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.

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
