Volunteering at Westfield

Volunteering at Westfield

Would you like to be part of the Volunteer team at Westfield? The first step is to complete an application form.  The screening process involves an interview and reference checks and an orientation to insure that there is a good fit and to introduce you to the Westfield experience.

Since the earliest years at Westfield, both staff and volunteers have worked hand in hand to build Westfield into the living history site that you see today. Westfield provides a wide range of volunteer experiences. Families, youth and seniors can engage in short or long term assignments.  You may be involved in historic interpretation, sewing support, building maintenance, research projects, gardening or a host of other tasks. Volunteers are welcomed and treated as valued and integral members of the organizations human resources team whether they are working directly with the visiting public or behind the scenes contributing to the general operations of the site.

Volunteers with over 40 hours to the program receive a 40 plus membership card. This card permits free or discounted entry to many other Ontario attractions, admission to Westfield when you are not volunteering and the opportunity to purchase a significantly discounted HCA parks pass.

Please note: The minimum age to volunteer at Westfield without a parent or guardian is 16.  Children under 16 are welcome to volunteer in our family volunteering program. Click here for more information on Family Volunteering.
