VOLUNTEERING

GAIN EXPERIENCE, GET INVOLVED, BECOME A VOLUNTEER! If you are at least 13 year old, we've got so many fun activities to get involved with. Gain valuable skills, meet new people, engage with your community, and most importantly, have fun! To volunteer with Coquitlam, follow these 4 easy steps: 1. Create a Volunteer Profile Go to coquitlam.ca/volunteerprc to create your own volunteer profile. This is where you'll be able to see what opportunities are available, sign up for volunteer shifts, and track your volunteer hours.

2. Provide References While creating volunteer profile, provide two references for Volunteer Services to contact to help us learn more a little more about your skills and experiences. References should be over the age of 19 and not a relative.

3. Complete a Police Information Check All volunteers are required to submit a Police Information Check. Forms will emailed to you upon creating a volunteer profile. There is no cost for prospective volunteers.

BE A RECREATION BUDDY! A recreation buddy is a volunteer who supports someone with a disability to help them participate fully in our registered recreation programs. Recreation buddies can assist in sport programs, cooking, arts and crafts, swimming and ice skating lessons—or even preschool programs. They do not support with activities of daily living: toileting, transferring, changing, etc. Contact Volunteer Services if you or someone you know might benefit from the support of a recreation buddy, or if you’re interested in volunteering as a recreation buddy.   volunteers@coquitlam.ca

4. Attend an Orientation Session After successfully completing the reference and Police Information checks, you will receive an invitation to attend an orientation session. At the orientation, you will learn about volunteer roles and expectations as well as how to sign up for volunteer activities. Course fees do not include applicable taxes. Details subject to change.

All Abilities Welcome!
