Volunteer with Zero Ceiling

Adventure Session Host – Summer 2021

We’re recruiting Adventure Sessions Hosts to help us provide access to outdoor spaces and land-based healing for young people who are traditionally excluded from these spaces and experiences. This includes young people aged 16-24 who are at risk of homelessness, from government care, facing mental health issues, experiencing poverty, and Indigenous young people.

Adventure Sessions Hosts connect with groups of young people visiting Whistler to hike or mountain bike, often for the first time. You’ll spend a day with our staff and youth exploring the mountains, connecting to nature, and trying new things. Our volunteers have a real impact on the experience of young people taking part in the program. The key to the role is making participants feel welcome, included, heard, and understood.

Find out more about the Adventure Sessions Program.

Role Requirements

We’re looking for Adventure Sessions Hosts who:

  • Are confident hikers and/or mountain bikers with knowledge of Whistler Blackcomb
  • Can quickly build supportive relationships with vulnerable young people
  • Can create a safe and welcoming environment in the outdoors
  • Can commit to at least two Wednesdays or Thursdays per month from July 1 – September 30, 2021
  • Preferred: Have a Whistler Blackcomb summer hiking or biking season pass (this helps us save our tickets for youth)

All volunteers will need to get a criminal record check (which is free for volunteers) and complete a waiver and release of liability agreement.

Inclusion

We are working towards creating a more inclusive volunteer program at Zero Ceiling that reflects the populations we serve. We actively welcome applications from all qualified people, including those with lived experience of homelessness, poverty, and mental health issues, as well as racialized people, people of all sexual orientations, women and trans* people, Indigenous peoples, those with diverse abilities, and from all social strata.

We recognize that for some people there may be barriers to volunteering with Zero Ceiling. If this is the case, we encourage you to reach out to Lizi McLoughlin (lizi@zeroceiling.org) to discuss what support we can provide to help you participate as a volunteer.

 

Application Deadline: June 20, 2021
