With more than 300 of acres of greenspace, gardens, and attractions from A to Zoo, there’s no shortage of volunteer opportunities at Assiniboine Park. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and work hand in hand with staff to preserve, protect and enrich the Park’s cherished character for the benefit of all citizens.

SUMMER STUDENT VOLUNTEERS are a valuable, seasonal part of the APC volunteer program. These volunteer use iPads to conduct visitor surveys to collect feedback that helps improve Assiniboine Park and Zoo. In return, this role provides students with valuable skills to enhance their resumés. Students can also earn the opportunity to volunteer in other areas, including on the Zoo Tram, on the DOMO Double Decker Bus in the Park, and at events including concerts and Movies in the Park!
GOODWILL AMBASSADORS are friendly volunteers who are visible in all areas of the Park and Zoo. They help people find their way and share information on Park and Zoo attractions, services and events.
Helping out with preschool programs and children’s camps in the Park and Zoo, PROGRAMMING ASSISTANTS lend a hand with class preparations and support program delivery.
