The OPIRG Resource Centre serves as a workspace for staff, for our volunteer groups to work on campaigns, for students to sign out books, or loan equipment. You will assist members seeking OPIRG services.
As a Resource Centre Attendant, you are responsible for helping keep the centre open for students and community members accessing our services. You will commit to regular hours so you can help with things like
- Welcoming visitors
- Signing out resource material (books) for library users
- Keep the Centre open while staff take lunch or attend meetings
- Sell fair trade products (Coffee, tea, etc.)
- Set up the button-makers
- Sign out (and sign in) loanable items like the projector
OPIRG Staff will provide orientation, and other student volunteers will help you learn the role.
You will be supporting the mission of a not-for-profit and gain valuable experience, with opportunities to take on other roles in the organization, including management (via our Board of Directors). Your work will allow us to provide a higher level of service to students taking action on important public interest issues. Many volunteers have started in this position and moved into Board of Director positions, adding valuable first-hand experience to the director role.
