Volunteering at EPL is a life-enriching, rewarding experience, because supporting EPL supports the community we’re all a part of.
Our network spans across Edmonton, so we need and appreciate help with all kinds of tasks. We need volunteers for everything from the simple and technical, to the public and behind the scenes.
