Volunteering is a great way to get some warm-and-fuzzy feelings about contributing to the well-being of your community. It can also help you develop skills, make new friends, and earn references that benefit your career or personal goals.
Covid-19 makes it a little trickier than normal to find a satisfying volunteer experience, but we’re working hard to make things safe for everyone--whether they’re volunteers, staff, or clients. We have safety protocols in place at all our work sites. Approximately 100 volunteers on Vancouver Island currently support our programs.
Right now, the place we need volunteers the most is our Social Concern Office (SCO). Located at 833 Yates Street in downtown Victoria, the SCO provides food, referrals and emergency support to people struggling with poverty. If you’re seeking an opportunity to develop your communication skills, to meet new people, and contribute to the community, consider us!
Volunteers help by greeting people at the door or by assisting our clients to “shop” in our choice pantry. We need people with weekday availability who are willing to extend empathy towards those who struggle with homelessness and poverty. It’s a great place to work on communication skills, to make friends, and to support those in need. Volunteering lets you make a tangible and positive difference in the lives of people around you. Join us today!
