Healthier Masculinities Volunteer

The Healthier Masculinities Program was created to engage men and masculine-identified people in sexual violence prevention and to foster a culture of healthier masculinities on the UBC campus. We take a multi-pronged approach to this mandate, hosting informal discussions, free educational programs, outreach materials, events, and more. To accomplish this, we’re looking for volunteers with diverse skills and experiences to help engage our community.

This position is open to all students. We especially encourage men and masculine-identified students to apply!

Healthier Masculinities volunteers are expected to commit to at least 6 hours per month, including a 1.5-2 hour meeting on the first Tuesday of each month. Volunteers will also sign up for one committee described in the document below, which will specialize in one area of our operations. Volunteers will also be expected to do one boothing shift per month, and be available for our training on the evening of Friday, September 21st and 11-4 on Saturday and Sunday (Sept 22nd and 23rd).

Please contact sascmasculinities@ams.ubc.ca with any questions or concerns.
