Join the second cohort of the Results Canada Education and Advocacy Fellowship Program! It is a 12-month hands-on advocacy and leadership training program for volunteers that will develop their skills in generating the political will to end extreme poverty in low- and middle-income countries. It is open to individuals aged 18 years and older who are based in Canada.  
 
The Fellowship provides training and support to speak powerfully, engage with the media, speak directly with parliamentarians, and mobilize your community to make change.  
 
Commitment: dedicate 4-6 hours per week to the curriculum, including a 90-minute call with other fellows each month. 
 
Deadline: October 31, 2021. Early applications are strongly encouraged as space is limited. 
 
*** Please note that you can volunteer with Results Canada as a group volunteer not involved in the fellowship program. This means you will take advocacy action with a group without following the 12-month curriculum and volunteer 1-2 hours per week on average. https://resultscanada.ca/join-us/
Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate 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 on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.  
 
If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us! *** To volunteer: sign up here: https://resultscanada.ca/join-us/ ***
