As Global Gathering Place prepares for the arrival of a large number of Syrian refugees, volunteers are needed now, more than ever.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are many ways for volunteers to get involved at the Global Gathering Place.
The Global Gathering Place offers a variety of programs, many of which benefit from having volunteers. Talk to our staff about becoming an assistant on a regular basis for the CHEF, Coffee and Conversation, Children’s Program, Homework Help, Life Skills, BrightStart!, or Family, Fun, and Fit program.
Offer newcomers one-on-one support
Help newcomers improve their reading and writing skills one-on-one or in small groups. Many of our newcomers could also use the advice and wisdom of local residents as they search for their first job in Canada.

Planning special events
If you would prefer to make a once per year short-term commitment, our ethnic suppers, annual garage sale, or annual fundraising dinner may be a volunteer commitment for you! These events always require energetic people to assist with planning.
If you have marketing skills that you would be willing to share, the Global Gathering Place needs your enthusiasm and talent! Producing promotional videos, helping with advertising campaigns, uploading photo galleries to our website, staffing booths at trade shows, and submitting articles and ideas for our newsletter are some of the ways volunteers help with marketing.
Board of Directors
If you have skills that could strengthen our Board and contribute to our diversity, we invite you to apply to serve on our Board. You need to be able to commit between 40 and 60 hours per year and should have knowledge and experience that will help us to improve the governance of the Global Gathering Place. The GGP Board is determined by a membership vote at its Annual General Meeting.
Currently, we have no vacancies. However, these do arise from time to time. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please complete our Board Application and submit it through our website. Alternatively, you can print out and fill in a form and drop it off or mail it to our main office at 100 5th Avenue North, Saskatoon SK S7K 2N7.
Global Gathering Place offers training and a friendly group of people to work with. Simply contact the office and make an appointment if you are interested in volunteering.
