Volunteer Opportunties

Volunteering is a great way to enrich your life, meet new people, share information, and make the city you call home a better place to live by showing how much you care about others. There are many ways that your involvement can lead to positive change in the lives of women and other community members. Our participants are eager to learn, acquire new skills and reinvest in their neighbourhoods. With your help, you can inspire them to reach their full potential, accomplish their dreams and become a success story in their community.

At Tradeworks, we are constantly in need of volunteers for a variety of roles. If you would like to volunteer, here are some areas where you can help:

• Assistance with resume writing
• Assistance with job search techniques and interviewing skills
• Business writing and communications skills development
• Team building skills
• Life skills (social skills, managing a schedule, health and nutrition)
• Assisting at fundraising events

If you would like to volunteer at Tradeworks, please download and complete the Tradeworks Volunteer Application Form. If you have any questions about this program, please email us at info@tradeworks.bc.ca or call us at 604-253-9355.
