virtual volunteer advocate - ending extreme poverty

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Results Canada

Results is a nonprofit advocacy organization of passionate staff and volunteers committed to generating 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.

What does political will mean? We believe in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to influence the Government of Canada.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, 1-2 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.

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