Volunteer at the Longhouse Dialogues!

Are you looking for an incredible, engaging and fun volunteer experience?

Join us and volunteer with BCCIC for the Longhouse Dialogues on May 31st – June 5th 2019!

This exciting public event features traditional Longhouses (in the style of the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakwaka’wakw and Pacific Island peoples) will be erected to provide a backdrop for BC-focused, Canadian-centric events and dialogues that will explore pertinent issues to women and girls.

The Longhouse Dialogues afford thousands of members of the general public, Indigenous peoples, and conference attendees from around the world–including leaders from various levels of government–the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with one another in authentic and intimate gathering spaces.

The event will take place between May 31st –June 5th , between 7 am and 9 pm. We will also need volunteers on May 30th and June 6th to help with setup and takedown.

We are looking for volunteers to fill roles throughout the event dates. Shifts will be around 4-5 hours and consist of setup, takedown, public engagement, and site management (eg. zero waste program).

If you’re interested in learning more about the roles available and to sign up, please check out our volunteer form: https://forms.gle/DsCjfSbWyTsqucJr5

The deadline to sign up is May 28th 2019 at noon PST.

Please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Fung, at Jessica.volunteer@bccic.ca if you have any questions, and we are looking forward to seeing you at the Longhouse Dialogues!
