Bring the whole team!
Our Corporate and Group Volunteer Program, Be a Hero, gives your workgroup an opportunity to make a difference in your community and gain a greater understanding of some of the critical social issues in Calgary.
Be a Hero volunteer opportunities provide your team with the chance to make an impact in the lives of the children, youth and families that we serve each day. These opportunities are a great way for your team to unveil their inner superheroes, build team morale and make a lasting impression on our programs. We’ll even give your group social media shout outs and recognition in our publications highlighting your community engagement.
