Volunteer

A lot of the volunteer opportunities at PRO Kids are in-office planning or helping at events. There is no direct programming with children at PRO Kids! If you want to get involved in our events, or in planning, contact us at prokids@thunderbay.ca.


Fundraising committee

Our fundraising committee is a very active and fun group that meets every 2-3 months. Together we plan and organize events, sell merchandise, make approaches to businesses and we're always thinking of creating new fundraising ideas.
