Become a Volunteer!
Volunteers make a difference
Volunteering is the most fundamental act of citizenship and philanthropy in Canada. It means offering time, energy and skills by one’s own free will. Volunteers play a dynamic and active role in providing and supporting the delivery of WCP’s programs and services.
In WCP, we value the work and dedication of volunteers. Volunteers are an integral part of fulfilling WCP’s mission. The assistance of volunteers enables WCP to increase the quantity and quality of services offered. Volunteers provide additional expertise and the opportunity for increased community involvement. You enable WCP to better serve those living, leaving, gaining support or services. You effect change within the organization as individuals and a team.
You are an important link between WCP and the people who make up the communities we serve.
WCP appreciates the interest and dedication of all of those who support ending violence against women and children. There are two ways to get involved with WCP: as a practitioner and/or woman survivor of abuse or as a volunteer.
The standing committees of WCP are composed of practitioners and/or women survivors of abuse who are committed to assisting women experiencing abuse and working toward ending violence against women. WCP also has a number of non-practitioner volunteers including students. Please click on the links above for more information.
