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 our phone number is: 250-642-6364 Ext 235
Volunteer Centre Updates
- Family Care Givers of BC provided training for a few of our volunteers who are ready to facilitate a Care Givers group in Sooke. We are currently working on more details, but we would like to open this group as soon as possible in our Volunteer Centre office. If only we have all information confirmed we will share with you.
- On October 12th we have Sooke Fall Fair presentation about programs and volunteer opportunities there. This is the open to the public event. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about them.
- By the end of this month we should have new version of the Seniors Services Directory in our office. This booklet contains over 500 listings of community resources. Please come to our office to pick it up.
Educational Sessions are back in September. The full list of workshops is already available on our calendar. There are still some seats available but please do not wait to register too long, as some workshops are almost full.
