Volunteer

We are always looking for new people who are interested in supporting our mission to foster, promote and celebrate the cultural diversity that Asian-Canadian communities bring to Canadian society. While our signature project is explorASIAN Festival which takes place in May, there are opportunities to get involved with our projects and programming year-round, including planning and producing events, graphic design, fundraising, community outreach, website design – and much more.

We would love to learn a bit more about you and your interests. It is important to us that your involvement at VAHMS enriches your own life as well. Please answer the questions below to the best of your ability, and if you have any questions about us or the work we do, please email our Executive Director Jasper Sloan Yip at Office.vahms@gmail.com.

Thank you for your time, we are looking forward to hearing from you!

Interested in gaining board experience or know someone who does? If so, then please click through to our Board Nomination portal to learn more about the nomination process and submit your self or your nominee for consideration. You may wish to learn more about our mandate and history before submitting, and you can do so, here.

All submissions will be reviewed by our Board Nominations Committee. Prospective candidates will then be contacted for an interview. Successful candidates will be officially confirmed at our AGM in January 2022.

VAHMS values the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalized communities bring to our organization. We encourage Indigenous people, people of colour, people with disabilities, people identifying as LGBTQI+, and newcomers to apply. We also understand that applicants may experience a number of these identities simultaneously in ways that reinforce and nuance their experience. We are committed to creating an organization as diverse as the communities we serve.
