Volunteering at Trico Centre for Family Wellness
Volunteering can be far more than simply doing a good deed. As a Trico Centre volunteer you have the opportunity to work together with our employees and patrons providing support in a variety of ways and in a range of areas such as: our Out of School Care program, Kids Korner, Guest Services, Child and Youth programs, the Fitness Centre and our Aquatics department.
We ask that all volunteers contribute a minimum of two hours or more per week in their chosen volunteer areas, as well as complete our volunteer orientation and any necessary departmental and organizational training. All volunteers aged 16 or over working within our facility will require a current police security clearance with a vulnerable sector search.
