Positions: Council Member Positions (volunteer)
Organization: Community Climate Council
Location: virtual position but it is encouraged you live in or near Peel Region, GTA, Ontario
The Community Climate Council are a passionate and dedicated team of volunteers who are unable to sit idle as we live through the climate crisis and strive to catalyze climate action at the local level through climate literacy and political advocacy.
Our Vision: Empowering communities to take climate action.
The Community Climate Council is a youth-founded, not-for-profit organization advocating for local climate action through enhancing climate literacy and political advocacy in Peel Region, Ontario.
We were founded on the desire to create a platform for our community members to call for bold local climate action and policy change while also working to develop our own community-led solutions. It is because of this focus that our entire approach is now community-centered and solutions-oriented.
Our organization is entirely volunteer run, funded through community donations, and inclusive of all ages.
We are currently recruiting for the following volunteer positions (among others):
Why volunteer with us?
We provide our volunteers with a platform to connect with other like-minded individuals and the opportunity to lead their own projects and initiatives. Many of our existing initiatives, such as Camp Climate, Our Climate Cafe, and Closet Crossroads, are from ideas shared and championed by our existing volunteers. We offer plenty of opportunities to gain leadership experience through our ongoing work while participating directly in local climate action.
As a relatively new volunteer-run non-profit organization, we are looking for community members who can quickly adapt to change and take the initiative to help build upon and strengthen our organization's objectives.
