It took time and a lot of effort from a lot of people, but eventually I was sitting on a sailboat with the biggest smile on my face. It lifted me up, just to be meeting people and on the water again.”

Volunteer with Tetra

“People are not limited by disability, but rather by obstacles and barriers in their environment.”

It’s a simple concept: rather than focusing on an individual’s disabilities, look instead at the things that are stopping them from doing what they want to do, and find a way to overcome these barriers. That always was the philosophy of Tetra founder Sam Sullivan. It explains how Tetra works, and how our volunteers think.

Tetra is continually recruiting volunteers in every community across Canada and the United States. The organization needs ingenious people willing to take on new challenges.

We are looking for:

Technical Volunteers 

Technical volunteers do not have to be engineers – just practical-minded people with a mechanical aptitude. Each Tetra chapter should ideally have a mix of skills (some volunteers might be woodworkers, others might be experts in metalwork or fiberglass). more info  >

Chapter Coordinators

Tetra coordinators require a mix of marketing, communication, fundraising and administrative skills. The position involves networking with various agencies (to promote Tetra), liaising with clients and running volunteer meetings and some fundraising (with support from head office). Coordinators are needed to take over some existing chapters and to start new ones (with support). more info  >


We ask volunteers for up to 12 hours per month. All out-of-pocket expenses, such as materials and mileage, are reimbursed.
