Thank you for your continued support, the call for volunteers is now closed.
Wanuskewin is honoring the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Join us for a day of reflection, learning, and celebration.
This September 30th, we welcome you to be present and learn about the lasting impact of Residential Schools, and how we move forward in harmony.
Join us on the path towards reconciliation through meaningful and action-based contributions. Volunteer with Wanuskewin and help create a space for truth and celebration of indigenous cultures being alive, shared, and passed down for generations, being together in the spirit of reconciliation.
Volunteering is important because it offers essential help to worthwhile causes, people in need, and the wider community. volunteering also comes with many benefits such as connecting with others, building self-confidence, improving physical and mental health, and building a sense of purpose. when you volunteer with Wanuskewin, you will also receive recognition in our monthly newsletter, a free lunch, a letter of recognition from Wanuskewin, and a special invitation to our annual volunteer appreciation event at the end of the season.
Volunteers are advised to dress appropriately for the weather since some assignments will be outside.
