Volunteer Opportunities

The purpose of our Volunteer Counselling Services are to provide affordable counselling services that support and enhance the coping abilities of individuals and families.  Our volunteer counselling services are one of only a few free or affordable counselling programs in the community and have been instrumental in assisting individuals to make positive impacting changes in their lives and families. If you would like to offer your time and energy as a volunteer peer counselor, you can learn more about the VCP program here.
