the closure of the Centre and in the interest of taking all precautionary measures possible, we will not be conducting our previously-planned round of hiring for May 2020. Discussions surrounding plans for September 2020 hiring are ongoing, and updates will be posted once a decision has been made in accordance with public health guidelines. We thank you for your interest in volunteering for the SHRC, and encourage you to submit an application once we are able to resume our hiring process.
What is our Mandate?
All volunteers must uphold the SHRC mandate. Our mandate as written in our constitution can be found here.
What is the time commitment?
Our volunteers typically contribute one two-hour shift per week and four extra hours per month (for a total minimum of twelve hours per month). Extra hours can consist of any contributions to the centre such as extra shifting to volunteering at outreach events.
What can I do for extra hours?
Extra shifts, teach-ins, running booths, making buttons, wrapping condoms, designing posters, attending community events… really, anything that positively contributes to the running and outreach of the Centre.
Do I have to be a student to apply?
Absolutely not! We welcome all applicants from all facets of the Kingston community.
How do I become involved on the executive team?
Our 10-person executive board is elected annually in April by the SHRC volunteer body, and you must be a current volunteer to run. Find out more info about our “Sexec” team here.
I have questions about the application process, who do I contact?
