Hyperborea is made possible by the efforts of its volunteers and team leads. Without them (you), none of this is possible.
There are numerous leadership positions currently open for Hyperborea: Crossroads. Below is a list of the Departments and the roles we are looking to fill with eager Hyperboreans. If you are interested in any of these positions, please fill out the Hyperborea Leadership Interest Form found at the bottom of this post.
We’re looking for one or two people to take on the position of Safety HQ Lead. This vital role will be responsible for setup, operation, and strike of the base of operations for our safety teams. It would include building and coordinating a team of HQ volunteers to fill generators, turn on heaters, hand out radios, and keep our infrastructure operating smoothly.
We are looking for individuals based in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa to help coordinate and manage all elements of volunteering within Hyperborea, or on behalf of Hyperborea.
The role involves assessing and meeting the needs of the department leads, through recruitment, placement, and retention of volunteers.

We require an intrepid individual to be responsible for the design, budgeting, construction, maintenance, and disassembly of the Centre Camp structure. Centre Camp should provide a place for attendees to gather, hold workshops, display art, offer classes, and other activities.
