Volunteering at Trico Centre

Volunteering can be far more than simply doing a good deed in the community.  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 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.


Volunteer Opportunities

At Trico Centre, we have lots of volunteer opportunities, for a variety of ages and interests! Contact us and tell us what you'd like to do, and we will ensure you're matched with the right department.
