There are several different volunteer opportunities with the program.
All of our program mentors are volunteers. Program mentors must be current skating school participants at the Ice Chalet, and have passed a minimum of the Delta Basic Skills Test. Additional expectations are required of program mentors as well, however the experience is rewarding in many ways.
We also need volunteers throughout the year to assist us with the production of various fundraisers, compiling materials for participants, and providing area specific expertise in helping our program be the best it can be. If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer, please contact us!
