The Hub of Social Services on the Coast

Volunteer Opportunities

The Community Resource Centre is in process of taking over the maintenance of a list of available volunteer positions that have been submitted by local organizations. We hope to have an updated list available before the end of October 2017.

Meantime, you can see below an outdated list of volunteer positions that will give you an idea of what kind of needs there are in the community. The list includes contact information should you want further details from the organization itself. 

Please check back in November for an up to date list!
