Volunteer advocate - ending extreme poverty (London, ON)

1 hour / weekly
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. 

 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 every month and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended. 
Are you wondering how you can make an impact? Each month there is a call-to-action on different parliamentary engagement and advocacy actions.
