Additionally, we have temporary committees that run seasonally alongside our summer program:

  • On-Call Advisory Committee - provides management team with additional support and advice with situations that arise in the summer program. This committee includes doctors, alumni, social workers, and other experts & community members
  • On-Call Driver Committee - a volunteer network of drivers who support our trips in case of non-emergency evacuation from trip. Drivers must have a G-Class or greater license, a good driving record and some availability during the summer. O n-call drivers will be rarely if ever called upon to drive in the summer.

Finally, there are other committees and working groups that Project Canoe runs that support other projects. Examples include special event planning, fundraising campaigns, and so on.


We ask our all potential Board members to serve on one of our working Board committees for 3-6 months to assess mutual interest in moving onto the Board of Directors. Download the Board member job description for more information.
