Get Involved
Students are invited to become volunteers with RGD.
At RGD, there are so many little things that must be done to make all of the big things possible. By volunteering your time, you can help support the design community and contribute to RGD. 

We're looking for RGD Student Members who are:

  • Reliable
  • Hard-working
  • Passionate about design
  • Willing to contribute 3 hours a week to help out in a fun, friendly office in downtown Toronto


RGD Student Members who participate in our in-office volunteer program are asked to choose a day of the week and a three-hour time slot that you can commit to each week, and then we will put you to work in our office at 96 Spadina Ave.


Please note: Volunteers do mostly administrative tasks! Design is done by professional Member volunteers.


What's in it for you? 

In exchange for your efforts, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about the Association - who we are, what we do and how we do it. You'll also be invited to attend RGD events free of charge. And, if you stick with us for more than 39 hours and demonstrate your reliability and work ethic, you'll receive a Certificate of Appreciation, a free copy of The Business of Graphic Design: The RGD Professional Handbook and the opportunity to volunteer at our annual DesignThinkers conference - the biggest annual event for visual communicators in Canada! Not to mention the good feelings that accompany contributing your time and energy to helping maintain the hub for the graphic design community.
