Technical Volunteer   Kelowna  Lake Country  Peachland  Westside 
TETRA Society of North America
"People are not limited by disability, but rather by obstacles and barriers in their environment.”  
 
It’s a simple concept: rather than focusing on an individual’s disabilities, look instead at the things that are stopping them from doing what they want to do, and find a way to overcome these barriers. That always was the philosophy of Tetra founder Sam Sullivan. It explains how Tetra works, and how our volunteers think.  
 
If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you. 
 
Technical volunteers do not have to be engineers – just practical-minded people with a mechanical aptitude. Each Tetra Chapter should ideally have a mix of skills...woodworkers, electricians, millwrights to experts in metalwork or fiberglass, to just your average handy person, we can use your assistance in whatever capacity you can give. Some Volunteers are only on when needed, others like to be super involved...it’s up to you, give us try, and you’ll wonder what took you so long to find this perfect volunteering opportunity. The amount of commitment is flexible, our group will work with you, cause that’s what we do!
Volunteer Fixers   Kelowna  Lake Country  Peachland  Westside 
Regional District of Central Okanagan, Regional Waste Reduction Office
Are you handy with a wrench, great at sewing or bike repair, or with fixing small appliances or electronics? Want to volunteer a few hours of your time to share your special skills with others? If so, the Regional Waste Reduction Office wants to hear from you as it gears up to host its next Repair Cafes at Okanagan College on April 28 and November 17th, 2018. 
 
The Repair Café is a free event where people who have things to be repaired can come and learn how to repair them from a fix-it specialist—for free! It’s a fun event, celebrates re-use and recycling, and you get to hang out with like minded volunteer fixers. If you’re able to fix one or two things or a whole bunch of things email recycle@cord.bc.ca, or call the Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250. 
 
Please note that this event runs periodically throughout the year, so if the above noted date has passed, please call us and we will be happy to have you join us for the next event date!
