What a difference a little sunshine can make in our gardens and in our lives. Why not consider spreading a little sunshine of your own through volunteering? The St. Albert Community Information & Volunteer Centre has many volunteer opportunities to choose from and can help find the right fit for you.

Assist as an activity assistant, cookie helper, info booth helper, and/or concert security. Shifts are available throughout the day and evening. Everyone is welcome to volunteer including youth as young as 10 years of age if volunteering with an adult. This is a great opportunity to volunteer as a family.
Art & Design Festival
Do you have a passion for the Arts? The Works Arts & Design Festival in downtown Edmonton runs June 20 to July 2, 2019 and kicks off the festival season with pop-up art galleries, live music, workshops and programming. A wide variety of positions are available, so there is something for everyone and every skill!
St. Albert Relay for Life
Cancer changes everything – so can you! You can play a vital role in the fight against cancer. Volunteers ages 14 and up are needed for the St. Albert Relay for Life event on June 15, 2019 from noon until midnight. Various positions are available for this one-day event that takes place at the Fowler Athletic Park. Give a little time. Make a big difference.
Habitat for Humanity's ReStore has a big demand for friendly, outgoing volunteers who are willing to help on the floor with assisting customers, cleaning, pricing items, placement of donations/preparing displays, and maintaining organization. Minimum age is 18. There are three ReStore locations in Edmonton: North, West, and East.
Sturgeon Hospital Auxiliary Volunteer Association (SHAVA) is looking for new board members. This board is made up of directors of an organization registered under the Societys Act whose mandate is to provide service and funds to AHS and work in partnership with volunteer resources. They have a number of positions to fill, including a need for someone with interest in finances with the energy to make it happen! Annual General Meeting is on June 17, 2019.
The St. Albert Seniors Association is very short on volunteer drivers! Their drivers provide a valuable service by helping to drive seniors from St. Albert to Edmonton for medical appointment. Without volunteer drivers, many seniors are unable to make appointment or face challenges with being able to find transportation to do daily shopping or come to the Centre.
The St. Albert Seniors Association is in huge need of bus drivers. Their drivers provide transportation to seniors around St. Albert for appointments, errands, and to bring them to the Centre for programs and activities.
Assistant camp leader
Join the TELUS World of Science camp staff as an Assistant Camp Leader (ACL) to help lead young participants on a learning adventure. You will work with a camp instructor in a classroom setting to encourage interactive learning in a variety of science, computer, and/or robotics camps designed specifically with fun in mind for youth 4 to 14 years of age. If you have a sincere interest in working with children and a desire to help others develop their knowledge in science, join them to share the "WOW" factor and the wonderment of discovery. Previous education or experience supervising and/or teaching children, along with strong leadership skills ensure success in a fun and interactive learning environment.
