We are looking for enthusiastic youth between the ages of 14-20 to join us this summer at Impact Skate Camp!
More than just volunteers, we are looking for mentors. This is a chance to positively affect kids' lives by giving them support and positive role-modelling. Helping our participants have a fun, safe camp experience will also help you to learn how to build trusting relationships based on honesty and caring.
The camp will travel to different skate parks 2-3 times per week, and include group lessons, games, swimming, contests, ramp-building, a video project, and other fun, random activities.
You will be expected to arrive in the morning by 9am at East York Skatepark. Camp ends at 4pm but some campers stay for extended care until 5. You are free to leave at 4 but welcome to stay after, if you'd like.
Some of the responsibilities will include:
Help with skateboard instruction
Support the instructors with lessons, games, and activities
Help supervise on TTC trips
Help supervise at the swimming pool
Be patient, kind, and encouraging of ALL kids
Arrive on time, and let staff know if you'll be absent/late
What You Get
Volunteers will gain valuable skills and experience in program planning, team leadership, conflict resolution, and much more. On top of earning high school volunteer hours, your work with us can also be cited on your resume, and as a reference for school, college/university, and job applications.
Selected applicants will be required to attend a short training session before the start of camps.
