Volunteer Opportunities in Woodpark
As you are aware our community is in a period of unprecedented change. In order to ensure that we continue to enjoy a high quality of life here in Woodpark, we need a strong, vibrant and diverse Community Association to make sure that the developments impacting our neighbourhood are appropriate and we can retain a strong sense of community.
The Woodpark Community Association is actively recruiting volunteers to fill at variety of roles.
We are looking for a volunteer(s) to develop, enhance and maintain the Woodpark website (Woodpark.ca) and email. If you have skills with WIX and MailChimp or with similar tools like WordPress or SquareSpace and are looking to contribute to your community, please let us know.
The Sustainability Subcommittee strives to promote a sustainable community, enabling residents to undertake projects to help the community reduce its environmental footprint, address climate change, and restore natural environments. The subcommittee is looking for a Chairperson and new subcommittee members.
Infrastructure and Development Subcommittee
This subcommittee monitors, reviews and intervenes on development, planning and transportation proposals impacting Woodpark. If you have expertise or interest in infrastructure and development issues and would like to participate on this subcommittee please let us know.
The Events and Outreach subcommittee hosts a variety of events in the community throughout the year. These include Park Clean ups, the mural painting at Flower and Ancaster, the Pumpkin Carving Contest, the Lantern Walk and the Holiday Gift Giving project. If you are interested in helping out with these and other events please let us know. High school students are welcome to volunteer at Woodpark events and can receive volunteer hours needed for their diploma.
