Head and Hands is looking for new members for its Board of Directors! This is an amazing opportunity to get involved with an 40 year-old grassroots organization that's created The Sense Project, Faggity Ass Fridays, Street Vibes, The Serve Beach Volleyball Tournament and tons more!

Head & Hands’ mission is to work with youth to promote their physical and mental well being. Our approach is preventative, non-judgmental, and holistic with a fundamental commitment to providing an environment that welcomes youth without discrimination. We facilitate social change and the empowerment of youth based on their current needs within our community and society at large. We envision a society where all youth are participants and are inspired by the endless possibilities available to them. We encourage all applications, and in particular, we welcome youth (25 and under) and members from diverse communities to join our team.

Please send a C.V and cover letter to infoATheadandhandsDOTca, the deadline for applications is July 1st, 2008. To be eligible you must be a member or a volunteer at Head & Hands, or be endorsed by two members of Head & Hands. This can be arranged by meeting up with one of our current board members or staffers in advance of the AGM. Please contact us at (514) 481-0277 for more information on becoming a member and/or joining our board.

So, we'll vote people to be board members at our annual AGM, which is July 16th. All members are welcome! It's going down Wednesday July 16th 2008 at The Royal Canadian Legion, 5455 Blvd. De Maisonneuve W. Doors open at 5:30pm and the meeting gets started at 6pm. See our website for more details.
