About Us

Sooke Region Volunteer Centre helps connect people with volunteer opportunities in the Sooke Region. We believe that volunteering is a pillar in everyone's life. Our mission is to inspire people to volunteer. Please contact us and become a volunteer!   Check our Facebook Page at Sooke Region Volunteers or our website. We have a list of organizations looking for volunteers. Drop by our office, we would love to know what you would like to do as a volunteer, what skills you have and what your background is.  We can refer you to a compatible organization in our region. It is easy and time efficient. You can volunteer once, only during summer time or all year round. You decide how much time you can dedicate.  Please do not wait. Give us a call. Our office hours are: Tuesdays and Thursdays: 12.30-4.30PM and Wednesdays 9.00-12.00 and our phone number is: 250-642-6364 Ext 235
