Terra relies on volunteers, financial and in-kind donations to offer services and support our teen parents.
At Terra, our specialized team tailors programs and services to meet the needs of each teen parent. Always safe, never judgemental. Learn more about what we have to offer our young families.
Terra understands that our volunteers allow us to offer more opportunities, resources and support to our young parents, and that is why we work diligently to ensure we provide those interested with the best possible volunteering experience. Terra also understands and appreciates that it is important to fulfill the needs of volunteers. Volunteers from all walks of life serve at Terra: students, seniors, working parents, staff from corporations; and all seek to gain a positive experience.
At Terra, our Volunteer Coordinator meets personally with each volunteer, and regularly afterwards to ensure you are getting the most out of your act of kindness. Some of the things our Volunteer Coordinator will do for you are:
Terra has three sites where volunteer opportunities take place. Depending on the opportunity, placements can take place downtown at the main Terra office, at Braemar School, or at Brentwood House. We place volunteers based on their skill set and where we feel is the best fit for you. Applicants must be 18 or older, willing to attend an interview, provide references and complete a police and child welfare check.
If supporting teen parents in their efforts to be successful in raising healthy, resilient children and becoming contributing members of our community is important to you, we encourage you to contact us and begin your application process. At Terra, the value of your commitment is recognized not just by the organization, but by the families we serve. They truly are grateful for the additional support volunteers provide.
Our volunteer and community engagement program is generously supported by the Government of Alberta.
