Join our team of ShelterBox Canada Ambassadors!

Ambassadors are the face of ShelterBox in their community. Our Ambassadors are committed volunteers that speak about ShelterBox or arrange for awareness-building at local events and venues throughout the year. These incredible volunteers are at the heart of our organization and do an amazing job of sharing the ShelterBox story and inspiring others to support our cause.

We also have an exciting opportunity for volunteers who are specifically intersted in reaching out to elementary and high schools with our Young ShelterBox and Youth Prorgams!

We invest in training and resources to ensure that our Ambassadors have the knowledge and tools to speak about our organization, how we operate, and our deployments delivering emergency shelter across the world.   Promotional materials, training resources and frequent updates are included in the support we provide to our volunteer team.  

This opportunity is suited to individuals that are service-oriented, self-starters, experienced public speakers or fundraisers, and are eager to play a pro-active role in building awareness and growing our revenue base. 

Our Ambassadors are highly committed and are actively involved in multiple activities throughout the year and for an extended period of time.  If you are interested in volunteering but are not able to commit this time, we would be happy to explore other ways for you to join us as a volunteer.

Ambassador of the Month - May 2013

Dale Perret - Calgary, Alberta

Dale has hit the ground running in 2013, using new and creative ways to champion ShelterBox and broaden the Calgary support base. Dale has gained tremendous momentum this year by working with fellow ambassador Kent Fraser and helping to mentor new ambassadors to spread the ShelterBox message. Upcoming community events include presentations at Rotary Clubs, Scout groups, and major shopping centres. This is all so exciting, but perhaps the best is yet to come with Dale securing space for ShelterBox at this year’s Globalfest! Last year Globalfest hit maximum capacity with over 20,000 people taking in the events daily; equaling well over 100,000 visitors in total. With a platform that big Dale, Kent and new ambassador Ashley will be able to create some amazing buzz for ShelterBox.

ShelterBox wants to thank Dale for all of her ambitious contributions and the time she devotes to her role as an ambassador. Congratulations on all of your success we can’t wait to see what she will come up with next!
