There’s still time to Become a Volunteer


Everything you need to know as a Games Volunteer, you’ll find in our Handbook.  Volunteer Handbook FINAL (July 21) 


Volunteers are still needed

URGENT! We still need about 20 volunteers to help with breakfast on Sunday morning. Just four hours of your time (5:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.) would ensure that our athletes get their first meal of the day in a timely way, preparing them for any final events.  Additional help for the other days would also be greatly appreciated.  **

Yes, there is still time for you to volunteer and be a part of our valuable team of volunteers. Check the list below for a number of the opportunities that are still available.  Thank you for volunteering and welcome to the 2014 Alberta Summer Games volunteer team!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How old do you have to be?
A: Age depends on the task.  Younger children, ages 6-7 could help by keeping the venues clean and free of misplaced (or littered) recycling and garbage.  Children, nine years and up can help their parents clean trays in the food centre.  Teenagers are encouraged to register as volunteers, and if a certain area requires someone to be 18+, we will find a different area for you.
Q: Can I increase my sponsorship amounts by committing volunteer hours on behalf of our company?
A: Yes you can!

Q:  Do you have any opportunities for groups to volunteer together?
A:  There is a few opportunities left that can accommodate a group working closer together.

Q:  Do you have a volunteer recruitment poster I can share?
A:  Yes we do.  Request a poster at volunteer@2014airdriegames.ca.

Q: Do all volunteers get into all events at no charge?
A: No they don’t.  We would love to accommodate such a thing, but due to space and other commitments, volunteers will have to purchase opening ceremony tickets and most others are open. If you have a specific venue or event, please ask.  Tickets for the opening ceremonies go on sale June 23, 2014.

Q:  Who do I contact if I have registered but haven’t heard from anyone regarding my position?
A:  Contact Chelsie Dowler at volunteer@2014airdriegames.ca.
Please email all other questions and inquiries to volunteer@2014airdriegames.ca
