Current Career and Volunteer Opportunities

Do you have a story to tell? We want you on the shelf of the UTSC Human Library Project!

What is the Human Library?

The Hart House Human Library Project is an event designed to create dialogue, promote understanding and reduce prejudice. A collection of “human stories” (widely varied in gender, cultural and religious backgrounds, and age) is offered on “loan” to visitors. Facilitated by Human Library Librarians, visitors “borrow” the human story for up to 25 minutes for an open conversation. The informal “Reader-Book” interaction is a positive and safe way to question and explore pre-conceived notions around race, class, gender, religion, sexuality, and share personal narratives in an open face-to-face dialogue. We hope to promote inclusion, and deepen the understanding of social justice, equity and diversity. This event is presented in collaboration with Hart House, the UTSC Division of Student Life, the Scarborough Campus Student Union, the UTSC Library.

This year’s Human Library theme is Mentorship & Community (Building)

A helpful friend, an auntie who guides, an experienced elder, the unexpected teacher–mentorship comes in many forms.

What does mentorship look like and how does it push us towards a healthier approach to community building? How does the practice of mentorship, formal or informal, impact us as diverse community members? What does the experience of being mentored, or being a mentor bring to our lives? How can mentorship shape our futures? Does mentorship provide an opportunity to resist oppression and promote wellness among people holding marginalized identities?

This Human Library, the second edition offered at the University of Toronto Scarborough, explores how mentorship can serve as a valuable tool and a source of inspiration that can bring hope and change to communit(ies). Stories are powerful. By hearing stories of mentorship that have shaped identities, this Human Library will provide a platform for participants to listen and explore the questions, ‘who is a part of my story’ and ‘how has my path been shaped by those around me’?

We strongly encourage stories from traditionally underrepresented groups and there will be a $100 honorarium available for those selected.

We are looking for folks who are comfortable sharing their stories, being open and honest, and can respond to readers in a way that prompts positive interactions.
