Apply to be a GivingTuesday leader
The role: GivingTuesday community leaders take varying roles, depending on their capacity and number of people on the local team. Some examples of leadership tasks:
Support for leaders: the GivingTuesday Canada team supports local leaders through our annual leaders’ summit (May-June), one-on-one coaching/planning meetings, regular conference calls, and emails with resources and educational materials. We may also be able to send a team member to present at your local meet-up (or present by webinar) depending on timing and location. You can find detailed planning tools, tips and checklists in the GivingTuesday Campaign Planner and the GivingTuesday Civic Toolkit.
Commitment: this is a part-time, volunteer position; required time is approximately 2 hours per month March-October and 2-3 hours per week in November. Leaders are asked to commit for one GivingTuesday season: March-December. Successful leaders will be encouraged to continue the following year.
