Our mission to inspire the hands, heart, and mind through teaching traditional Okanagan crafts comes alive through many behind the scenes tasks. Volunteers have always been at the center of helping Okanagan Folk School function through lending a hand on projects of all sizes. Whether you are a local looking for a fun way to give back to your community or a visitor joining us for a special event and wanting to pitch in, you are welcome and needed here.
How it Works
The volunteer program is structured around these ideas:
- Volunteering should be fun! Our volunteer opportunities are often social and involve many hands pitching in to make busy work go quickly. Tasks that we need to have happen on a very regular basis for our functioning as an organization. Anyone may sign up to be a volunteer.
- Many of our volunteer roles can be completed sitting, with minimal physical exertion. If you are concerned about mobility or physical tasks, let us know and we can work together to find the best volunteer roles for you.
- We appreciate you! Volunteering is giving time and energy to something for no monetary gain. So why do it? As our volunteers will tell you, they help because it’s a great way to be a part of the Okanagan Folk School community, and because it feels good to work for something you believe in. No matter how much or little time you have to give, we are so glad you want to take part in supporting Okanagan Folk School’s mission.
