WHAM – Youth Volunteer and Mentorship Program

Orientation Day

June 1
10:00am – 12:30pm

WHAM’s youth volunteers are vital to the success of our camps. We believe that each volunteer can offer something unique to our programs , whether you have a special talent or interest or just enjoy working with kids. The Youth Volunteer and Mentorship Program is offered to youth ages 13 and older. Volunteering is a great way to begin a resume, earn school volunteer hours, make new friends, and develop leadership skills.

Before they can begin to volunteer, all youths are required to attend an orientation day at WHAM. This short session includes an introduction to the museum, Health & Safety and AODA training, a fun museum challenge and a pizza lunch. After successful completion of the museum orientation, youth volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in programming, help plan and implement camp events and activities, and take part in off-site trips.
