What Activities Can You Get Involved With?
Volunteers are integral to our success in helping people overcome the obstacles they face. There are many volunteer opportunities available, including special events, committee work, maintenance, and group child care and parent relief. Without the loyal support of the many dedicated volunteers who help us each year our services would not be possible.

Child & Youth Programs | Hands on assisting with Early Learning Centre staff
Volunteers assist the Early Learning Centre staff by caring for children while their parents attend a variety of life skills programs or parenting groups offered at Bethlehem Housing and Support Services.
They also help provide social/recreational programming to the School Age Club (children 6-12 years of age). Visit our Early Learning Centre page for more information.

Special Events | Volunteer to help at a fundraising event
Volunteers assist with one of our fundraiser events, a third party fundraiser or an information fair (sharing information and volunteer opportunities at various events). Some of our larger fundraisers typically require over 40 volunteers to help with set up, during the event and tear down. Some events require volunteers to be over 18 years of age.
