Unless otherwise indicated, interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis as they are received and will close when we have filled the position. If you have any questions, please contact the recruiting team at humanresources@standcanada.org.

Interested in contributing to STAND outside of these roles? We are always happy to chat about how you can fit with us, either on a hands-on (e.g. policy research, event planning, social media) or a managing (e.g: Deputy or Director) position.

Email the recruiting team at humanresources@standcanada.org and we will set up a conversation to see how we can work together toward a world without genocide!

Why Volunteer with STAND Canada?


Connect with a team of young adults who share an interest in human rights and politics. We are a non-partisan organization and the majority of our volunteers are senior university students or millennials in the workforce;

We organize conferences at least once every year to convene with our volunteers, chapters, and like-minded individuals and organizations. We have met with former Members of Parliament, scholars, and community activists. Please view our Conferences page to learn more.


Work remotely, from anywhere and anytime (while meeting your deadlines), as we do most of our work online. You do not have to be living in Canada to volunteer for most positions. You are required to attend team, and at times general meetings, so please ensure you coordinate with your Co-Directors accordingly.

Flexibility also means that there is room to grow for you and for our organization. You are not confined to the position you apply for, and we welcome your ideas and skill contributions to different areas of our organization. We are constantly evolving while maintaining the stability of our organization. Shape your role if you wish! Bring your skills, experiences, ideas, as long as you complete core functions of the role. Or, propose a new role within STAND!

Be Engaged

  • Successful volunteers will receive a reference letter from a STAND Director.
