If you are a high school student and volunteer with us, you can submit your hours so that they count towards your school’s volunteering requirements! Taking action with Results to end extreme poverty is a great way to get involved in something you care about and gain valuable skills while completing your hours.
We hope you choose to volunteer with us and that you’ll be as inspired as our over 500 volunteers across the country to stay with us for the long-term!
here’s how it works
what counts as volunteering hours?
There are two categories of action with Results: Action hours and Education hours.
For Action hours, track each hour you spend taking advocacy actions (suggested in our monthly Call to Action). These can include writing a letter to the editor, using your voice on social media, contacting your Member of Parliament, etc.
Education hours are any activities that help you be a successful volunteer advocate. These include attending group meetings and webinars, reading the campaign materials, doing research, undertaking activities with partner organizations, and everything else Results-related. Nothing is off limits, you don’t need to ask staff if an activity counts (the answer is yes).
Here’s an example of what your hours might look like:
|Education volunteer hours: 5 hours |
- 1 X Results Canada webinar: 1 hour
- 4 X Monthly Education & Action (E&A) group meeting: 4 hours
|Action volunteer hours: 10 hours |
- wrote a letter to the editor (research, writing, submitting): 3 hours
- social media advocacy on Twitter: 2 hours cumulatively
- phone call with MP (requesting, planning, attending the call, reporting back): 5 hours
|Total: 15 hours|
