Volunteer Information for ShelterBox Canada

What services does your organization provide?
The ShelterBox response to disasters is as simple as it is effective. We deliver the essentials a family needs to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. ShelterBox aid includes ShelterBoxes, SchoolBoxes (with enough supplies for up to 50 students) and shelter repair kits.


Do you have any age requirements?
18


Do you require language proficiency other than in English?
French is an asset, but by no means required.


What time commitment(s) are you expecting from a volunteer?
The role is very self-driven, as you will be working on your own to set-up presentations, fundraisers and generally spread awareness about ShelterBox. The staff at the national office in Toronto provides every volunteer with resources and support, however, the Ambassador role is something different to everyone. The time commitment will vary depending on the volunteer.


Are there any specific skills and experience required?
Public speaking skills are an asset, as well as being proactive and passionate about the organization and our work around the world.


What type of volunteer positions are typically available?
We are looking for dedicated volunteers who would like to join our Ambassador network!

Ambassadors are the face of ShelterBox in their community. Our Ambassadors are committed volunteers that speak about ShelterBox or arrange for awareness-building at local events and venues, as well as fundraise throughout the year. These incredible volunteers are at the heart of our organization and do an amazing job of sharing the ShelterBox story and inspiring others to support our work. Our Ambassadors are highly committed and are actively involved in multiple activities throughout the year and for an extended period of time. Ambassadors set personal fundraising goal and deliver presentations to Rotary Clubs, community groups, schools and more.

Volunteering with ShelterBox Canada provides you with a unique opportunity to engage in your community and set your own volunteer goals. You will be supported by the office as well as through a network of over 100 Ambassadors coast to coast.
