Housing is one of the biggest challenges facing Canadians today. RentSmart works to help people understand how rights, responsibilities, and relationships come together to allow successful tenancies to occur. RentSmart certification has helped thousands of graduates and is recognized by a growing number of housing providers and landlords.
We’re currently looking for 20 volunteers who want to make RentSmart even better. The Brain Trust is intended to be a diverse group who bring multiple perspectives to RentSmart courses with the goal of making them informative, effective and accessible.
To do this we’ll be asking you to reviewing course materials and online content and giving us your feedback. We’ll also start to look at how new technology can play a role in the next gen of the RentSmart suite of programs. We’ll connect as a group for an occasional meeting online or through conference call but much of the review work can take place independently when it suits your schedule.
We are looking for a one year commitment and the work will be about 2 to 4 hours a month. We expect to start in July 2017. Your contributions will go a long way in helping renters and landlords achieve conflict free tenancies.
For unwaged volunteers we can provide an honorarium to recognize your time. If you’re interested in participating but have any concerns about things like computer, internet or phone access, please let us know and we’ll do our best to find a solution.
