Our Volunteers

The core energy behind OPIRG

OPIRG-Ottawa believes that for effective social change to happen, it requires direct participation. Therefore, we encourage all of our members to get involved with our programming, action groups, resource centre, research, policy work, and more!

Our volunteers comprise students and community members who are passionate about challenging oppression and promoting social, economic, and environmental justice.  Through volunteering at OPIRG, amazing folks can meet one another, share important perspectives with one another, and gain new skills.   OPIRG-Ottawa can give references to volunteers on request as well.  Since our volunteers have a variety of backgrounds, interests, skills, and levels of commitment, there are many different ways for them to plug in:

OPIRG Board of Directors

The OPIRG board, which helps to determine the direction of OPIRG as an organization, is made up of nine very dedicated volunteers who are generally elected for a 2-year term at the AGM in March.  To find out more about our board, click here.

Action group members

All the members of our action groups are run by fabulous and devoted volunteers.  Our action groups are connected to, but autonomous from, OPIRG; therefore, they all have their own processes for accepting new members. Many of them are looking for new energy and support all the time. If you are interested in joining an action group contact the group in question or get in touch with OPIRG’s action groups and community relations coordinator.  The commitment required for action groups varies according to each action group and to your own availability.

Programming, translation, promotion, research, and resource centre volunteers

Additional information about other volunteer opportunities at OPIRG is coming soon.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact our campus relations coordinator.
