Student Opportunities

The Faculty of Fine Arts often receives alerts and requests by businesses, clubs, and other organizations seeking students for both employment and volunteer opportunities.  Check back to this page often - it will be updated throughout the year with each new opportunity as we receive it. 
Please note - these opportunities will only be posted for the length of time they will be accepting applications.  If an opportunity is no longer listed, it's no longer available.

ALL

  • Permanent Volunteer Posting  

In 2014, the Galt Museum and Archives welcome 45,779 visitors through the doors of the old Galt Hospital. Of these visitors, 3125 of them came in to view the coulees or to check out the new items in the Museum Store.

Without the help of volunteers, the Galt couldn’t reach as many visitors as we do! The Museum Store utilized 18 volunteers in 2014 who contributed a combined 167 hours. We couldn’t do the things we do without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers!

Now, this is where you come in! We are looking for positive and upbeat volunteers to join our Visitor Services crew! We’re going to need your help assisting customers in the Museum Store and providing basic interpretation of the Galt grounds and exhibit. Other tasks may include completing Visitor Surveys, answering phones, assisting with inventory, stocking shelves and more! We’re hoping that with your help, the Museum Store will continue to grow and strive!

If you like what you hear, have any questions, or would like a little more information, please feel free to contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Chris Roedler, at christopher.roedler@galtmuseum.com or at (403) 320-4219. And don’t you worry, any training will be provided. We can’t wait to hear from you!

ART

  • Mural project!  St. Therese Villa is looking for student volunteers to paint a pastoral mural on one or more of the walls in their dementia unit.  If anyone would like to step forward as an individual or as a group, please contact Christey-Ann directly at christey-ann.veldman@covenanthealth.ca  Please note that artists will need to provide some examples of their past work.  Also, sketches of the proposed murals and an estimated supplies budget would be expected prior to the project’s start.
  • Good Samaritan Park Meadows Village and Cottages is a Supportive Living environment that houses 76 residents living with dementia. In an effort to create a friendlier environment for our dementia residents, staff at the care home are looking at how painting doorways can help. Currently, each doorway is exactly the same and it is our hope that by creating a special doorway for each resident it will help them identify their room and make the area more visually pleasing.  If you are interested in Art Therapy, this would be an excellent way to be introduced to an area where therapies are used daily.  To find out more about this project, or to volunteer as part of the applied studies program, please contact Leslie Jastrau at ljastrau@gss.org or at 403-328-9404 Ext. 53228 or register at www.gss.org.

The Terry Fox Run is unique in that it is entirely volunteer driven. There is no participant registration fee, minimum pledge, or corporate sponsorship associated with this event. As of 2017, Lethbridge has raised $351,003.50 through the annual Terry Fox Community Runs to continue The Terry Fox Legacy. Without the help of volunteers, the Terry Fox Community Run would not be possible. We are looking for people to donate their time as face painters for the duration of the event on September 16. This is a fantastic opportunity for students looking to gain experience with children and showcase their creativity. With the help of volunteers, the Terry Fox Run will continue to grow and raise money for cancer research.
