We would not be able to accomplish all we do without the hard work, dedication, and passion of our Storefront volunteers, committee members, and student interns. If you are inspired by our work, there are opportunities to join us!

Storefront and Home Advocacy Services

Asma and service user

Our Storefront relies on well-trained volunteer receptionists and advisors who are supervised directly by our knowledgeable and experienced staff. Without these volunteers, we would not be able to provide services to thousands of individuals every year.

Our Home Advocacy Services provides our Storefront services to people in our neighbourhood who are home-bound.

If you speak English and French (any additional languages are an asset), enjoy interacting with people, you may be interested in being part of our team!

Internships

Each year, Project Genesis provides opportunities for law and social work students to gain invaluable on-the-ground experience while receiving academic credit.

We accept a limited number of college-level and university-level students.

If our work interests you and your school provides internship possibilities, consider applying for one of these positions through your school!
