We’re always looking for volunteers at the BIZ to help with our numerous programs and events. It’s a fun way to meet people, acquire new skills and have fun while you’re at it!

Downtown Watch

Over 290 volunteers log over 1,000 hours a month, boosting the presence on the street and gaining valuable work experience—not to mention a shot at full-time employment, as most paid ambassadors are hired from volunteers. Volunteers include students from Northwest Law Enforcement Academy, Winnipeg High Schools, Red River College, University of Winnipeg, and CDI College.

Customer Service Program

We are always looking for volunteers for our Downtown Watch Customer Service Program. We continue to expand our program to include our more experienced, senior members of our community, along with people with disabilities and anyone interested in providing outstanding customer service. Responsibilities may include collaboration and distribution of print material, manning display booth for promotional or recruitment purposes, attending special events, identifying new businesses, liaison with public and BIZ membership, and much more.
