Sooke Shelter Society helps to bring relief of poverty for those unhoused, living in poverty and underserved. Volunteers are absolutely vital to our team and their contributions make it possible to serve and help our most vulnerable citizens in our community. For more information please visit our website. https://www.sookeshelter.org or contact us at (250)419-3978.
During the Covid pandemic students are allowed to register hours for volunteering for their immediate and extended family or neighbourhood. Activities like lawn mowing, baby sitting, stacking firewood, assisting in a sports league or community class like dance or working in the family business can be counted toward their grad requirement. The goal is for students to gain skills, contribute in a positive manner and build experiences for their resumes.
If you are 14+ years, they got so many fun activities to get involved with. You can gain valuable experience, meet new people, engage with your community, and most importantly, have fun!
To volunteer at SEAPARC Leisure Complex, follow these four steps:
1. Complete a Volunteer Application Form - available for pick up at the reception
2. Meet with Program Supervisor- you will be contacted to schedule a meeting with the appropriate Program Supervisor. They will discuss your suitability, availability and interest in volunteering. References may be contacted.
Sooke ESS, working with Sooke Fire/Rescue, are a local volunteer who trains and works to give back to their community when natural disasters like fires, earthquakes, floods ad other events occur, that cause families to be evacuated from their homes
Emergency Support Services, a provincial emergency response program, provides those services required to preserve the well-being of people affected by an emergency or disaster.
ESS Volunteers are trained to set up reception centres, register evacuees, and provide referrals to local businesses as required.
Please contribute your skills to this worthwhile charitable project! HPS provides musical instruments and instruction to kids and youth in the Sooke area. This includes a Strings program (violin, viola, and cello) for students in grades two and up, and a Drumline program (marching band-style drumming) for students in grades six and up. Students perform at community events throughout the year. Work as a team with a friendly board and dedicated teachers to provide this life-enriching musical experience to our youth. (No musical skills are required of the Treasurer!)
