Annual Volunteer Meeting

In January of each year all current and prospective Venture Outdoors volunteers gather together for our Annual Volunteer Meeting. The meeting includes presentations on Venture Outdoors, our plans for the upcoming year, and a chance to meet and socialize with other volunteers.

Volunteer Opportunities

We’re looking for people who are interested in sharing their outdoors enthusiasm with others and have the desire to lead, motivate, and manage groups in the outdoors. We offer opportunities to lead trips on established Venture Outdoor activities, or you can design a trip that matches your special interests. Review the Trip Leader Expectations to see what it takes to be part of this elite group of leaders. Learn More About Becoming a Volunteer Trip Leader.

Volunteers are needed to help at events like the Banff Mountain Film Festival, community festivals, and more! Opportunities include set-up and tear-down, staffing, raffle ticket and auction sales, and more.

We are always looking for help with data entry, membership mailings, and other projects around the office. If you have a few spare hours a week and can lend a hand, let us know and we’ll see if we have a project in the pipeline.

Do you have professional skills in finance, event planning, marketing, or fundraising? Consider joining our Board, Junior Board (for young professionals), or an Advisory Committee.

We utilize the help of interns throughout the year in programming, marketing, and more. Please visit our employment page for current internship opportunities.
