Hello Prospective Volunteers
We are always in need of volunteers to help organize and enhance our programs throughout the year. We aim for a two to one Instructor to student ratio and take in up to 60 Students. Many volunteers have told us that becoming an instructor has made a profound impact on their lives. They feel fulfilled with the experiences they have with their students. Volunteers feel great satisfaction with the improvements their students make during the season.
On hill, volunteers are needed as organizers, instructors, teaching assistants and guides. CADS Edmonton will provide volunteer instructor on hill training in instruction techniques for the various disciplines of disabled skiing. This occurs primarily at our training weekend prior to the season and continues during the season at Monday night training sessions at Rabbit Hill. In addition to local training, CADS-Edmonton encourages instructors to pursue CADS certification through courses offered either locally or in other zones (financial assistance toward attending such courses may be offered upon approval by the Edmonton Board).
Non-skiing volunteers in snow boots can assist instructors and supervisors on the bunny slopes. Volunteers are indispensable when assisting in the lodge and helping organize fun events at the hill.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS: You can assist with program planning and administration by participating as a member of the CADS-Edmonton Board of Directors.
Help CADS Recruit
As an incentive to bring in new volunteers we are asking that returning volunteers bring a friend, co-worker or a family member to our registration night. If they become a volunteer instructor for our upcoming season, you will be entered into a draw.
