Volunteers form the core of OPIRG’s action. There are numerous ways students and community can become active citizens through OPIRG. Our general volunteer category is built with students in mind, so there are ad hoc opportunities that fit neatly into busy schedules. We put volunteers to work on a wide range of tasks through our volunteer program, from creating content for our blog, to helping staff the Resource Centre.

There are a range of opportunities for students to build skills (and your resume) with us, besides sharing your talents to help OPIRG McMaster support students active on important public interest issues.

Apart from being a general volunteer, individuals can also join a working group or join our board of directors.

Working groups

Some volunteers enter our organization through our various working groups, made of students and community members who organize around specific issues. Each group will have their own meeting times and a range of activities. Everyone is welcome to join a working group at any time, and we welcome new ideas for groups each term!

You can apply to create a working group and check out our current working groups here.

Board of Directors

OPIRG’s volunteer Board of Directors define both our vision and our activism.
