Become a Volunteer
Support our children’s educational journey!

Our Volunteer Process      If you are interested in volunteering in our Biidaaban Kinoomaagegamik, Shki Waase Aaban Binoojiinh Gamik or Waawaasnoode Learning Centre but are unsure how to go about it, start with these three simple steps: 

1. Find an opportunity that suits you Your first step involves self-exploration. Look for roles that suit you best in relation to your personality, interests, expertise and schedule. 
2. Explore your options Once you’ve mapped out your volunteer expectations, make an appointment with the principal of the Sagamok educational institution you’re interested in volunteering with. 
3. Join your school community Now that you’re ready to become involved in your school, it’s time for a simple volunteer screening process. To ensure the safety of our students, staff and schools, volunteers may be required to provide a criminal record check and/or personal references. 


We always welcome volunteers from parents, extended families and community members who want to help support our students. Whether you want to give an ongoing commitment (like coaching, mentoring, tutoring, after school programming) or here and there when you can at one-time events (like supervising class trips, cooking for a fundraiser), there’s a place in Sagamok’s schools for just about everyone.
