‘Volunteer Burnaby’ information centre

The main volunteering information resource is Volunteer Burnaby, who is an active partner of a network of local, regional, provincial and national organizations such as Volunteer BC and Volunteer Canada. Volunteer Burnaby is currently looking for volunteers in the following two programs:

Covid-19 Response Volunteer Database:

This database consists of local covid-19 response volunteer programs and offers a variety of positions such as beach clean ups, food hub operations, and at-home sewing. Volunteers can enter themselves into the database where they can then choose from positions in their area.

Volunteer Burnaby Virtual Series:

A virtual opportunity where volunteers can submit a webinar, tutorial, or performance to be shared on our online platforms. .

 

In addition to these postings, we can help connect you with an opportunity that matches your skills. Call directly to talk about volunteering on 604-775-0565.
