Why do you want to volunteer with us?


Help us match you with a perfect position!

We want to ensure you are matched up with a volunteer position that you will be comfortable with. Please mention anything that we need to be aware of to help you sign up for a volunteer role e.g. unable to stand for long periods, stairs are difficult, have animal, plant or other allergies etc. Our organization is an inclusive organization and wants to make your volunteer experience fun and rewarding. We will make every effort to reasonably accommodate volunteers with limitations. If a volunteer requires an aide to fill a volunteer position, the volunteer must provide their own aide. The aide will be required to register as an Explore Edmonton volunteer.



Experience

Is this your first volunteer experience? Don't be shy to tell us if it is. You need to start somewhere! If you have volunteered before, we would love to hear what you have done.
