August Volunteer Opportunities

Hello Volunteers!

Summer is not over yet, and we’ve still got events and other things coming up where we need some support.

Upcoming opportunities include:
– Field Trip Facilitation (Aug 17)
– Iron Horse Festival (Aug 18 & 19)

Field Trip Facilitation:
On Aug 17, STEAM Centre will be visiting St. Thomas YWCA to facilitate a field trip for 110 kids. We need 10 volunteers in order to make this happen!

Date: Friday, August 17
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 PM
Location: Mitchell Hepburn Public School

If you like working with kids and want to have a really fun day with us, this is the perfect opportunity for you! We will make sure you have all the knowledge you need in the week leading up to the day, so that you can feel confident in helping to facilitate the programming.

Iron Horse Festival:
STEAM Centre is attending this year’s Iron Horse Festival on Aug 18 & 19. We will be running STEAM City Arcade in the Tech Tent! From plinko to video games, we’re going to create a fun-filled STEAM arcade for festival-goers to enjoy.

Saturday, August 18
Location: Downtown St. Thomas on Talbot St.

Volunteer Times:
10:00 AM – 6:00 PM (8hrs)
Sunday, August 19
Location: Downtown St. Thomas on Talbot St.

Volunteer Times:
11:00 AM – 7:00 PM (8hrs)
If you are available for either or both days, please let us know! We’ll need at least 2 volunteers each day.
Please note, these roles require you to have a Vulnerable Sector Police Record Check done. If you have already done this, great! Bring in a copy for us to have in our files.

If you do not already have a record check done, but would like get it so that you can volunteer with the kids here at STEAM, follow these steps:

1) Ask us at STEAM for a letter that will waive the $35 fee that the police station charges for a record check.

2) Visit your local police station to get your record check. Be sure to get a Vulnerable Sector check done. This will allow you to work with children. You’ll want to get started right away, it can take a few weeks to process.

3) Bring your record check in to STEAM and start volunteering!
If you would like to help out, please email Elizabeth Nagy, Program & Volunteer Coordinator.
