Description

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. We focus our work on global health, access to quality education and economic opportunities.

We direct our energy and efforts at government decision makers like party leaders, Members of Parliament and senators because they have the power to improve policies and make the monetary investments needed to end extreme poverty. We also raise awareness by writing letters to the editor (LTEs) and op-eds, using social media, fundraising and more.

Oftentimes the first step is putting these issues on the radar — and keeping the pressure on. It might seem like a small step, but it all adds up into impact.

commitment: 1 year minimum, 5-6 hours per week on average

support structure: Volunteers (virtually) meet in local groups on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.

We are looking for group leaders for our Ottawa group. Leaders organize their group’s monthly meetings online, support their volunteers in taking advocacy action, and send progress reports to Results. Read more about what leaders do: https://resultscanada.ca/volunteer-posting-group-leader/

What you bring:
-Willingness to engage and support volunteers in carrying out their advocacy (experience in community engagement and/or advocacy an asset)
-Willingness to share group leader meeting hosting responsibilities (details can be negotiated)
-Willingness to empower others who wish to take on any leadership role – small or large – within the group (mentoring experience an asset).

If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us!
