Serving the Home Education community.

Volunteers Make a Difference!

"The world is hugged by the faithful arms of volunteers" - anonymous.

Consider taking a volunteer shift at the AHEA Trade Fair to give our home education community an extra big hug!

 We can only have a successful event with your help and we have several positions you can serve in.  Most shifts are just a few hours long so you can have plenty of time to enjoy the Trade Fair. There are some positions that are also great for teens 13+.

All volunteers who serve will be entered in to win 4 tickets to the West Edmonton Mall Waterpark or Galaxyland (your choice)!!

*Shifts up to 4 hours earn 1 entry, shifts 5 to 8 hours earn 2 entries. Draw will take place after the Trade Fair ends and the winner will be notified via call, text, and/or email.
