Let the Autumn season inspire you to make a change for the better! St. Albert Community Information & Volunteer Centre has many volunteer opportunities to choose from and can help find the right fit for you.

Hospitality host

Help greet the world! You will be instrumental in welcoming our guests, identifying their needs, responding to questions, and directing them to their required destination in a timely and efficient manner. This is a dynamic public relations and key ambassador role to promote all the programs and services that TELUS World of Science offers!

Shelter advisory committee

The Jessica Martel Foundation needs people who have a strong background working with survivors of domestic violence who are willing to contribute to the development of policies and procedures for Jessie’s House in Morinville. The ideal candidates will have experience in a shelter and understand trauma-informed practices.

Drivers

St. Albert Seniors Association urgently looking for volunteers to drive seniors into Edmonton for medical appointments. If you enjoy helping seniors and want to help those in need – then the Seniors Association needs you!

Snow angels

There are many low-income seniors and people with disabilities who require assistance during the winter to keep their driveway and sidewalks clear of snow. This is a community outreach project through the CIVC to assist those who live independently providing them a better quality of life and helping them remain in their homes longer. Volunteer today – the snow is coming!

Puppy-raising foster

Do you love dogs? Dogs With Wings needs puppy fosters to take the eight-week-old puppy into her or his home and continue until the puppy is approximately 14 months. The puppy foster provides a home and socialises the puppy to as many environments and situations as possible. One adult must be at home all day with the puppy or take the puppy to work or bring the puppy to the DWW training facility.

Board members

St. Albert Sturgeon Hospice Association is seeking to appoint three new board members. The Board supports the local hospice Foyer Lacombe and provides community support through the Compassionate Care Volunteer program. Recruiting for a secretary, a treasurer and a communications person who can manage social media, website maintenance and Mailchimp.

Fix It Café fixers

Do you like fixing electronics, appliances, sewing, repairing jewelry and other random household items? If so the Tool Library wants to utilize your skills. We have a team of people that repair broken items for people in our community. Our goal is to keep things out of the landfill by educating others on how to fix things.
