There is lots of exciting and rewarding work to be done at SACHA.
From answering our 24 Hour Support Line, sitting on centre committees and volunteering at events, last year volunteers contributed over 11,000 hours to the centre.
How to volunteer
Women and non-binary volunteers answer SACHA’s support line twenty-four hours a day from their homes. A sixteen week training is provided for all interested volunteers.

Take Back the Night
Take Back the Night is a powerful opportunity for women and non-binary people to build connections, reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence in our community.

Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair
The Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair, organized by SACHA, celebrates and creates spaces for marginalized groups to have discussions about feminism through do-it-yourself publishing.
Public Education volunteers are mainly responsible for helping create public awareness about SACHA, our services, and upcoming events. This is mostly done through tabling at events and festivals in the Hamilton Area (including Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Dundas, and Waterdown). They also help assist at public education workshops (online and in person) with logistics, group facilitation, and demonstrations.
This intake period of Public Education volunteers is now closed. Please check back again for future intake periods when more information is posted.
