EMBERS is a community economic development charity located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Since 2001, EMBERS has helped thousands of people facing barriers to work lead productive, fulfilling lives by offering economic and employment opportunities – including job placements, training and support.

Event & Role Summary

The EMBERS 9th Annual Charity Golf Tournament will be held on July 13 at Tsawwassen Springs Golf Course. Proceeds raised from this charity fundraising event will be going to support EMBERS’ programs, which helps low-income people access meaningful work. It’s our biggest event of the year, and we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help pull it off.

Between 12 pm and 6 pm, we will need activity leaders at each golf hole who will be responsible for leading activities for golfers. Activities will include contests and games like ‘guess the amount of golf balls’ and ‘marshmallow chipping’. Some volunteers will also be supervising tasting stations, where food or beverages will be distributed to golfers.


  • Greet golfers in a warm and friendly manner
  • Give instructions to golfers
  • Ensure golfers are having a positive experience
  • Assist with set up and tear down

EMBERS’s Volunteer Opportunities

You nourish your soul by fulfilling your destiny, by developing the potential that the soul represents. When you fulfill your soul’s destiny, you will feel “right.” Conversely, when you ignore your soul’s destiny, when you get caught up in your own self-interests and forget to care for others, you will not feel “right.” Instead, you will feel empty and unfulfilled. During these times, you are neglecting your soul–you are depriving it of nourishment. When I talk to people who feel this emptiness and lack of fulfillment, I recommend they find a source of balance in their lives. I suggest they find a way to “give back” to the world in order to feel a sense of completeness.
