As a volunteer-run organization, volunteers are the backbone of the Ontario Alliance of Climbers. There are countless opportunities for you to give back to the Ontario climbing community through the OAC; whether you’re looking to participate through event volunteering, running special projects, or keeping the organization running, there’s always a project to crush!

Volunteers that help keep our organization afloat have:

  • An intense passion for outdoor climbing;
  • Integrity, a self-starter attitude, and a passion for managing their own projects;
  • Excellent project management, communication, organizational and problem-solving skills;
  • The desire to work in a collaborative team setting; and,
  • An interest in attending bi-monthly volunteer meetings.

OAC volunteers have the opportunity to build skills and give back to their fellow climbers, participate in volunteer appreciation events, and build strong bonds within the Ontario climbing community.

If you would like to get involved, please check out the opportunities listed below!  You can also fill out our General Volunteer Application, and we’ll be in touch when opportunities arise that fit your areas of interest.

Looking for: Newsletter Editor

Do you have a passion for communication?  Are you able to take a season’s worth of updates and pare it down to a few concise, fun, yet informative sentences?  And have you been itching to see the OAC be better at updating the community?

Come help be part of the solution!  We’re looking for an editor to compose quarterly newsletters about what’s going on in the Ontario climbing scene.  The ideal newsletter editor will have experience with HTML/CSS and MailChimp, a desire to connect with the climbing community, and a self-starter mindset.  You’ll be responsible for attending monthly board meetings, soaking up information, and then crafting communication once per quarter to encapsulate all the relevant happenings that the community may have missed.  We’ll also look to you for insight on what you think the community needs from us!

This is a role that is best served by someone long term, as we’d like to have a regular cadence and voice.  If you’d like to help move the Ontario climbing community forward, send email to for more information!
