VolunteerING

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with Harbour City Bears, the bear community, getting to know people and help our community at the same time.  There are lots of different ways to volunteer with HCB. You can help out at one of our events, with fundraising, or with the administration of the club. Event volunteers help with setting up, checking tickets, or any of the heaps of tasks that go into making our bear events successful. Volunteers at ticketed events also get free entry to the event.

It’s easy to volunteer with HCB, click on the links to the right.

BEAR BUDDIES

Bear Buddies is another great way to get involved with Harbour City Bears on another level.

Bear Buddies are volunteers who use their time to ensure people have access into the community.
