Ways to Get Involved

Community Engagement

  • Looking to get more involved in the community? Join us at local events and markets in Hamilton to provide naloxone training and naloxone kits, as well as promote SOPEN’s initiative

Presentations

  • Enjoy public speaking or sharing knowledge in a reciprocal way? Come present with us to local organizations, businesses, schools, and more

    Here’s what we are looking for:

    • Lived and Living Experience – Have you used drugs and feel you want to contribute? We can’t wait to hear from you.
    • Do you identify as a young person (25 and under), person of colour, disabled, Indigenous, 2SLGBTQ+, or another group? We are looking for feedback and perspectives from people of diverse backgrounds, let’s collaborate!
    • Community Partner – Do you currently work with youth who are exposed to drugs through personal choice or environment? Let’s network
    • Do you have a passion for volunteering or have a parent, sibling, friend who uses drugs? – your experience and input is important too, come weigh-in
    • Has the drug poisoning crisis impacted you? Your experiences are important, come share your knowledge and expertise with us
    • Have you saved a life with naloxone? We have too, lets share our knowledge in a reciprocal way

    We thank everyone who supports our community initiative through your time, donations, and encouragement.
