Volunteers at CCSC work to create an accepting, community-oriented space where all are welcomed without prejudice. When CCSC guests come in, volunteers know them by face and name. They are welcomed and joked with and listened to. As a CCSC volunteer, you can make a real difference in people’s lives.
Being part of the CCSC team offers many rewards. Because our programs are volunteer-run, you have the chance to take strong ownership of the work you do here. You will have the chance to use your strengths or discover new ones. As well, you will have the chance to meet and work with a great group of people. If you think you may be interested in volunteering with us, contact us with your questions or to set up a visit. Please also fill out a Volunteer Application online.
Here is what CCSC volunteers are saying:
“I love volunteering here. It’s the best part of my week.”
“I love it here. It can get as stressful as stressful can be. I still love it. I like talking to the people. It invigorates me. When I leave here, I feel happy.”
