*Operation Trackshoes –  A sports festival for citizens of BC who have a developmental disability.  Our primary need is for counsellors.  We are looking for approximately 250 volunteers to be Operation Trackshoes counsellors. An OT counsellor is assigned to one or more competitors and provides friendship and guidance in very much the same way as a camp counsellor would. We provide all the necessary training – no special skills are needed. We always have a competitor wait list so your participation will mean that at least one additional person will be able to come to OT.   http://www.trackshoes.ca/volunteers_needed.html
