Apathy is Boring works to support young people to take charge together of the conditions that they live in. Which, by the way, is fundamentally what democracy is all about.

We support young people to learn and take action together on the issues that affect them by;

» first, providing information,
» then by providing opportunities,
» and ultimately building community.

...all led by and created with young people.


Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Apathy is Boring

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. It's an opportunity to build skills and grow social networks.

The theme for the next group of ambassadors will be 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!

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

Please read before you apply!

- Be 18-30 Years Old.
