Wellness ProgramBy developer
The Friends’ Wellness Program continues to offer exciting opportunities for people to support their physical/social/emotional/spiritual wellness while enjoying the beauty and serenity of Fish Creek Provincial Park. Volunteers can be involved in either or both of the roles we have available. Please note that current Police Information and Vulnerable Sector Checks are required for first year volunteers in both positions:
- Wellness Program Assistant – These volunteers support the Wellness Program Instructors in our yoga, Spring Forest Qi Gong and meditation offerings by managing participant sign in and payment, and connecting with the public about the different programs and events offered by the Friends. Wellness Assistants also receive the added benefit of being able to participate in some sessions at no cost! These sessions run between June and September. Click here to view the Wellness Assistant Job Description.
- Good Grief Companion – Volunteers take on the role of Companions in our newest Wellness Program offering, Good Grief: Nature Walking Through Grief and Loss. Companions walk alongside people who are moving through significant transitions in life and who can benefit from the healing that nature and this shared experience can bring. This eight-week walking program will happen in May and September. Click here to view the Good Grief Companion Job Description.
We are actively recruiting for our Wellness Program in 2019!
