We at the U of A Sexual Assault Centre believe in the power of community-driven anti-sexual violence advocacy. That’s why, for the past 27 years, the U of A Sexual Assault Centre has provided students with a one-of-a-kind volunteer opportunity that empowers them to make a difference in the lives of individuals and their community. We welcome applications to our volunteer programs from all interested students. We especially encourage First Nations, Métis and Inuit persons; people of colour; people experiencing disabilities; and members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community to apply. With your help, we want to continue to work towards our goal of creating a campus community free of sexual violence! An essential part of anti-sexual violence advocacy is providing peer education that addresses prevalent misconceptions about sexual violence and promotes a culture of consent to the broader University community.
This is where you come in! The main responsibility of our Education & Outreach Volunteers is to co-facilitate our anti-sexual violence workshop (‘Working for Change’) throughout the academic year and across campus. Before facilitating anti-sexual violence workshops, all Education & Outreach Volunteers are required to attend the full 42-hours of in-person UASAC Volunteer Training.

This project was initiated following the requests from some officials of computer centers in the city of Kpalime. The project aims to reinforce the capacities in human resources in data-processing centers to support existing trainers to better support learners and use their knowledge of managing system and computer tools.

This program is a unique opportunity for any student who opted for the trade of computers. It immerses you in the specifics of computer training in a developing country.

Volunteers will assist the training staff to supervise and assist students. The will also assist teachers in their daily work with youth. The volunteers can also do a joint program with trainers.

Duration of the project: 1 - 12 months. Volunteers are expected to arrive at the beginning of the month (from 1st to 5th of the month) because of the training week session for each project.

Accommodation: The volunteers will live with a host family which is an opportunity to learn about the local community, culture and language.
