City Park Stewards, North Vancouver
Want to get out into our parks and get your hands dirty while making a difference? Then come join in the fun with the City Park Stewards!
VOLUNTEER TITLE: City Park Steward
VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES: The City Park Stewards program in the City of North Vancouver brings together community partners and citizens to restore and enhance a natural space that supports habitat for native plants and animals. To accomplish this work, we rely on local volunteers to help plant native plants, remove invasive species and care for the park. On the 3rd Saturday of each month, volunteers will assist with stewardship events at city parks throughout North Vancouver.
TRAINING AVAILABLE: Yes, available at each volunteer activity.
REQUIREMENTS: Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. The City will supply all the training, tools, and refreshments. All events go ahead rain or shine, so please come dressed for the weather, with sturdy shoes, and in clothing you don't mind getting a bit dirty. Arrive in style. Please consider walking, cycling, taking public transit, or carpooling with friends to the event. Location changes each month. To RSVP and to learn more about this program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SKILLS/ATTRIBUTES DEVELOPED AND BENEFITS: Volunteers will get to work outside to help restore and maintain parks. Volunteers can also log their hours to use towards their graduation credit.
HOURS INVOLVED: 2 to 3 hours per event. Events are held once a month.
MINIMUM AGE: All ages welcome
West Vancouver Community Arts Council
The West Vancouver Community Arts Council was established in 1968, with a mission to increase and broaden the opportunities for West Vancouver and all North Shore citizens to enjoy and participate in cultural activities. Volunteers are an integral part of our success! We are always looking for interested and enthusiastic individuals who love their community and the arts.
VOLUNTEER TITLE: Gallery Attendant
VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES: The WVCAC has openings for Gallery Attendants, who are friendly and welcoming hosts to visitors to our seaside gallery space at the Silk Purse.
Gallery Attendants provide information about current gallery exhibits, process sales from our gallery shop, the Art Box, sell memberships, and tickets to our concerts, and are fonts of information and enthusiasm for the variety of programming offered by the WVCAC. Volunteers work independently, on 2-hour shifts.
REQUIREMENTS: We’d encourage applications from students with an interest in the arts, especially visual arts, who would feel confident working on their own, engaging with the public, and handling sales transactions. Previous experience in customer service or a position of responsibility would be an asset.
HOURS INVOLVED: We encourage applications from youth at the senior high school level for weekend shifts. COVID: Our opening hours during COVID are reduced, so volunteer needs are somewhat reduced, but would certainly welcome applications from youth in anticipation of reopening to full capacity.
