Here are a few volunteer opportunities over the next five weeks! From Lights of Wonder Greeters to Gingerbread Ambassadors, there's something for everyone.
DVBA’s Lights of Wonder
As the festive season draws closer, there are a number of wonderful volunteer opportunities to explore in downtown Victoria. We are thrilled to be launching Lights of Wonder in Centennial Square. This free, fully accessible, all-ages experience weaves lights and arches and pathways to wander in wonder with your family, friends, love, self—even your dog! The joy begins on Friday, December 13 and will run from 4:00pm daily until December 30, 2019. Lights of Wonder is the DVBA and downtown Victoria businesses’ gift to all of us this year, next year and for years to come. But it doesn’t happen by magic, would you like to join us under this stunning canopy of lights? Volunteer with us. Apply online today. (Application deadline is November 29) We also have a volunteer FAQ here. Learn more at www.lightsofwonder.ca
