Current Opportunities

NEAT Finds Sidewalk Sales – Various Saturdays
Needed: A couple of volunteers who would love to lend a hand at our summer sidewalk sales. No experience necessary, just an ability to keep calm and thrift on. Call the office 250-785-6328 or email info@neat.ca 

Home Hardware BBQ & Planter Painting – June 2
Don’t even try to say that three times fast! Our lovely friends at Home Hardware are throwing a BBQ as a fundraiser for NEAT! We are so blessed to have such great support. We need some extra hands to help paint/decorate planters and man the BBQ throughout the day. The whole thing gets started at 10am. 

Yard Waste Collections – Various Saturdays
Yard waste collections are back and better than ever. If you don’t mind getting dirty and take pride in making a difference, join us as we collect yard waste (it totally sounds weird, but it’s a lot of fun!).

NEAT Finds
Are you a thrift store connoiseur? NEAT Finds is always looking for volunteers to help sort, tag, and hang donations. No special arrangements required, just drop by during store hours.

Board of Directors
The NEAT Board of Directors is recruiting members. This commitment involves attending one meeting a month. The Board is looking for general members and a treasurer. If you are interested, please contact ed@neat.ca with your resume.

Garden Maintenance
NEAT maintains the school gardens at Bert Ambrose, Alwin Holland, Robert Ogilvie, Duncan Cran, and Central Schools in Fort St John, and the Tremblay garden at the Community Gardens in Dawson Creek. If you have some time to weed or water, we would be happy to have the help. This commitment is for 1+ hours per week and is flexible. For more information, please contact Karen@neat.ca.

Program Prep
Perfect for a crafter, we are looking for someone to help prep crafts, activities, and presentations ahead of time. This would be perfect for a parent, older students, or a retiree and will involve collecting and preparing supplies for use in upcoming events. This commitment is variable and would be approximately 2-5 hours as needed. We have an inclusive, family friendly office where small children are more than welcome.

Misc. Construction
On occasion (more frequently than you might think) we need shelving, storage, or other items created. If you’re handy and have a couple of hours here and there, you would be perfect for this role. For more information, please contact info@neat.ca.

 

*Because many of NEAT’s programs involve children, all volunteers interacting with the public must have a criminal record check completed which includes the vulnerable sector. Record checks are free for volunteers through the local RCMP.
