Description: Are you interested in working towards greater social and environmental justice on campus and in the wider community?

Join us for a (re)introduction to OPIRG! Enjoy a free dinner, check out the office, and take the opportunity to chat with other people interested in making change. Learn about the history of OPIRG, what we stand for and what we can offer you as an activist and organizer.

Volunteering with OPIRG is a unique experience, and there’s something for everyone!

Are you interested in (im)migrant rights, bicycle advocacy, food justice and sustainability, pipelines and tar sands, or river health? Hear from OPIRG’s Action Groups and the Speed River Project Coordinator about their projects and goals for the year and how you can get involved.

Is there an issue you’re passionate about? Learn how to start an action group! We can help you access the resources, training, office space, people, and funding you need to help you achieve your goals.

Do you want to help out in the OPIRG office or resource library? Do you like, or want to learn how, to plan and run events and workshops? Are you interested in community radio? Learn about the many ways you can get involved – all contributions welcome, and no experience necessary!

Have you ever thought about sitting on a Board of Directors? OPIRG’s board is made up of students and community members, a couple of whom will be there to tell you what it’s like and how you can apply.

We’ll also have information about all of our upcoming workshops and events.

OPIRG is located at One Trent Lane, at the corner of College Avenue, on the University of Guelph campus. The office is a wheelchair accessible space with an accessible gender-neutral washroom. Please help us to keep the space scent-free. If you need bus tickets or child-care, have any dietary restrictions, or have any other accessibility questions or concerns, please get in touch.
For more information call 519.824.2091 or email me at [email protected].

We hope to see you there!
