Volunteer With Us:

Dartmouth Family Centre encourages the involvement of volunteers throughout the organization.
We value and appreciate the role of volunteers in supporting the Centre to carry out its mission.

Volunteer at the Centre

The Centre's volunteer program supports participants to become involved in the Centre in a volunteer role. Orientation, training, and ongoing support helps participants to develop their skills as a volunteer. Participant volunteers support the community drop-in room, child development programs, parenting workshops/programs, maintaining public spaces, baking snacks for children, organizing the community cupboard, administrative support, etc. Not all opportunities are available at all times. If you are interested in volunteering at the Centre please fill out an application or talk to Centre staff about your interest.

Volunteer on the Board of Directors
