Volunteer with Teen Health Source!

Do you live in Toronto? Are you between the ages of 16-19? Do you like to talk about sex?

Then you can apply to be a volunteer sexual health educator with Teen Health Source!

We’re looking for folks who are interested in learning more about sexual health, and in sharing that information with other teens.

This is a great opportunity for people looking to complete volunteer hours, or for people looking for experience in education, community agencies, or public health!

Eligibility: This volunteer opportunity is open to youth of all genders and backgrounds who are between the ages of 16 and 19.

Training: Training starts in November, taking place over multiple weeks for a total of 30 hours. Training will run one evening a week and some Saturdays. Applicants must be available to attend all sessions. Training is designed to increase your knowledge of sexual and reproductive health and to develop the necessary skills to provide information and respond to questions from teens that access this service. In addition to the training sessions, applicants are also required to do readings, as assigned, for each of the sessions.

Training Dates/Times:

Commitment: Once the training is completed, volunteers must be available for three hours during at least one of the program’s shift times per week: Monday-Thursday 4:00-7:00pm/6:00-9:00pm, and Saturday 12:00-3:00pm/2:00–5:00pm. Volunteers are required to meet this commitment for one year following the completion of training.

Accessibility: We provide TTC tickets/tokens to all volunteers, as well as snacks! We have gender neutral washrooms, although our building is not physically accessible.

DUE DATE: Sunday, October 15th at midnight. Interviews will be scheduled in the weeks following.
