Here are some reasons to volunteer:
• Be a part of your community
• New experiences
• Learn or develop a new skill
• New interests and hobbies
• A sense of achievement
• Meet a diverse range of people
• Boost your career options
• Inspire others
Special events always benefit from participation and assistance from the community. A few hours here and there can make a huge difference!
Volunteers Benefits Program
When you volunteer at our facility you accumulate credits to be used towards your own (or your family’s) health and fitness opportunities at Oliver Parks and Recreation. Anytime you wish to trade in those credits towards a pass to the pool or fitness room for yourself or a family member please come in during office hours and speak to our office Recreation Clerk who will be happy to help you out. New this fall you will be able to use your volunteer hours to purchase passes to fitness programs such as Yoga, Zumba, Gentle fit or Strength and Stability!
Weight Room Volunteers
