If you enjoy writing and are willing to share your experiences living the military lifestyle, you should blog for the Family Navigator website (www.familynavigator.ca). We are looking for people to write about their experiences with work-related separations, joining a new community, family with special or complex needs, and more.
Deployments happen frequently at CFB Esquimalt and that means that there are a lot of activities/workshops/groups that take place to support those experiencing a work-related separation. We could use your help providing childcare.
Become a vital part of a successful deployment by getting involved as a Family Network Volunteer. Have fun while making connections with your community. Enhance your group facilitation skills, provide information and support to your fellow military families while gaining experience with communications and organizing special events. Share your skills and knowledge. Interested? You will need approximately six hours per month. We need extra volunteers for all Family Networks to assist with activities, communications and planning.
We are currently seeking a primary Family Network representative for the following network:
- 443 Squadron
- HMCS Calgary
- HMCS Regina
- Terra Firma
Special events are ongoing throughout the year and always in need of support from volunteers. Jobs vary from planning committees to set-up/tear-down crews to event photographers. Come learn about event planning and execution while enjoying the fun and camaraderie of these special events. Help is needed with:
- Naden Band Christmas Concerts (CD sales) each December
- Father Daughter Sweetheart Dance
- Pacific Women’s Day
- Formation Fun Day
- Heroes Hockey Challenge
- Victoria Royals CF Appreciation Night
Do you have a talent or a passion you are willing to share with other people? Would you like to practice your facilitation skills and give 2-3 hours of your time to a group of eager learners? Some of the skills that are of interest: computer skills, photography, event planning, communication/workshop facilitation etc. The MFRC is looking for facilitators/trainers to provide learning opportunities/professional development to our valuable volunteers. Required commitment: 2-3 hour workshop time during an evening or Saturday, possible follow up sessions.
