Being a volunteer member of the CRIS family is a unique experience; you will have fun, be challenged, contribute to your community in a meaningful way and help people with disabilities experience things they would not otherwise be able to. We provide training and support to volunteers interested with assisting on any of our day programs (kayaking, cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing). Experience with any activity is an asset, but not required.
We are also looking for skilled volunteers to assist in many areas of operation including: fundraising, administrative duties, vehicle repairs and maintenance, equipment repairs, etc.
If you have any specific skills please let them be known!
