CADS – Edmonton Zone Student Volunteer Policy

CADS participant registration fees are highly subsidized through grants and fundraising events that take place throughout the year.  CADS Edmonton is a volunteer run organization therefore we need your support for a variety of program related activities.  As such, in order to continue offering high-quality, individualized ski and snowboard instruction at minimal rates, we require your volunteer efforts in some key areas. As a student participant, you will pay a volunteer fee of $100. At the end of the season, if you have fulfilled a volunteer role, CADS Edmonton will reimburse or provide a bursary for the following season. 

 Volunteer opportunities are added as they become available.
