Outreach Volunteer

Outreach volunteers help with educational tasks – such as boothing and helping the Outreach Workers facilitate workshops. Outreach volunteers are expected to commit 6 hours a month, which includes a two-hour monthly volunteer meeting. All SASC volunteers have the option to be part of smaller committees which organize either events, film screenings, or assist in creating educational workshops. All SASC are expected to be present at our volunteer orientation training and monthly ongoing meetings.

You can read the volunteer application, training, and meetings schedule here. Note: Volunteer meetings will be on Mondays, not Wednesdays.
