Volunteer with PPT’s AFFIRM Project!

Hey Southern Ontario! The AFFIRM Project is looking for people to join their Youth Advisory Committee for a community-based research project supporting LGBTQ+ youth around mental and sexual health.

This opportunity is open to youth ACROSS SOUTHERN ONTARIO between the ages of 16-29 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, two-spirit, trans, non-binary, and/or queer.

YOU CAN EARN $100 FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN FIVE MINUTE MEETINGS, in person or virtual!

Interested? Email a paragraph or two about yourself and why you’d like to join the YAC to Poe Liberado at pliberado@ppt.on.ca by January 31, 2018.

They’re encouraging applications from youth who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of colour), newcomer, trans feminine, asexual, intersex, and youth with disabilities.

The AFFIRM Project is a partnership between Dr. Shelley Craig at University of Toronto and Planned Parenthood Toronto. This project has been made possible through a financial contribution by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
