Become a ShelterBox Ambassador

Engage and activate across every level - fundraising, awareness, and action

As a ShelterBox Canada Ambassador you provide the link between people who need support and those who want to give it. Ambassadors are the face of ShelterBox Canada in their community and aim to raise awareness and funds about our work. We’re looking for people who are friendly, reliable, self-driven and are good communicators.

Above all, you need to have an enthusiasm for spreading the word and rallying support for ShelterBox Canada within your local community. Whether Ambassadors are making presentations, hosting events, or simply chatting up ShelterBox at the office, these volunteers are the heart of our organization.

Volunteering for ShelterBox gives me the opportunity to help out in a cause that I truly believe in, making sure that no family goes with out shelter.
