1. Fill out an online application.
We are now accepting applications for the 2017 season. You can complete your application before or after attending an information session.
2. Attend an information session.
The information session is a brief overview of our program. At this session we will also discuss eligibility criteria, the application process, the types of positions available and other important information.
3. Complete a face to face interview.
The interview will help us determine the right fit for you. Unfortunately, due to the high number of applications received, not all applicants will be accepted.
4. Complete background checks.
If you are 18 years of age and older, a police record check and a child abuse registry form is required. The cost will be covered by the Assiniboine Park Conservancy. Volunteer Resources will perform a personal reference check.
5. Attend a classroom orientation.
Once you decide that volunteering at APC is the right fit, you will be invited to attend the classroom orientation. Classroom orientations will include an overview of our policies, procedures, customer service training, and a more detailed look at your role as a volunteer.
6. Participate in on-line and on-site training.
This training will prepare you for your volunteer roles in the Zoo and Park.
