I’m Thumbody Program Facilitation

We are currently recruiting volunteers for the I’m Thumbody Program for the 2022-2023 school year. I’m Thumbody is delivered to grade 3 students across PEI to teach children the importance of self-esteem and positive mental health. It is delivered over two 1-hour classroom engaging sessions to help the student recognize their uniqueness, identify their emotions and regulate their behaviour through games, activities, and discussions.

Volunteers are the primary representatives for the program in schools​ and deliver the presentations solo or in pairs and interact with the students.  We have opportunities for volunteers in Kings and Prince County.

Key requirements and Duties:

Please note: All selected volunteers will be asked to complete a criminal records check and show proof of vaccination prior to delivering in classrooms.

Interested? The next step is completing the I’m Thumbody volunteer interest form.
