April Events & Announcements

Dear EWBers,

We hope that in the past few months, you have been able to participate in the events and opportunities EWB Toronto has advertised. Many of our outreach events, workshops, and fundraisers, such as Run to End Poverty and Water for the World are executed by extremely dedicated volunteers. Without their efforts and commitment, such high levels of success would not have been achievable.

We encourage you to be a part of EWB Toronto’s continuing success, by taking advantage of the four volunteer opportunities presented below.

April Events & Announcements

  1. Run to End Poverty
  2. Canada Wide Science Fair
  3. Science Rendezvous
  4. Kids World of Energy Event
  5. Save the Date – May Shop Day

1. Run to End Poverty (R2EP) – Call for Volunteers

Last year, Toronto’s first ever Run to End Poverty raised over $15,000 in support of EWB’s Governance and Rural Infrastructure program. This year we have our sights set even higher, but we need a team of dedicated volunteers to make it a reality! We are currently recruiting for the following positions:

  • R2EP Co-Leads (2)
  • Corporate Challenge Lead
  • Communications & Marketing Lead
  • Sponsorship & Fundraising Lead
  • Events & Logistics Lead
  • Finances Lead

Not only will you have an opportunity to lead the chapter’s foremost fundraising event, but you will also have the opportunity to work with chapters across the country who are organizing runs in their own cities! If you’re a runner, a fundraiser, an EWBer or just someone who wants to make a difference, we’re looking for you! No experience required. For more details, please contact nicole.yap@toronto.ewb.ca and check out www.runtoendpoverty.ca.
