Volunteer at Wonderhub

As a non-profit organization, Nutrien Wonderhub relies on the help of volunteers to deliver on our mission of providing a fun, inclusive environment for children and their grown-ups.

We are lucky to have a team of friendly, hard-working volunteers, but there’s always room for more! Check out our wonder-full volunteer opportunities:

*All new volunteers are required to complete a minimum 6 hours of introductory volunteering before moving on to the volunteer opportunities below.

All of our volunteers start at Tier 1 in an entry level position. In this level volunteers are introduced to a wide variety of tasks, where they learn about who we are, and what we do as an organization.

Examples of Volunteer activities in this level:

  • Create Space Cleaning
  • Create Space Program Prep

The next level of volunteering is Tier 2 – Facilitator Support. As a Facilitator Support volunteer, you’ll assist and support the delivery of our growing programming menu.

The next level of volunteering is Tier 4 – Development & Facilitation. Volunteers who are interested in developing and leading a program independently can submit a proposal to our Education & Outreach Manager who they will work directly with to develop, budget and lead their chosen project. Projects must align with Wonderhub’s strategic goals.

Examples of Volunteer developed and led programs:

  • Creative Sprouts (learning about reactive plants, hydroponics and more)
  • Creative Tales (Weekly storytime and a craft – theme varies week to week)

This Tier is great for volunteers who have a special interest that they would like to share, or if they are needing to design and lead a program for schooling.
