Impact Statement
SPECTRUM is Waterloo Region's Rainbow Community Space. Our vision is of an inclusive community where all LGBTQ2+ individuals are welcomed, celebrated, and supported as their authentic selves.

SPECTRUM's peer support groups are great opportunities to meet other people, to talk about whatever you currently have on your mind, and to make new friends! These events are ideal for those that want to socialize in an 2SLGBTQ+ friendly setting.

Ace Space meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 7-9pm. This group is for people in Waterloo Region who identify on the Asexual and/or Aromantic spectrum(s). Join us to connect with other Ace/Aro people and chat about whatever's on your mind.

Description
As a co-host for Ace Space, volunteers will require social and group facilitation skills and demonstrated empathy and sensitivity to the subject matter. Facilitators will be expected to welcome visitors, introduce them to others present, inform them of SPECTRUM resources if fitting, and facilitate and direct the conversations when necessary.
