Volunteer Opportunities

Why not consider the donation of time?  YWCA is always looking for willing and compassionate volunteers!

 

Hidden Treasures

'Hidden Treasures' is a program designed to help women and children with basic clothing, personal items and household items, which are donated by the community. Volunteers then organize the donated items into sections in a store-like atmosphere. We're looking for volunteers to help sort and organize the donations.

GirlSpace

Junior GirlSpace (Ages 8 - 12): Wednesdays 4:00-6:00pm

YWCA GirlSpace reaches out to girls with quality programming addressing key social issues facing young women. GirlSpace fills the need for girl-only extra-curricular community programs, offering girls the opportunity to increase their awareness about violence and its root causes, while exploring self, personal achievements, building on positive self-esteem and making new friends. Volunteers help facilitate programs and act as a role model for youth.

Neighbourhood Play Program Play Pal

Neighbourhood Play Program is a free day-program run during July and August at various parks around the city. Volunteers (ages 13+) are assigned a specific park to volunteer at Monday - Thursday through the Summer. They assist in running program and helping Play Program staff, as well as acting like a role model for participants.

Event Volunteers

The YWCA puts on a number of fun and exciting events and fundraisers. These positions are perfect for volunteers who want to help a few times a year, and may not have the schedule to allow for weekly scheduled volunteering. Check the Events page to see what's coming up next!
