Apathy is Boring is a non-partisan, charitable organization that supports youth to become change-makers in their everyday lives.

Our vision is a Canada where every single young person is a change-maker in their everyday life, and meaningfully involved and included at every level of democracy. This is more than just voting. It is about setting up young people to take charge of the conditions they live in.

Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Apathy is Boring
Have you always wanted to create change in your community? Do you want to connect with young people in your city? Are you interested in gender inclusion?

We got you! If you're a youth aged 18-30, apply to join Apathy is Boring's RISE program starting in January 2021

Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that supports youth to become change-makers in their everyday lives and communities.

Our RISE program is designed for young people with little or no previous experience in volunteering. Yet! 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.

The theme of this RISE cohort is Gender Inclusion. For us, gender inclusion is about understanding and working to remove the barriers faced by folks with marginalized gender identities (i.e. two-spirit, trans, non-binary, women, etc).


Working towards gender inclusion involves the engagement of all genders and allies. In RISE, you don't need to be an expert. You just have to be open to learning. All are welcome to apply!

The RISE program will run for 22 weeks from January 18 to June 12, 2021. There is a mandatory virtual retreat February 18-21, 2021.
Location: City of Ottawa
Deadline: Dec 6, 2020
