Our volunteers play a very significant role in helping us have the impact we do in our community. It is the passion shown by our volunteers that gets our participants excited to try new things, it is your leadership that helps us take young people outside of their comfort zone and expand their horizons, and it’s your positive example that can help shape the lives of the youth we work with.
What are we looking for?
Most of our volunteers come help us out with program delivery. We are always looking for passionate individuals that want to come out and share their love for the activities we do while also being a positive leader, role model and mentor for our participants. We ask that our program volunteers be able to commit to attending one session per week for the duration of the program to allow for relationships to develop and grow as this is where we see our programs have the most impact. We are looking for individuals that have their own equipment to use during the programs and having a season pass at Big White for the winter is a big help in keeping our costs down so we can put more money into our participants.
Currently, we are also looking for volunteer drivers year round. If you have a class 4 licence and would be willing to help us out driving for our programs we would love to hear from you!
When do we need help?
Learn to Shred runs from January 9 - March 15 2020. There are three, 4-week programs that running during these dates, you can come out for as many as you want! Volunteer training is January 5, 2020.
Get a Grip runs for 4 weeks from May to June 2020, with a mixture of weekday indoor sessions and weekend outdoor sessions.
Live to Ride runs for 7 weeks from July to August 2020, two weekday afternoons per week. We also spend two full days riding lift assisted downhill trails each summer.

Leaders in Action - our 10-month long, all-sport, skill-building program that gets our older kids involved in all of our sports as well as in leadership, volunteering, and fundraising skills. The program runs from the end of August until June, 1-2 sessions per week. You can join us for a certain activity, a semester, or the entire program! It's a great way to build strong relationships with youth over a longer period of time.
You must be able to provide a clean criminal record check in order to volunteer with Elevation Outdoors.
