If you have a skill that can be used to improve the quality of someone’s life, that’s a privilege. Doing Tetra projects is not such a great sacrifice . . .

"It’s always rewarding to see someone using a project, when it improves the quality of their life.

“The amazing thing is that, when you volunteer for something like Tetra, you can always find other people to help out. If you do a project that needs upholstery, you find an upholsterer. I’m not a good welder, but I know guys that can do TIG welding. There’s always people willing to help.”

Tetra Vernon volunteer Randy Schellenberg









Technical Volunteer

Tetra chapters comprise a small group of technical volunteers, led by a coordinator.

We ask volunteers for up to 12 hours per month. All out-of-pocket expenses, such as materials and mileage, are reimbursed. Volunteers do not have to be engineers, although most are. All technical skills are appreciated to ensure a good cross-section of skills.

Job description/responsibilities

Time commitment           

Because each request is unique, the time required for each project varies.
