HOW?

All you need to do is contact us , then you will complete an application and other supplemental forms in addition to completing a criminal record search.  When all the paper work is completed you will be invited to join our Volunteer training Session. We appreciate your promptness in submitting Criminal Record Checks as they take a few weeks to get completed and we are required to have all paper work completed for each volunteer.

WHEN?

SUMMER/FALL/WINTER VOLUNTEER TRAINING SESSION: This session is typically hosted one or two weeks prior to the start of every program season (summer, fall and winter)

More details and a list of  what to bring will be shared with you closer to the dates of training. Please note that we are not able to offer a second training session. We can only offer a volunteer shadowing orientation as a substitute to our training session, not ideal but an option if you must miss the training sessions.

WHAT IS THE TRAINING ABOUT ? You will have the opportunity to complete some basic disability/chronic condition training as well as the basics of facilitating outdoor adventures through this COVID-19 Era. You will work one-on-one with a client as their adventure buddy, each session, so we want to equip you to guide clients to succeed.

For the Fall and Winter the training also includes Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Aquatic games/ Adventure Education activities to help clients achieve their goals our different programs.

WHY?

Because you can really change the world, One Client, One Life, One water adventure at a time!

Join us! We would love to have you be a part of the Power For All Family this season!

Our online training is also split into two parts. One is a program from MacHealth and can be completed in your own time but must be done before the Zoom session. This self-paced on-line training will help you understand the basics of working with children/youth who live with developmental coordination disorder.  Our Zoom session will be June 30th at 7:00 pm. These online sessions will teach you about different conditions and disabilities our clients live with in addition to our current COVID-19 policies and procedures to keep everyone safe in the outdoors!
