Volunteers are a precious resource

Parkinson Association of Alberta is growing in leaps and bounds across the province! Every day more and more individuals, families and professionals turn to us, in need of our services. It’s only with the assistance of volunteers such as yourself that we can rise to meet these challenges.

Volunteers are vital to Parkinson Association of Alberta. They dedicate their time, energy and passion to help make a difference not only within our organization, but in the Parkinson’s community as well!

Our volunteers are clients, care partners and families, students, retirees, individuals and companies who believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of those facing Parkinson disease. At Parkinson Association of Alberta you are not just another volunteer, but a vital member of our exceptional team!

While we have many opportunities to volunteer year-round, our current need is for reception/ administrative help in our Calgary (#310, 6807 Railway St SE) and Edmonton (11209 – 86 ST NW) offices.

Volunteers in this position are key; ensuring that people living with Parkinson disease and their families feel welcomed and supported at first contact with our Association. We are looking for volunteers to help cover approximately 20-25 hours/week. This position includes reception and light administrative duties (ie: answering phones, filing, data entry, etc).
