Volunteer Openings

Join Our Family

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers in the Calgary area to help out at the House, our signature events and community activities. Volunteer opportunities range from short commitments of just a few hours at events to weekly recurring shifts at the House. Below you will find a list of openings for which we are currently recruiting volunteers.

Please note: We strive to provide all volunteers with meaningful opportunities that align with indicated areas of interest and personal growth. A police-check will be required for in-House volunteers.

Current Opportunities

Recreation Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to facilitate recreation activities such as crafts, games and themed events. As a rec volunteer, you will help run programming for children, teens and adults staying at Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta. Weekday morning and evening time slots are available. Those interested are asked to review the full volunteer role description and email stephaniem@rmhsouthernalberta.org to apply.


Home for Dinner Volunteers

Our Home for Dinner program provides delicious homemade meals to families staying at the House every day of the week. Perfect for those who enjoy cooking, this group activity is a volunteer opportunity and donation all in one!

Each group of up to eight people plans, purchases ingredients and prepares a meal for our families. Meals are made in our in-House kitchen and all cooking tools are provided. For our families, this eases the burden of preparing a meal after a long day at the hospital and provides some much-needed time to rest and recharge. Both dinner and brunch time slots are available.

To inquire about available dates, please contact Family Services. Please note that a representative from every new dinner group must attend a Home for Dinner Orientation.

Not interested in cooking? Contact our Family Services to learn more about purchasing a meal for delivery.


Event Volunteers

Volunteers provide support in a wide variety of roles at our signature and community fundraising events. These events include our annual Rock the House Run, illuminate Gala and Charity Golf Classic.


If you are interested in learning more or applying for one of our available volunteer opportunities, please contact Lynne Slawnych, Volunteer Liaison by email or call 403-240-3000 ext. 113.
