Volunteer at CRRC’s in-person and hybrid events!

As we slowly return to in-person opportunities, the CRRC is looking for volunteers to support us with events for the spring and upcoming summer. The CRRC hosts community events and workshops throughout the year that require lots of work to prepare, set up, and to ensure guests feel welcome and comfortable during their time and experience with us. We are looking for volunteers to join the CRRC team as we build our capacity to offer these great opportunities for community members and make a meaningful impact toward positive race relations in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough.
