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 teens 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 take place in November over multiple weeks for a total of 30 hours. Training will run one evening a week and some Saturdays. Attending all sessions is mandatory. 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.

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 and 6:00-9:00pm, and Saturday 12:00-3:00pm and 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 all-gender washrooms, although our building is not physically accessible to wheelchairs or other mobility devices.

DUE DATE: Sunday, October 20th at midnight. Interviews will be scheduled in the week after.
