Position: General Event Volunteer
Impact Statement: Event Volunteers help with the smooth running of CRD Regional Parks' special and community drop-in events. These busy events tend to involve many stations and attract large numbers of visitors, so having volunteer to help with these events allows us to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Description: Event Volunteers assist Regional Parks' staff at special and community drop-in events. Positions involve staffing an information, craft or face painting station, or other tasks as required. The commitment is for one event, 2-4 hours.
Training Details: A short orientation and safety session takes place before each event, which generally takes about a 15 minutes. Often instructions and a description of what the volunteers will be assisting with at the event will be sent out to the volunteers prior to the event.
Working Conditions: Most of these events tend to be outdoors. Events are offered year round, though most occur in the spring and summer during the busy programming season. Some events are also offered indoors. Most of the sites are quite accessible, though volunteers sometime assist with set-up and take down, which may involve setting up tables and chair, assisting with setting up tents and putting up and taking down display material.
