Egale Youth OUTreach (EYO) is looking for dedicated volunteers to offer peer support to queer and trans youth.
Volunteering at EYO is a great learning opportunity for folks hoping to work with queer and trans youth in a social service setting. At EYO you will have the unique experience of interacting with participants and becoming an important and valued part of our community.
This is an ongoing opportunity: Volunteers can recommend a day during the week they prefer to volunteer and we will do our best to accommodate a schedule that is convenient for them. The volunteer in this role is required to come in once a
week for a minimum of three months.
Lived experience as LGBTQI2S community member.
Understanding of intersectionality, marginalization and a commitment to working within an anti-oppression/anti-racism framework where one is self-reflective of their own power, privilege, and their intersecting identities.
Strong interpersonal, relationship building, and conflict resolution skills.
Ability to determine priorities, be self-directed, and work with minimal supervision.
A commitment of one shift per week for three months is highly encouraged.
Preparing food, building rapport, and actively engaging with participants throughout the kitchen and drop-in areas.
Welcoming participants to the centre and fostering a warm and inviting climate.
Actively participate in maintaining a safe, respectful, and confidential space for LGBTQI2S youth in distress.
