Other Volunteer Opportunities:
TRAC is offering a short term opportunity for an individual with extensive IT knowledge to come and perform an IT audit for TRAC. You would be responsible for meeting with staff in order to get a good sense of TRAC’s IT situation, and then compiling a list of recommendations based on our budget and organizational needs. After submitting your recommendations, you would need to be available every so often to answer questions and provide follow-up support.
Graphic Designer / Artist:
TRAC is currently looking for someone to design artwork that would be featured on our public legal education resources and promotional material. You would be responsible for speaking with staff to get an idea of the message we want to convey, and then designing the artwork on your own.
Videographer / Editor:
TRAC is exploring the idea of creating an educational video that explains the Residential Tenancy Branch’s dispute resolution process (i.e. BC’s tenant-landlord court). We are looking for an experienced videographer capable of filming and editing the video.
