Why people like you volunteer for your local snowmobile clubs:
In an increasingly complex world, VOLUNTEERING for your local snowmobile club provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friends and fellowship.
You will find instant friends in both your own community and elsewhere in the province.
VOLUNTEERING is fun! Your club projects are fun; social activities are fun; meeting new riding buddies and service to others is fun.
3. Business Development and Networking
Everyone needs to network. Snowmobile Clubs consist of a cross-section of every business in your community. Our members come from all walks of life. Clubs help one another, and collectively help others.
4. Personal Growth and Development
VOLUNTEERING with your local club continues to better one’s growth and education in human relations and personal development; motivating and leading others.
5. The Opportunity to Serve
This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a VOLUNTEER; the chance to do something for somebody else, sense the self-fulfillment that comes in the process and the return of that satisfaction to one’s own life.
What if I don’t have the time?
Really? You’d be surprised what can be accomplished in just one afternoon; every little bit adds up to a big difference. By pitching in for only a few hours at club activities like an event or riding your sled as a Trail Patroller, you’ll feel really good about yourself.
Testimonial: “I came out to lend a hand with trail work for a day and now have met new riding buddies” – Pete
What if I don’t know what to do or how to do it?
Not to worry. We’re used to people volunteering without trail or club operation experience or all the skills required. That’s why we have training available as you need it in a variety of formats: classroom, online or on the job.
Testimonial: “I work in the retail industry and the club matched my skills within the club and with a positive welcome” – Paul
What if They don’t need someone like me or my family?
Not a chance. Snowmobiling is a family activity where women, seniors, couples, youth and families continue to play a vital role in the operation of our clubs. We have great opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, folks just like you!
Testimonial: “My family is a snowmobile family so it came natural to us to help our local club as a family” – Christine
What if I haven’t been asked to help? Why wait to be asked?
Clubs always appreciate help. Sometimes they’re just too busy to ask, even when they really could use an extra hand or two. By taking the initiative to approach your club, you will be doing them a big favour and find yourself warmly welcomed to a great experience!
Testimonial: “I sledded for years and was amazed at the consistent; safe trail product and decided I too can help to keep our trails the best in Ontario” – Andre
