Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer!

Volunteers assist members of the community by providing the following services:

Currently we have a special request for a sewing companion.

The first step is to set up an interview with George Colussi, our Coordinator of Volunteers and Community Programs. George can be reached at 250 388 7844 ext. 308 or gcolussi@jbcp.bc.ca.

During your interview George will talk with you about how your interests, skills and availability would best be applied to a volunteer position. This is also your opportunity to ask questions and about the volunteer opportunities available.

You will then have to get a Criminal Record Review. George will give you instructions on how to complete the Criminal Record Review online. These are mandatory for all volunteers working with seniors and adults living with disabilities. Reviews are free for volunteers.

Once your interview, screening and Criminal Record Review are complete, George will provide an on-site orientation and connect you with the Outreach Worker who will set up your participant match.
