Volunteer Opportunities – Winter 2017- 2018

Winter Programs are right around the corner!

Yampatika is recruiting new and experienced volunteers to help with our busy winter program schedule! If you enjoy interacting with people and love to snowshoe or ski this might be a great match for you!

What’s involved when volunteering with Yampatika?

  • Volunteers support our Naturalists leading programs. There are lots of ways they do this and here are a few important ones:
    • Arrive 15 minutes prior to program start to help the Naturalist meet participants.
    • Greet participants with a smile and help the Naturalist hand out snowshoes and assist participants to get their snowshoes on.
    • Snowshoe or ski at the back of the group to ensure the group stays together.
    • Volunteers need to be friendly, able to carry on conversations, and encouraging to all participants!
    • Volunteers should be comfortable and excited to be outside in all weather conditions and be able to keep pace with the group.
    • Lastly, we encourage you to be curious and learn something new each time you’re supporting a program!
