Volunteering may be low on the totem pole for some students during the summer season, but at closer inspection it should actually be near the top of their checklists. This is a good time of year when volunteer hours are aplenty in organizations, like RCFM’s summer market that spans from June 7-October 4.
The required 30 volunteer or community hours for high school can sometimes be daunting, but joining the RCFM volunteer team at Tipperary Park in New Westminster (next to City Hall) on Thursday from 3pm to 7pm is a fun, interactive way to spend afternoons outdoors.
Hours can be flexible, as volunteers are needed for set up and tear down. Volunteers would be helping out by organizing and setting up tables before the market starts as well as taking them down at the end of the day, helping vendors display their produce or products, putting up signs for passersby and simply making sure that visitors will have an easy, hassle-free time when they come visit.
The perks to volunteering at the RCFM are that volunteers get to be outside with musicians and painters alike, handmade arts and crafts, delicious foods and great company. What’s more, they will be given perks to being an RCFM volunteer and will be supporting their local community.
It’s a good, fun time all around and students can fill their volunteer hours without it feeling like work.
Regardless if you are or aren’t a student but would like to help out your community, volunteering is as easy as filling out this form, saving your application and attaching it in your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
