Volunteer

Wildwood is an outstanding community to live in – and we truly are a community where neighbours not only know their neighbours, they help out in the community! Without the volunteers that coordinate and give their time and efforts to events and programs in the neighbourhood, we wouldn’t live in such an engaging and fun Wildwood.

With the new board structure, and long-time volunteers hanging their hats, we need new people to help out with some volunteer positions. These volunteer job descriptions were created with the knowledge that smaller workloads make for

Happier volunteers – many hands make light work, as they say. The more Wildwoodians that step up to help out, the easier it will be to continue the many great programs in the community!
