Expo 2020 - Volunteers | Carolinian Canada

Volunteer Opportunities

Join the Movement

Last year, Go Wild Grow Wild got a real boost from the community. Over 60 volunteers supported the expo with over half being local high school students! We value this support and look forward to gathering a great team again this year.

There are many opportunities to volunteer for Go Wild Grow Wild as the expo grows to a program throughout the year. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering! We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note that we are currently not accepting volunteer applications for the 2020 Expo, as it has been postponed.
