Variety Manitoba's Bike Camp

Are you looking for volunteer opportunities for your Students? Variety’s Bike Camp is BACK for 2024 and volunteers are needed.

The 2-week Bike Camp teaches 80 children ages 8 and up living with a disability to ride a 2-wheel bike independently. Over the course of Camp riders transition from specialized equipment to a 2-wheel coaster bike as they learn the skills needed to balance and steer a bike on their own.

Students can volunteer as an individual, with their family, with friends, as a student group or with co-workers for an employee gives back program. All opportunities are available.

From July 1st – July 5th and July 8th – 12th, 2024 volunteers are needed to follow their rider who will drive back and forth inside an arena and outside in a parking lot. The volunteer spotters are needed to encourage the child, provide support and ensure the child does not fall. 

Each child/rider needs 2 volunteer spotters to support them during their time at the Bike camp.

Each session is 75 minutes. The first session of the day begins at 8:30 am and the last session of the day begins at 3:35 pm.

Spotter Volunteer Role Description:  

  • Volunteers must be at least 15 years old
  • Volunteers are requested to attend a 45-minute orientation session on the Sunday prior to their shift(s) – this is also available virtually.
  • Volunteer spotters are asked to walk/jog/run alongside a rider as they are learning to ride a bike during a 75-minute session (with short breaks). You will provide encouragement and physical support, as needed.
  • We encourage volunteer spotters to commit to attending all 5 days of camp for the same session(s) if possible. These children bond with their assigned volunteer(s) and rely on the same person to be there to support them each day of camp. If you cannot commit to 5 days, you can sign up for less or more session times. There is no minimum requirement.

Anyone can sign up for week 1 session times here: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/VarietytheChildren/volunteerbc.html

Anyone can sign up for week 2 session times here: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/VarietytheChildren/volunteerbc2.html

If you have any questions, please contact me via phone, text or email at any time. My number is 204-999-7973 or email atavares@varietymanitoba.com. I can also assist with signing up larger groups of people vs. everyone individually applying online.

Bursary Program with the Manitoba Government

The Province of Manitoba’s Health Protection Unit is currently undergoing a recruitment drive to attract students to the field of Public Health Inspections.  Manitoba Health Inspectors are an integral part of the public health team and enforce a variety of Public Health legislation. Public Health Inspectors work in the following areas:

  • Food safety
  • Drinking water safety
  • Recreational water safety
  • Care facilities
  • Food safety and sanitation requirements at special events and festivals
  • Communicable disease control
  • Emergency response team
  • Smoking and vaping in enclosed public settings
  • Air quality
  • Health promotion
  • Health hazard management

As part of Government’s strategic plan to address the vacancy  and retention issue of our skilled workforce, they have created a Public Health Inspector Bursary program and offering it to Manitoba university students with a science background.  Students who maybe interested in this career path and willing to go outside of the province to obtain their degree in Environmental Health, namely to Concordia University in Edmonton Alberta, are encouraged to apply here https://jobsearch.gov.mb.ca/search. The bursary covers the cost of the program and the cost of housing for the student while away.  The student upon return to Manitoba will be guaranteed a full time position with Manitoba Health Seniors and Long-Term Care.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could inform your students about this opportunity and post the information on your career website.  A copy of the bursary posting is attached.

For more information about the career of Public Health Inspections, please visit the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors website at www.ciphi.ca.
