Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that works to support young people in taking charge of the conditions they live in. One way we do this is through our RISE program, where young people work together in a group to create and execute a community project in their city.

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!

Currently, we are offering this program in the communities of Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Toronto.

Please read before you apply!
