We couldn’t do this without the support of people like you.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the work we do at Youth HQ. All of our programs are dependent on like-minded people who are invested in making a difference, and we value each and every one of them.

To make sure that volunteering with us is the right fit for both you and the families who use our services, we have a diligent screening process that is mandatory for everyone volunteering with us. We appreciate your time and care in completing this process, as we take safety seriously for everyone involved.

Our volunteer application is a multistep process that includes filling out an application package, getting specific record checks from the RCMP and Children’s Services. We will also require references and an in-person interview. Once all of that is set in place, you’re ready to join in and start making an impact!

The first step is to let us know you’re interested – no strings attached. Just send us a message with the form at the bottom of this page and we’ll get in touch with more information.

Thank you for considering to spend your valuable time with the children and youth in our community.
