Get Involved at Acadia Park


At Acadia Park there’s always something to do, opportunities to make connections and meet neighbours, and ways to give back to the community.

Acadia Park Resident’s Association

This association will be run by residents living in Acadia Park with the purpose of developing a positive sense of community, providing feedback to SHCS on matters that relate to living in Acadia Park, providing opportunities for residents to engage with one another and representing the spectrum of interests and opinions of Acadia Park residents to UBC. Contact Emma Chartrand for more details on how to get involved.


We know that finding child care—sometimes at the last minute—can be difficult for busy students. The Acadia Park babysitter registry connects people who need a babysitter with those who babysit.

Interested in babysitting?

Visit the Front Desk to complete a babysitter registry form. You’ll be asked to provide qualifications, experience, and availability. Experienced youth and adults are welcome to join.

Looking for child care?

Browse the registry and the Front Desk to select and contact a potential babysitter.

Please note that this is a volunteer service. UBC does not interview or conduct background checks and is not responsible for the behaviour of any babysitter in the registry. Parents are urged to use the same care choosing a babysitter from the registry as they would in the general community.

General Volunteers

Acadia Park just wouldn’t be the same without the hard work of the volunteer community. Volunteers help run family-centric programs like T-Ball and are encouraged to submit new program ideas.

Garden Keepers

Calling all green thumbs! We need volunteers to help oversee our cooperative, organic community garden. Positions include coordinators, committee members, and event planners.

Community Assistants

Community Assistants (CA) are part-time employees who live and work in Acadia Park. They are responsible for event planning, conflict management and developing and supporting community-wide programs for parents, children and youth, couples, and student spouses.
