Volunteer opportunities

 

To apply to become a Collective Member:

 

The Collective is the decision-making body for The Centre for Women & Trans People at York, and we’re always looking for new members. Becoming a member involves spending a few hours of your week in meetings, hanging out in the space, and organizing events. To apply, you can download an application form here to fill out, or come speak to one of the Coordinators in room 322 of the Student Centre.

Download our Collective Membership Application Form (available in PDF or WORD) and drop it off at the Centre. Printed forms are available at the Centre as well. All information provided on this form will be accessible only to designated staff and volunteers for the purpose of the Program. Submitting an application does not guarantee your acceptance as a Collective Member. Thanks for your interest.

 

 

Interested in Volunteering at the Centre?

 

We are looking for new volunteers and collective members! We are interested in students and community members who have between 2-4 hours a week to share with the Centre and who can commit about year! Volunteering at the CWTP is a great way to meet people; share and acquire new skills; challenge and empower ourselves; find and build personal support systems; and organize to resist the systems of domination in our lives. It is a great way to make an impact at York and shape the work of an important campus organization.

 

To apply to become a volunteer:

 

Please fill out our Volunteer Application Form (available in PDF below) and drop it off at the Centre, Email us at cwtpyork@gmail.com or email our volunteer and outreach coordinator at maxine.cwtpyork@gmail.com. All information provided on the volunteer application will be accessible only to designated staff and volunteers for the purpose of the Volunteer Program–printed versions of this form are available at the Centre.

 

Application Form 2014

 

Volunteers and collective members are required to attend  training before getting involved with the Centre. You will learn about system of power and privilege in our society and what it means to be a feminist and trans-positive space. You will also learn about how collectives using a consensus-based decision making process operate, what it means to be non-hierarchical and how to make our organization, space and events as accessible as possible. In addition, throughout the year the Centre will be offering additional non-compulsory trainings, (such as poster-making, web-design, how to develop a workshop) and will be facilitating on going anti-oppression discussion groups—providing you with many opportunities to learn and grow!

 

Thanks again for your interest!
