We're recruiting volunteer staff members!

Our volunteer staff of young Canadian journalists is devoted to sharing unique stories and prioritizing marginalized voices. As we grow, our publication is seeking new volunteer members to join our team. Volunteers at The Pigeon are invited to set training goals and work with our editors to improve in their areas of interest, tailoring each role to individual needs.

We are looking for young journalists over the age of 18 based anywhere in Canada to fill these digital volunteer positions. While there are some basic skills required for each role, there is also room for growth. Even if you are unsure you qualify for a volunteer position, or have related but not direct experience in any given area, we strongly encourage you to apply.

We are committed to supporting a more equitable media industry in Canada. Volunteer applicants who are Indigenous, Black, people of colour, LGBTQ2S+, or who have a disability are encouraged to apply. If you would like, please indicate that you are a part of one or more equity-seeking groups in your cover letter.
