AthletesCAN Committee Applications Now Open!

AthletesCAN is looking for 2-3 people to join its Diversity & Equity Advisory Group, and 2-3 people to join its Sponsorship Committee. Participating in these committees requires a time commitment of approximately 3-5 hours per month, including a 1-2 hour committee meeting per month, on a volunteer basis. The exact workload and time commitment may vary depending on the projects each committee is currently undertaking. 

Volunteering on an AthletesCAN committee offers a chance to support Canada’s Senior National Team athletes, engage with a passionate sport community, and develop valuable skills relevant to the work of the committee. Your efforts will contribute to promoting the #AthleteVoice in Canada, and you will build relationships with athletes and fellow volunteers, all while directly impacting the lives of athletes today. This is also a great opportunity for current and recently retired athletes looking to build their CVs with sport industry experience.

Volunteers with the Diversity & Equity Advisory Group will advise on issues of diversity and inclusion and help AthletesCAN set measurable goals for how it can improve the sport landscape with respect to diversity and equity. Volunteers on the Sponsorship Committee will help develop and implement partner engagement strategies and fundraising initiatives, and identify and monitor AthletesCAN’s brand assets. No prior experience is required to apply for these positions.
