Telus World of Science

Do you love science or just being in a fun, busy and educational environment? Telus World of Science has many interesting new volunteer opportunities available:  Science Garage workshop assistants, gallery interpreters, birthday party assistants, Nature Exchange interpreters, assistant observatory attendants, hospitality hosts, and school programs assistants.

Friendly visitors

Winter can be a lonely time for those who are isolated and alone due to health issues, limited mobility, loss of family, etc. Spend some time with a client of Alberta Health Services Home Care program as social contact could be somebody's bright spot this holiday season. You can choose your client based on interests, availability and location and are asked to give approximately one hour per week, tailored to your schedule.
