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.
‘It’s an incredible feeling to be able reach out and help people on the other side of the world in what is quite possibly the worst moment of their lives. That’s why I support ShelterBox.’
Pam Furnish, ShelterBox volunteer
As an Ambassador you will:
Build relationships with local organizations, groups, schools, etc. to encourage them to support ShelterBox
Organize for ShelterBox to be at local events
Speak at events and give presentations about the work ShelterBox does globally to ensure no family is without shelter
Identify and develop fundraising and promotional opportunities within your area
Activate in times of disaster – when major disasters strike, families need our help more than ever. During this time we need the support of our volunteers to share important updates about our current response. We need your support to share these urgent updates with your network and help us to raise funds and awareness while the disaster is in the media spotlight
The process to become an Ambassador starts with completing an application form. Upon receiving your application, you will be contacted by our Volunteer Program Coordinator.
Please note that to be a ShelterBox volunteer you must be over 18 years old and will need to submit a police background check.
