Description Over 200 volunteers across Canada power the Tetra program in communities from Victoria, British Columbia to St. John’s Newfoundland. Tetra volunteers work both independently and collaboratively to design and build innovative custom-assistive devices that enable people with disabilities to overcome physical barriers in their everyday lives.

Bringing diverse perspectives and skills, Tetra volunteers are united in their passion and commitment to find solutions where none may exist or are accessible. Working directly with clients and often sharing ideas with other volunteers, the process to design, build and complete projects is both rewarding and practical.
