Fernie Inspire the Race to Empower operates on a volunteer basis. The society is run by the hard work and dedication of many volunteers. Thus, having a large volunteer base is an extremely important aspect of keeping our program growing and viable.

Our amazing team of volunteers helps with all aspects of the organization as instructors, on snow support, fundraising committees and more.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Program coordinators
  • Fundraising events
  • Griz Days Parade Float decoration
  • Advertising/Awareness
  • Board of Directors positions
  • Special event coordination
  • Various committee positions (website, equipment…)
  • Photographers/Videographer 
  • Ski instruction and guiding
  • On snow support (wearing a “caution” vest and skiing/snowboarding ahead of students, helping with equipment, etc)

Any additional skills and ideas are always welcome!

Volunteers have a responsibility to treat everyone fairly within context of their activity, regardless of gender, place or origin, colour, sexual orientation, religion, political belief, economic status or ability.
