Archives For July 2012

I volunteer a lot. No really, I mean….A LOT. It’s a fulltime gig some months!  So when my husband took on a new position at Northlands, signing the kids and I up to volunteer was a no-brainer.


Preparing flags for the Capital Ex Parade

Immediately I am impressed with the process…interviews, police checks…and assurance that my kids are in good hands while they volunteer.

Next: Orientation. You are not merely thrown into a venue and expected to help, you are introduced to and gain an understanding of the culture at Northlands.

At said orientation it becomes abundantly clear that while you have signed up to give to Northlands, they fully intend to give back…by means of food vouchers, free entrance to Capital EX, a volunteer gala…and more.  (insert me giving my kids a speech about doing something for someone without expectation of anything in return here)

For Capital EX Northlands has a variety of positions available.
