Once you have completed your training as an Ambassador, there are many more year round opportunities for our volunteers:
In addition to regular Ambassador shifts, Special Events Volunteers help with a variety of roles during our special event activities throughout the year. Arts and crafts, reading stories, or face painting are typical activities. If you enjoy interacting with children and meeting new people, we welcome your skills as a Special Events Volunteer. Special events at Assiniboine Park and Zoo include Northern Explorer Month, International Polar Bear Day, Red Panda Day, Wildest Dreams, Brunch with Santa and many more throughout the year.
If you enjoy collaborating with like-minded, goal-oriented volunteers, we have committees for planning and organizing unique events like the Polar Bear Run and Wildest Dreams. Our fundraising volunteer committee is always on the lookout for new members willing to share their ideas and experience.
