Help us make an impact!
EV Society is a volunteer run organization. We can only do our work because people like you volunteer their time and expertise to help us in our mission to promote and support EV ownership.
Volunteering for a non-profit is a great way to build experience and make a difference! We invite you take a look at the open volunteer opportunities below. If a role looks like a good fit, please use the link to fill out our application form.
Basic requirements for volunteers are as follows:
- Interest and support for EVs! Although you do not have to be an EV owner, you should have a basic understanding of them and be supportive of the switch to electric transportation. Why would you be here otherwise?
- Must be comfortable using computer technology for remote work. We use Zoom for meetings, Microsoft Teams for collaboration, and other technologies as required.
- Although roles are accomplished remotely, you should be primarily located in Canada and somewhat familiar with the Canadian EV landscape.
- Available for virtual meetings during non-business hours. Most of our volunteers have day jobs and thus often meetings are in the evenings (with an effort to accomodate different timezones).
