Volunteer with Zero Ceiling

We’re always looking for talented and enthusiastic volunteers to help us transform lives.

We’re currently recruiting for two of our most important – and most fun – volunteer positions for this winter. Both involve spending 4 hours per week shredding on the mountain with awesome young people. We like to think they’re the best volunteer jobs in Whistler.

Everything we do at Zero Ceiling is based in great relationships, so we’re looking for volunteers who can quickly build relationships and commit to being part of our team for the whole season (and hopefully beyond).

To apply for these roles, email info@zeroceiling.org with a paragraph explaining your relevant experience. To find out more, drop us an email or give us a call on 604.962.5000.

Work 2 Live Ride Day Volunteer

Work 2 Live is a 12-month supportive housing and employment program for young people who have experienced homelessness. Weekly Ride Day is a chance for them to have fun, learn to snowboard/ski, enjoy the outdoors, and create a sense of belonging – and our Ride Day Volunteers help us achieve all these goals. You’ll be riding all over the mountain, passing on tips and tricks, and building great relationships with the program participants.

We’re looking for Ride Day volunteers who:

  • Can be great role models for our participants
  • Are good listeners and can quickly build supportive relationships
  • Are settled in Whistler with connections in the community
  • Are advanced snowboarders or skiers
  • Have a season pass and snowboard/skis
  • Can commit to volunteering at least two Tuesdays per month all winter (10am – 2pm)

Adventure Sessions Host

The Adventure Sessions is a day-camp program for young people aged 16-24 who are experiencing homelessness. Groups of up to 12 young people visit every week on Wednesdays and Thursdays to learn to ski or snowboard, normally for the first time. The aim of the program is to give them access to the outdoors, share our love of the mountains, and have a great time!

Adventure Sessions Hosts help us greet visiting groups, organize rentals, lift tickets, and lessons, and then ride the mountain and get to know participants. Your job is to make sure everyone has an awesome day and leaves wanting more!

We’re looking for Adventure Sessions Hosts who:

  • Are at least intermediate snowboarders or skiers
  • Have their own season pass and gear
  • Can quickly build good relationships with young people
  • Can commit to at least two Wednesdays or Thursdays per month for the whole season (8.30 am – 1pm)
  • Are outgoing and can bring the stoke!

All volunteers will need to get a criminal record check (which is free if you’re volunteering for us) and complete a waiver.

To apply for these roles, email info@zeroceiling.org with a paragraph explaining your relevant experience.
