Volunteers Needed

Be a part of Halton's vibrant cultural progress!

The Halton Black History Awareness Society (HBHAS) is looking for volunteers to help with our ongoing activities and programs to erode racism, prejudice and stereotyping towards marginalized communities while increasing knowledge of Canadian history and its cultural landscape.

This is achieved through events including our Annual Halton Freedom Celebration Festival, Annual Emancipation Art Exhibition, an HBHAS Gospel presentation, and HBHAS Presents - speaking engagements to the public, elementary/secondary/ university & college students, businesses, youth mentoring, community groups, and historical/genealogical and heritage organizations.
