Volunteer Today!

Currently, due to COVID-19, volunteer roles are on hold at Youville Centre.  As provincial restrictions are lifted in 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. Whether on the front lines or working behind the scenes, you can help build a stronger, healthier St. Vital.  


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;
  • Contribute to improving health programs & services; and
  • Become more connected to the St. Vital community.

Volunteering with Youville is unique because:

  • We are the only community health centre in St. Vital;
  • 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 centre of the work we do
