The following is a selection of volunteer opportunities from various community organizations, made available through Volunteer North Shore, a North Shore Community Resources Society service.
CONNECTRA MENTOR is needed to work with ConnecTra staff and meet participants with physical disabilities to help them achieve their goals and get registered at WorkBC. Past volunteers have provided services that include helping a participant frame her artwork for sale, enrolling participants in landscaping and public speaking courses. Goals set with participants can range from employment to volunteering or recreation, and will help the participant realize their full potential.
PROGRAM MENTOR is needed to introduce key business concepts to students in grades 5-7, and provide
students with handson experience in small business organization, management, production and marketing; lead lively class discussions and involve students in exciting activities; bring and share personal business expertise to encourage students to explore business concepts; prepare independently for sessions with provided facilitator guide and personal examples; be available for four or five one-hour sessions.
VOLUNTEER Connect Day (Oct. 16) is an all-day event at John Braithwaite Community Centre. Volunteers are needed out front of the community centre welcoming and directing people, assisting people to upper floor clinic space, helping with registration, serving meals (with Foodsafe), and set-up and cleanup.
