Become a volunteer

Volunteer opportunities for Doors Open Waterloo Region include:

  • leading tours of the featured buildings
  • greeting visitors
  • counting the total number of visitors
  • photographing the event
  • animating a site with music, theatre or children's activities.

Free training and orientation, including information on the history of your assigned building, will be provided. We require a four-hour commitment on the day of the event.

And if you are a member of a local arts, heritage or service organization, consider volunteering as a group. We will do our best to place your group at one location, or at locations close to each other.

Contact our Doors Open coordinators for more information on volunteering.
