Teacher with students

Volunteer

It takes a huge team of dedicated, knowledgeable volunteers to help us reach students and classrooms across Manitoba. The need for more programs and new resources continues to grow and so does our need for volunteers!

Make a difference in ag education

Volunteering for Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba is an opportunity for you to:

  • Help Manitoba students understand and appreciate where their food comes from
  • Share your agriculture story
  • Introduce students to the people working hard to grow Manitoba’s largest industry
  • Show students how agriculture impacts their own lives
  • Inspire the next generation of leaders, innovators and consumers by helping them explore ag-related careers

How you can help

There are all kinds of ways you can get involved, including:

  • Leading students through interactive, agriculture-based learning activities in the classroom – for instance, during Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM)
  • As a Station Facilitator or Class Host at one of our Amazing Agriculture Adventure events.
    When a teacher asks for a classroom presentation on a specific agriculture-related topic, we look to the experts in that area for help – which could be you!

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM)

CALM is a hands-on program that brings agriculture into classrooms and encourages students to learn about and celebrate Canadian agriculture.

Every year, we need a team of over 150 volunteers to meet the demand for CALM. If you are passionate about sharing your story and want to present to students in the classroom, we will take as many presentations as you're willing to offer.

French AND English speaking volunteers needed!
