Fort McMurray, AB – The Fort McMurray Airport Authority (FMAA) has launched its first-ever YMM Volunteer Program.

Volunteers will be trained to support passengers with flight information, wayfinding, and answer general questions which commonly arise during the passenger journey. Additionally, volunteers will have the opportunity to support YMM special events.

The program can support individuals in building their resume, socializing, or staying active during retirement years. Whatever the reason, FMAA leadership is confident volunteers will enjoy the role and look forward to welcoming new members to Team YMM!
