Much of our success is because of our talented and dedicated volunteers who donate their knowledge, skills, ideas, enthusiasm, and time. Volunteers are encouraged to become actively involved in many different activities, programs, and services that help to strengthen our connections to the South Vancouver community. Join us in building a stronger neighbourhood together!
Please browse our website to familiarize yourself with our programs and services and see what interests you. Once you have found your area of interest, fill out the Volunteer Application Form and drop it off at SVNH’s Reception Desk. Volunteers will be contacted and an orientation will be arranged with the appropriate program.
