One of KidSport BC’s longest running chapters, KidSport Burnaby, is actively seeking some passionate new volunteers to help get kids off the sidelines and into the game! Since 2001, KidSport Burnaby has been helping local kids get involved in organized sport by providing grants to families facing financial challenges to help with the costs of sport registration fees.

Each year KidSport Burnaby assists roughly 300 kids with approximately $50,000 in grants.

As the demand for KidSport assistance continues to grow, not only in Burnaby but across the province, the need for more volunteers with a variety of skills also becomes more critical.

We are currently seeking volunteers who would be willing to assist with the following tasks:

  • Fundraising – Are you well connected in the community? Would you be willing to reach out to local business, third party events to make KidSport Burnaby their charity of choice? Do you have some creative ideas for revenue generation?
  • Application Processing – We are looking for volunteers to manage our application process, review applications for complete information and approve them for funding.
  • Treasurer – Do you have basic accounting skills and have an interest in helping KidSport manage a relatively simple banking process?
  • Social Media – We’re looking for someone proficient in social media… Twitter/Facebook/Instagram to help us get our message out

If you are interested in being part of a tremendous cause and helping kids get involved in sport, please contact Pete Quevillon at pete.quevillon@sportbc.com or 604-333-3430
