RISE Ambassadors are the lead creatives behind the community project taking place in Ottawa. They will research topics to develop ideas for a community project and work in a group to decide on one project to execute and evaluate. This group will be led by the local project coordinator.

Apathy is Boring is a non-partisan, charitable organization that supports and educates youth to be active and contributing citizens in Canada’s democracy. Our vision is a Canada where every young Canadian is an active citizen, and youth are meaningfully engaged in all aspects of the democratic process.

The goal of the RISE program is to mobilize our less engaged peers in democracy by getting them involved in a community project around the theme of Social Inclusion. Last cohort, the ambassadors involved challenged stereotypes, created opportunities for dialogue between different youth groups, and used art as a means to talk about their peers' experience with Social Exclusion. We're looking forward to seeing what this cohort's group of ambassadors come up with.

The RISE program require participants to:
- Be 18-30 years old.
- Make a weekly commitment of 6 hours (3 hours in person and 3 hours online) for 20 weeks between August 6th and December 17th 2018
- Attend a mandatory 3 day retreat between August 28th to 31st. All expenses paid!

If you do not meet these requirements, then we encourage you to fill out our general volunteer form and we'll be in touch when we have an opportunity for you!
Location: Ottawa
Deadline: Jun 10, 2018
