BECOMING A VOLUNTEER
Volunteers are an essential part of all our events, as well as the management of our organization. In fact, CPANL is fully operated by volunteers, and has been for much of its existence! If you are 15 years of age or older and residing in the St. John's CMA, we would love to hear from you.
To start the process of becoming a volunteer for CPANL, please download our Volunteer Application, print and fill it out, or fill it out electronically, and send it back to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to our mailing address:
Cerebral Palsy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador
P.O. Box 515 RPO Centennial St.
Mount Pearl, NL, A1N 2W4
We will contact you to let you know if your application has been approved. If it has, we will send you the rest of the forms necessary to complete your application. Please note that if your application is satisfactory, you will be required to present a Criminal Record Screening and Vulnerable Sector Check in order to move forward with the volunteer process.
Additionally, if you are looking to volunteer for a Board of Directors position, please note that the BoD application is different from the volunteer application. If you want to get involved with our BoD, send us an email to email@example.com.
TYPES OF VOLUNTEER POSITIONS
CPANL has provided many different programs and services in the past, and we hope to provide many more going forward, so for the most part, our volunteer jobs are quite variable and are given as the need arises. Listed below, however, are the general categories for which we regularly need volunteers (excluding board of directors):
- Special events
- Public awareness/advocacy
- Administrative support
- Tech support
- Planning committees
- Recreation programs
- Education programs
- Social gatherings
- Telephone surveys
Opportunities may be in-person or virtual depending on the task, but please note that only volunteers who have received at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine may participate in in-person volunteering activities at this time. This is because our organization caters to vulnerable populations at risk for contracting COVID-19.
