Join our incredible team and keep this highly regarded non-profit community event on top. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, register here.
Every year, our crew of over 100 Doors Open Guelph volunteers is nothing short of incredible. Welcoming locals and visitors from out of town, guiding them through the sites with tales of history, community and creativity, they make this free, entertaining and educational community event happen. And we couldn’t do it without you.
2016 is a big year for Doors Open Guelph. We have some fascinating sites opening their doors to the public again this year. Without additional volunteers in 2016, Doors Open just won't be the same. How could you help keep this event incredible?
Tour Guides of historical buildings and creative spaces
Greeters to meet the public and organize tour groups
Counters to assist the greeter and count participants
Sweepers to follow the tours and keep participants moving
Event Assistants to do anything from helping to deliver posters ahead of the event, to putting out event signs and supporting volunteers on event day. A car is a major asset, and we seriously appreciate help on wheels!
All volunteers will receive training at their assigned/chosen site on an evening in advance of the event. Training sessions are from 1-2 hours and volunteer shifts on event day are from 9:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. or 1 to 4:30 p.m. Event Assistants will work with staff to arrange duties specific to their availability and interest.
