Tabling Volunteer Role Description

QMUNITY Re-Opening Party – Tabling Volunteers 

Dates: Thursday, August 26th 12-6pm and Saturday, August 28th 12-4pm (4 hour shifts)

QMUNITY is BC’s Queer, Trans, and Two-Spirit Resource Centre which exists to improve queer, trans, and Two-Spirit lives. QMUNITY operates on the occupied, ancestral and unceded territories of Indigenous people across British Columbia. In particular, QMUNITY offices are located on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.

Accessibility: Please note QMUNITY’s main office space is located on the second level of the building. Applicants should be aware that there is a flight of 23 stairs to reach the office, without access to elevator, lift, or ramp. 

QMUNITY is hosting a Launch Party at Jim Deva Plaza, located at Davie and Bute, on Thursday, August 26th and Saturday, August 28th. We’ll be tabling in the plaza from 12pm to 4:00pm (6pm on Saturday) to meet members of the public to: 

  • promote our programs and services
  • ask people to sign our petition to ban conversion therapy
  • let folks know that our office has reopened to drop in visits 

Responsibilities:

  • Be available for 4 hours on event days 
  • Assist with set up and tear down of the space (lifting tables, chairs, tents, etc) 
  • Greet members of the public 
  • Answer questions about QMUNITY 
  • Ask folks to sign our petition & sign up for our newsletter

  • A strong knowledge of anti-oppressive frameworks and inclusive language is an asset

QMUNITY volunteers are put in a position of trust and responsibility with our community members, clients and youth. We conduct Vulnerable Sector Checks for all our volunteers, in accordance with Public Safety Canada’s best practices. 

Peers are able to uplift each other in unique ways – we strongly prefer our volunteers to identify as part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Preference will be given to people of all marginalized genders, Indigenous people, people of colour, and people with disabilities.
