Whether you like working with children, youth, adults or seniors, at cultural facilities, festivals and special events, or contributing as a member of a council-appointed group, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. You may wish to volunteer once a week, once a month or a few times a year at special events—we have options to fit everyone’s lifestyle.
Volunteering gives you the opportunity to contribute to your community and help establish a personal and professional network. You can also make new friends, practice English and develop leadership skills that can be transferrable to a career.
Please note: You don't need to be a West Vancouver resident to volunteer for most opportunties (you do for committees and groups), but most positions have a minimum age requirement of 14 years. Some volunteer placements require a criminal record check, but not all.
