1. Read through the Expectations of a Collective Member
You can read the Expectations of a Collective Member here.
Make sure you take your time to ask yourself if you’re in a place right now where you will be able to manage the Collective’s expectations.
2. Complete this self-guided pre-screening questionnaire
Take a look at the pre-screening questionnaire below. These questions are to help you assess whether you will be up to challenge of Support Work, which can be both rewarding and emotionally draining. It will also ask you to reflect on your personal beliefs and biases, and whether they are compatible with a Feminist-based support model.
3. Contact our office for an Entrance Interview
One of our Collective Members will get in touch with you to set-up an Interview where we can discuss SASC’s work and how you can contribute to it.
4. Complete our 80-Hour Collective Member Training
We typically offer volunteer training twice per year. Our spring training, beginning in April, is open to all women, while our fall one, beginning in September, is only open to women experiencing marginalization based on their racial or socio-economic background, sexual identity or orientation, as well as learning and physical differences. The training takes about 80 hours, preparing you to become a support worker and a collective member at SASC.
