Disorientation 2016 is looking for Volunteers!

Disorientation 2016 is looking for Volunteers!

A coalition of allied groups on the U of T campus, including OPIRG-Toronto, have been collaborating on Disorientation, an alternative orientation week that fosters student activism, educates and agitates students about social change and works to connect campus and community issues. Disorientation is a week of panels, workshops and other events intended to expose students and community members to critical analysis, insight and research about a range of social and environmental justice campaigns.
Disorientation 2016 is looking for volunteers to help make this week our best one ever. Are you passionate about social and environmental justice? Are you interested in learning more about political campaigns happening here in Toronto? Looking to get more involved in campus politics and/or community organizing? We want you!
Disorientation is a great opportunity to plug into the political work happening at the University of Toronto and throughout the city, and learn more about the various issues groups and individuals are working on right now.
Join us in September to get the word out about Disorientation. We need people to assist with outreach, media and event logistics. We will provide the skills if you can provide your time! No experience is necessary. Just come ready to learn! We can provide trainings on the work we do and how to promote Disorientation, on outreach strategy and event coordination.
