Volunteer for the Games

The Greater Vernon 2022 BC Winter Games will be held February 24-27 -- and we need you!

The young BC athletes that will attend the Games only have this opportunity because our community stepped up to host the Games - and we need community minded individuals to volunteer their time.

The Games tagline is VICTORY THROUGH ADVERSITY. This applies to both athletes and the organizing committee. These Games will be unlike any previous Games due to health restrictions but the Games will happen, with your support!

The benefits of volunteering range from meeting new people to connecting to your community and has positive rewards to your mental and physical well being.

Volunteer opportunities are plentiful with a wide variety of options. There is something for everyone whether you are young or young at heart. We will be gathering more than 1,500 volunteers to help with general task as well as taking on leadership roles. Our recruitment events started last spring and will continue for the next few months.  Look for us at Silver Star Light Up event, Vernon Viper Games, Farmer’s Markets, Schubert Centre Pancake Breakfasts.
