Building Parks Together


Current Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Building Parks Together Ambassador.

 

Overview of the Role

The City of Kitchener is working to improve some of our parks and open spaces to better meet the needs of the community.  One of the ways we will be doing this is going directly to community members in our parks and asking them what they value/like and how they would like to improve their neighbourhood parks.  As a Building Parks Together Ambassador you play an important role working with staff to engage residents. 

 

What will I be doing?

This is a varied role, and you could do one, or more of the following activities: 

  • Work with staff to collect information and/or feedback from residents and park visitors; 
  • Encourage residents to participate;  
  • Walk through a park or open space and direct residents to the engagement tent; 
  • Answer questions and direct difficult questions to staff; 
  • Set up and take down from an engagement event: 
  • Hand out marketing items and parks engagement information; and/or 
  • so much more! 

 

You will be notified as opportunities arise and will have the option to participate based on your interests and availability. You can help out as much or as little as they want, however, to remain an active volunteer you must volunteer for at least one shift between March and November

 

Age Criteria: 14 years or older 

 

Time Commitment 

This is a flexible role to suit your availability, however you must volunteer a minimum 1 time between March and November. You will be notified as opportunities arise and will have the option to participate based on your interests and availability
