Otesha is Recruiting

Volunteering – Cycling and Performing Tours

You are ready for something to change. And you’re just the person we’re looking for.

Your bike will be your stallion; theatre, your sword. You’ll valiantly cycle from performance to performance, connect with communities along the route, brave the elements, and explore all the ups and downs of directly addressing environmental and social justice issues through your every day actions.

The play that your team performs will educate others, and others will educate you. You will be changing the world. No bike touring, theatre, or other experience necessary: just a willingness to give it your all.

The Otesha Project is now putting together teams of a dozen or more motivated and energetic young volunteers, aged 18 to 30, who will share in an incredible experience living in mobile sustainable communities. You can be one of them.

Intrigued? Apply.  First applied first considered. Applications for spring tours due March 1.

”If you are looking for an amazing opportunity to see the country, inspire others and change your life you should be on an Otesha tour.”    – Joel Robison (Otesha Alumni)

What is ‘Otesha’? The Otesha Project uses theatre to mobilize young people to create local and global change through their everyday choices. It’s a national youth-run charitable organization created in 2002. To date, Otesha has reached over 115,000 Canadians through theatre presentations and workshops that inspire youth to re-evaluate their daily consumer choices to reflect the kind of world they want to live in.

Word of mouth is our secret power against apathy. Deploy it by telling friends, coworkers, teachers, teammates, ninjas & pirates.

We look forward to hearing about what you envision for a better world.
Note: The Otesha Project is an equal opportunity organization and we value the different expertise and diversity of our participants and employees. We strive to make our programs accessible and will work with committed individuals to ensure participation.
