Volunteer Today!

Currently, due to COVID-19, volunteer roles are on hold at Youville Centre.  As provincial restrictions are lifted in the future, we look forward to volunteers rejoining us to support programs, services and community development.


Good for you. Good for a healthy community.

After 10 years in the same job, Jennifer suddenly found herself out of work. It was scary and stressful, but she also wondered if there might be something different out there for her to explore. Through Youville Centre, she started volunteering with a community program for newcomers, and found a passion for helping others. She was good at it too, and the experience set her off in a new career direction.

The goal of Youville’s Volunteer program is:

To connect community members with opportunities to enrich the programs, services and client experiences at Youville Centre.

By Volunteering with Youville Centre, you will:

Work in a meaningful role;
Help make a difference in people’s lives;
Gain new skills & share your ideas; and
Contribute to improving health programs & services


Volunteering with Youville is unique because:

We include volunteers in planning and delivering health services;
We are active in community development work;
We believe health is affected by social factors like shelter, education, food and income; and
compassion and hope are at the center of the work we do
