Assignment 5 - Volunteer Poster (Due Week 10)

If you wish to gain experience in a particular career field, or want to know more about a career, you may want to consider volunteering. 

Step 1

Go to the Help Guide webpage and look over the information on volunteering. 

Make a list of 5 benefits for the person doing the volunteering and 5 benefits for the community.  Keep this information handy as you will need some of it in your poster.

Step 2

Now go to the Volunteer Alberta page. Find a centre near you and go to that page.  Take some time to look at the volunteer opportunities available.  If you do not find any that are interesting, then go to the page for either Calgary or Edmonton and look at the ones there.  Choose one volunteer opportunity about which you will create a poster. 

Step 3

Create a poster in digital form to promote the volunteer opportunity.  You will need text and pictures(s).  Remember you want to appeal to people in junior high school with your poster and get them to volunteer.  Think back to the list of benefits you made earlier as it may help as well.

Step 4

Place your poster in the activity below.
