KidSport North Shore (North & West Vancouver) exists because of our incredible partners and enthusiastic volunteers. Whether you’re an avid sports fan, believe that health and wellness are critical to childhood success, or simply want to make your community a better place, we want you on our team.
We are continually searching for more volunteers to assist in a number of essential roles, in a variety of fun events and activities throughout the year. Opportunities range from one-off support at our fundraising events, to strategic positions on our chapter committee. You can even volunteer to plan your own fundraiser, and really get into the spirit of KidSport!
We are currently looking for volunteers in the following roles:
- Social Media
We are looking for someone to oversee and manage our social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Other).
- Website Design
We are looking for someone to oversee and manage our website.
With the impacts of COVID-19, there’s an increased number of financially challenged families requiring support so their children can play a season of their sport, or some version of it. Consequently, we’d like to add a new member to KSNS, who will work with other Board members to reach out to prospective corporate donors, to ensure there’s funding available to support the increased demand of grant applications.
- Grant Writing
We are looking for someone to research appropriate grants and apply.
KSNS serves the North Shore community from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay, and events occur within this region. And there is much to be done on-line which means that we mainly work from our homes and with Zoom calls and through a common G-mail system we maintain contact – posting drafts, requesting feedback, posting final versions, etc. Through this collaborative and inclusive approach, all of us on the KSNS Team contribute to ensuring all NS kids get to play their game. Our target is to host two annual events: during the springtime The KSNS Duck, Dive and Dodge Dodgeball Challenge, and n the fall The KSNS Gift of Sport event and a raffle / sweepstakes event.
1 Board meeting a month – 7pm – 9pm / or Zoom meeting and helping out at events ( 2- 3 per year)
