Why RISE?

Hear it straight from the ambassadors of Cohort VI.


Who Can Join?

RISE is designed for young people aged 18-30 with little or no previous experience in volunteering.

Over the course of 22 weeks as a RISE Ambassador, you will develop skills, learn about community engagement, and work with your peers to build something meaningful together.

There are two cohorts each year: the spring cohort goes from January to June. The fall cohort goes from August to December.Youth ambassadors are expected to commit to six hours a week of volunteering: three hours at an in-person hub night and three hours online.

There is also a mandatory all expenses paid weekend retreat at the beginning of each cohort. Ambassadors from across Canada come together to meet each other, build skills, and get inspiration for their projects.

RISE THEME

As an organization mandated with engaging all youth in our democracy, it is important for us to create space for young people who aren’t included in everyday conversations. Democracy starts locally and starts with the issues that concern us in our day to day lives.

To bring youth together around some of the biggest challenges we collectively face, we identify a theme to engage in each year. The purpose is to inspire and direct the community project you will create.
