Opportunities for Parents and Community Members
Volunteer at a school
Contact your school's office for ways that you can volunteer to help. If you have special interests or expertise you'd like to share with your child's class or school - for example gardening - let your school's administration know.
Be a volunteer language interpreter
We need parents or others who can speak and read in English and another language, and who are interested in acting as volunteer interpreters for parent-teacher conferences and other events.
Find out more about District Volunteer Interpreters Program at the 'Newcomer Welcome Centre', located at Moberly Elementary, 1000 East 59th Ave. Find us on Facebook.
Opportunities for Students
Become better informed about what your City government is doing by getting involved with the City of Vancouver Youth Outreach Team, and let the City know what you think! Take advantage of your opportunity to telephone Council members, send letters or e-mails, or speak at City Council meetings. Watch Council meetings on your computer, at your convenience. Get involved in all kinds of forums, events and meetings. And have your say in municipal election years - vote!
