Want to be a Sense Project Animator?

We are currently seeking new volunteer animators for the 2012-13 school year!

Interested in facilitating sex ed workshops with youth in high schools? Getting involved with the Sense Project at Head & Hands is a fantastic opportunity to support the well being of youths in Montreal.

Some need-to-know info about applying to be a Sense Project animator:

  • New animators must be aged 25 and under
  • We’re looking for people who can commit to being an animator for the entire school year (Sept-early Dec, Jan-May)
  • Animators should be committed to Head & Hands principles of anti-oppression, harm reduction, and non-judgment.
  • Animators should have at least some availability on weekdays during the day. Last year’s animators volunteered an average of 70 hours each throughout the school year, but how much you end up volunteering depends on your schedule and your availability.
  • Bilingualism is not mandatory, but it’s an asset! The training will be bilingual (FR-ENG).
  • It is also an asset if you have previous animation experience or experience working with youth, but it’s not a requirement.
  • It is mandatory to attend the full animator training.
