150 Volunteers Needed, There’s Something For Everyone


WINNIPEG, MB – If you are wanting to volunteer in the community, you may want to look at the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC) who are hoping to find 150 volunteers.

The APC has begun its annual recruitment for volunteers to fill a variety of roles in the Park and Zoo as the busy summer season approaches. With more than 300 acres of gardens, attractions and the world-class Assiniboine Park Zoo, there are volunteer opportunities to suit a variety of skill sets while giving each volunteer a meaningful experience.

“Once again this year we have a couple of positions that are particularly suited to volunteers in the youth age category,” Shaun Leonoff, Manager, Volunteer Resources at Assiniboine Park Conservancy. “These provide a great opportunity to gain experience in a work environment and earn community service hours.”

Park and Zoo volunteers are an integral part of the APC team and play a key role in delivering exceptional experiences to visitors. Volunteer positions are open to anyone aged 16 years or older with the exception of the Zoo Camp Crew position that is open to youth aged 14 and older.

Current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Ambassadors
  • Interpreters
  • Visitor Services Concierge
  • Special Event Assistants
  • Zoo Camp Crew – This position provides the opportunity to earn community service hours while working with four to twelve year old Zoo campers under the direction of the APC Education team.
  • The application deadline for this season is May 31, 2018. For more information and to apply today, visit www.assiniboinepark.ca/volunteer .
