New Year, new opportunity to volunteer at Westfield!

Every year volunteers at Westfield Heritage Village donate over 20,000 hours of time to connect our community to the people of the past. The over 40,000 visitors who experience the village annually are greeted by costumed volunteers who demonstrate the relevance of our heritage. Opportunities abound to be trained in a specific time or task and become a part of the historic presentation but there is so much more. When closed to the public the village is still a hive of activity. You might join one of the dynamic groups of volunteers who garden, sew, paint, build fences and protect the existence of over 35 historic structures.

Westfield volunteer Mara Dragomir says “Each volunteering experience at Westfield is unique and almost magical….one of my favourite moments is at the end of the day when volunteers meet and share reflections and sometimes the meals that have been prepared.”

Westfeld is currently seeking individuals to greet guests in costume or as non-costumed ambassadors helping families and visitors make the most of their visit. Students and others are welcome to participate during our popular special events parking cars and helping everyone get to their experience safely. Volunteer nature enthusiasts could treat guests with a guided glimpse of the over 500 acres of conservation property surrounding the village. Every Sunday and most holiday Mondays from March to October the village is open, providing an oasis for those in the surrounding urban areas.

Lead a game at the Ice Cream Carnival, bake bread in an 1860’s bake oven, tap a tree for sap, and experience the satisfaction of making a difference in the preservation of our cultural heritage.

Westfield has a volunteer base of 250 people which includes over 50 youth and children. There is a need for approximately 80 more historic interpreters and there are also a wide range of non-costumed opportunities. Families, youth, adults and seniors are all welcome to apply!

Location Westfield Heritage Village - 1049 Kirkwall Road, Rockton, Ontario
