Are you, or do you want to become, a “human swiss army knife” that can be dropped into the heart of north-central Calgary to create change through spontaneous play? We have an opportunity for you to roll up your sleeves to create meaningful connections and a real impact within the community.

You will be required to plan and implement different unstructured play opportunities at a variety of locations throughout north-central Calgary. Through these play opportunities, you will engage with children and families, but also observe and document your learnings to support on-going research regarding health outcomes, community co-creation, and best practices.

This is a hybrid public health and social innovation project all facilitated through unstructured play. We are looking for diverse skill sets for our team, story spinners, master builders, child whisperers, magic makers, creative cats and everyone in between, so show us what you got!
