WORK EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES
Six Degrees is currently seeking applicants who are willing to make a six-month to one-year commitment to a regular weekly shift to join our Work Exchange Program. Participants of the Work Exchange Program receive Community Acupuncture treatments in trade for their time and labour. One weekly four-hour shift earns you a one-hour community acupuncture treatment that you would receive at the end of your shift or within the month. For professional service such as graphic design, we trade with workers at a negotiated rate based on their professional fee.
