Community Groups and Corporate Volunteering

HELP WILDLIFE BY
BECOMING A
CORPORATE VOLUNTEER

 

We are pleased to offer volunteer opportunities to corporate and community groups for giving days, team building and animal welfare.

The Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society is pleased to offer volunteer opportunities to corporate and community groups for giving days, team building and animal welfare. Duties for group volunteers will be in support of the mission of CWRS but will not involve direct contact with animals due to training requirements for animal care volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are project based and change depending on the season and year. Projects may include gardening, tree planting, site cleanup, enclosure repair and construction. CWRS also welcomes volunteer groups with specific skill-sets for targeted group volunteering opportunities. Examples include skills in the trades, graphic art, construction, and fundraising. To ensure maximum value for both volunteers and CWRS, we ask that groups volunteer between 4 and 6 hours. Group size is a minimum of 6, maximum 20 people. CWRS is not able to accommodate minors; minimum age to volunteer is 18.

Volunteers start their day with a short orientation which includes information about CWRS, safety measures, policies for volunteers and waiver forms. Please note that all volunteers are required to sign a waiver in order to be on site. After, your team will be shown to their project area and supervised by one of CWRS’ seasoned volunteers or staff members.

 

As part of our mission to provide rehabilitative and medical care to injured and orphaned wildlife we ask that volunteer groups make a donation in their name to participate in the volunteer program. This can be a monetary donation (priority), supplies for the project you are completing, or a donation of pre-approved items from our wish list. This donation is applied directly to our programs and services; helping us to save lives.

 

Group volunteering is available dependent on organizational needs and staff/volunteer availability. For more information or to discuss your corporate volunteer experience please contact or Executive Director at admin@calgarywildilfe.org
