Petitcodiac, New Brunswick

SOOP Ten Thousand Villages-PMC

-- Petitcodiac, New Brunswick

Flexible term
Ages 25+



Every autumn the Petitcodiac Mennonite Church organizes Ten Thousand Villages Festival sales in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. There is also a warehouse located in Petitcodiac with a small store front. Volunteers spend part of the week working in the warehouse loading, unloading, pricing and organizing products. They spend every weekend on the road (three-four days at a time) in rental trucks, going to sale sites, setting up, selling, and packing up the products with the help of local volunteers. Sales are sponsored by many denominations across the Maritimes with volunteers being billeted at each sale location. These positions are ideally suited for pairs, although individuals are also welcome. Previous Ten Thousand Villages or retail experience is a great asset and volunteers must be able to work independently and make decisions on their own. Laptops are brought to each sale, so volunteers must have some comfort with computers. Volunteers also need to be physically healthy and at least one person in each pair will need to be able to lift and carry boxes up to 15kg. They should enjoy travel and working with other people. Please note these are full-time positions (40hrs per week, including driving time). Lodging: Apartment-style lodging plus stipend is provided. Meals are on your own.
