Morning shifts will run from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Afternoon shifts will run from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. There is a lunch break in between shifts, and orientation for all positions will be provided (Setup shifts are different; please see below). Volunteers who sign up for both AM+PM shifts will be provided with a free lunch (a $10 gift card to a restaurant of choice). Note: Families who volunteer will have their $75 Rental Fee refunded after completing of a 4-hour shift. You can have someone volunteer on your behalf! Please contact josh@youcanride2.ca ahead of time to let us know if you would like to choose this option. Location: The Goodwill Impact Center, 11415-168 St NW Edmonton. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we will not be able to offer food or snacks. Please bring your own bottle for water. Additionally, masks are required for all adults within the Impact Center, and we will supply hand sanitizer. Please complete the Covid-19 Prescreening Questionnaire (link in your volunteer confirmation email) on the same day of your shift to ensure you do not have any symptoms. As always, we at You Can Ride 2 (and the families) really appreciate your help and we look forward to seeing you soon!
