Thank you for your interest in joining SACOMSS!
Each year, interviews occur in mid-September, and trainings run from September to October over the course of 3-4 weeks, totaling to 30-40 hours (varying with each branch). Training is held during weekday evenings and weekend afternoons. Depending on a branch’s needs, sometimes training will also run from January to February and/or in May.
Time commitment varies with each branch. While training itself is quite a commitment, it is a fun and transformative learning experience filled with great people and thought-provoking conversations, and our volunteers tell us that they grow, both personally and politically, from the training and find the support and advocacy work to be very important and rewarding. If you are concerned about your ability to commit to training and/or volunteering, please contact the respective branch.
If you are interested in training to volunteer for one of our services, please visit their branch page and contact them directly for information on their interview and training process.
Note: You do not have to be a McGill student to volunteer with us!
