TEENS in Action

Join us for monthly Community Service Projects both in Strathcona County & Surrounding areas.

Ages 12+ (Depending on monthly project)
Transportation Provided

IVC is excited to be able to offer unique “one off” volunteer opportunities specific to youth, as an alternative for those who are unable to commit on a regular basis. These “once a month” projects provide a wide range of experiences and are limited in time which adds appeal for those youth who struggle with their availability.

Because of the wide range of dates and times each planned project is offered you have the freedom to pick and choose what best suits your availability in addition to the appeal and type of experience you wish to gain. Keep in mind that there will always be a limited number of spots available for each project so the sooner you sign up the better chance you will have of being guaranteed a spot.

Immediate benefits gained;

  • giving back to your community & self satisfaction
  • the ability to complete required volunteer hours needed for school
  • work experience that can be added to your resume
  • a potential reference from IVC
  • meet new people in and around your community
  • learn new skill sets
Become a youth member

How this works:

Youth sign up to become a youth member. Once registered, you will be sent information regularly on upcoming group opportunities that IVC has arranged.  At this time you can either sign up for one or more or none.  It’s completely up to you.

*The opportunities are limitless and will change on a regular basis to provide you with a variety of experiences.

IVC will provide transportation to and from the projects not taking place within Strathcona County to ensure each youth has an opportunity to participate. Students will be asked to fill out forms with their parents/guardians to ensure the terms of agreement are in place prior to getting involved.

Limited spots available!
For more information or to register call Le-Ann today at 780–464-4242.

Upcoming Teen Volunteer Projects

November, 2018

November 3rd, 2018  (12:30-5:30pm)

Youth Rocks Amazing Race

min age 14yrs

12 volunteers needed

Volunteers will be buddied up with a team of two and follow the team around during their challenges and road blocks (Just like the TV reality Show). You will be asked to time certain challenges, ensure the team stays on task and hand out clues at designated points of the Game. It promises to be a jam packed afternoon ending with a gathering for all the volunteers and game participants to enjoy some food, beverages and most likely lots of laughs. A super cool volunteer activity!

November 22nd  2018, (5:30-8:30pm)

It’s a Matter of Choice (Career Fair)

min Age 13yrs  

4 volunteers needed

Assist our staff at the Information & Volunteer Centre for Strathcona County (IVC) booth, by sharing information to other teens and parents about volunteer opportunities available (we have paper copies of lists to hand out) as well as possibly talking about the benefits such as resume building, required hours for school, gaining new skills etc… As a volunteer you will engage with the residents in your community while sharpening your social skills and providing your personal experiences and comments with peers who would appreciate your opinions.

December 2nd, 2018

IVC’s Holiday Dinner

Min age 12yrs

15 volunteers needed

Table Hosts
Table Hosts are needed and could be a busy volunteer activity, depending how many guests are at your table. Each table is assigned 2 volunteers to assist at the table. 1 adult and 1 youth. You will help with ALL the needs of that particular table.
For example:
· Greeting guests at the start and assisting with coats and boots
· Showing them to their tables
· Assisting the family or person to and from the buffet, refreshments and any other needs they might have
· Assist with handing out gifts to your guests on their way out and end of evening needs
· Clean up tables at end
· Conversing with your table the entire evening to ensure they have enjoyed themselves and feel extra special on this night. Get to know them, listen to their stories or share your own.
