Be a Play Champion at Calgary Public Library!
November 5 - September 1
All Day
Calgary Public Library

Calgary, Alberta
If you enjoy playing and interacting with children, talking with parents, have an interest in early education, and are outgoing and friendly, you may be interested in volunteering with this program! Our 'Play Champions' program is accepting new volunteers at several libraries around the city.

'Play' sets the foundation for children's learning and development, and Play Champions (volunteers) encourage play in children aged 0-5. Volunteers interact with children and families in the Library's early learning spaces by setting up and running activities, games and challenges provided by staff, and clean and organize toys in the space. Volunteers also ensure everyone is playing safely, and that the areas are tidy and free of tripping hazards. Applicants need to be able to bend, sit on the floor, and stand for extended periods.

A two-hour training session will be offered prior to starting with the program.

This program runs on an ongoing basis. Ideally, volunteers would commit to at least one shift on a weekly basis for four months.
