WHAT IT'S LIKE TO VOLUNTEER WITH US

Martin volunteers with us at Saanich Volunteer Services Society and Doryce is one of our clients. What initially started out as volunteering handy-work, unexpectedly blossomed into a friendship. This is their story.

WE VALUE YOUR TIME & INTERESTS

We know you bring a lot to the table and get excited about matching your specific passions and skills with clients who need your support and kindness.

Because we are a small, local organization with a variety of volunteer opportunities we are able to customize the volunteer experience to create a mutually fulfilling partnership for everyone.

 

Feel free to browse the variety of services you can volunteer for and hear from some of our volunteers about who they are and what they enjoy about SVSS.

APPLY ONLINE

When you fill out an application form, one of our staff members will contact you to set up an appointment to find out more about your interests and guide you through an orientation.

You will be asked to submit a criminal record check authorization. Criminal record checks are free of charge and mandatory for all our volunteers.

 

Once we have received your record check and we’ve called your references you’re ready to help a neighbour. It’s as easy as that.

 

Welcome to the SVSS Volunteer Team!
