Not Sure Where to Start Volunteering?

We’re here to help you find volunteer opportunities in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody. Occasionally, we post volunteer opportunities available in Surrey, and New Westminster.

My name’s Danielle. If you’re a high school student, working adult or retired, connect with me. I’m happy to answer your questions about local volunteer opportunities.

Start with us. We’re your local volunteer centre.

We have a few suggestions to help you get started:

  • Visit the volunteer opportunities directory on the CVC BC Volunteer platform
  • If you would like to speak with a person, connect with Danielle. She’s happy to advise you.
  • Too busy to keep checking back with us? Subscribe to our Volunteer Voice newsletter. We’ll send you bi-weekly updates on current opportunities.

    For groups wanting to volunteer

    If you’re a social impact organization operating within the Tri-Cities, with a focus on employer supported community engagement, or you’re a family member looking for an opportunity for your clan, connect with Danielle to start a conversation about how you can get involved.  

    For individuals needing volunteers

    Occasionally, we receive requests for volunteer support from individuals in the community with mobility challenges or living on a fixed income. We’re in contact with more than 150 organizations in the TriCities and if there’s an organization that can help, we’re happy to connect you with them.

    Willing to wait for the perfect opportunity?

    Subscribe to the Volunteer Voice newsletter. We’ll deliver current bi-weekly updates on volunteer opportunities and events such as the Volunteer Job Fair and free workshops for volunteers.

    Volunteer Tips

    Did you know there are many different types of volunteer opportunities out there? Consider the listed options available to you:

    • Some are short-term, from one day events to short-term projects up to three months.
    • Other roles might be long-term, with regular shifts that are ongoing and suit individuals that are looking for a way to support their community regularly.
    • There are also virtual volunteer roles done from the comfort of your home with a flexible schedule.
    • And there are volunteer opportunities that are skills-based which are perfect for individuals wanting to expand their skills set. A great place to learn about skills-based volunteering is Volunteer Canada.
