Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that works to empower and support young people to get involved in their communities and cities.
Our RISE program is designed for young people with little or no previous experience in volunteering. Over the course of 20 weeks, our RISE Ambassadors will build skills and collaborate with others to build a community project in their city. RISE is currently offered in the cities of Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.
Take a look at our RISE page to see what projects our current groups of ambassadors are working on in their respective cities.
Our 2019 Theme: The Environment
For us, environment is not just what's around you, but it’s understanding how these surroundings affect your life, well-being and overall health on a day-to-day basis. You will learn from locals doing similar work and explore ways that you can also participate in creating positive environmental change. You don’t need to be an expert in the topic already. You just have to be open to learning!
The RISE program will run for 20 weeks from August 5th, 2019 to December 15th, 2019. Youth ambassadors have to commit 6 hours a week. There is also a mandatory 4 day retreat to attend between September 5th and September 8th, 2019. All expenses are paid. Ambassadors from across Canada will come together in Quebec to meet each other, build skills and get inspiration for their projects.
