Volunteering

Applications are now closed for the 2019/2020 Academic Year.

Please read the information below and apply at the link at the bottom of this page.


The volunteer program at the SASC runs throughout the UBC academic year from September – April.

We hire three types of volunteers: Outreach Volunteers, Office Volunteers, and Healthier Masculinities Volunteers.

You can learn more about each position by clicking on links above.

We welcome applicants of all genders, orientations, and levels of experience in anti-violence work. Please note that none of our volunteers work directly with clients.

SASC volunteers are instrumental to the upkeep of the office space, supporting our outreach events, tabling events, and assisting with workshop facilitation. Volunteers are also welcome to lead community events and other projects as well with the support of the outreach team. SASC outreach volunteers support events for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, academic conferences such as the F-Word Conference, and AMS initiatives such as Clubs Days. Our volunteers have led large community events such as Healing Fires: Art by Survivors and Allies, Come Together, and Consent Tea.

SASC volunteers also have the opportunity to learn and engage with social justice and anti-violence education and mentorship. Our volunteer training takes place in September with community facilitators working in different areas of anti-violence in order to give volunteers a solid foundation of anti-oppression knowledge. Throughout the school year, facilitators are also brought in to educate our volunteers and enrich our program during our monthly Monday night meetings.
