Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need any special qualifications to volunteer?
No, we match you to a volunteer opportunity that fits your skills, interest and time availability. NSCR volunteers do require a criminal record check.
My schedule is pretty busy but I do want to give back to my community. Are there volunteer opportunities for people with limited time like me?
Yes. Some of our volunteer opportunities require relatively little of your time but you can still make a difference. Contact us to learn more.
My English is not perfect but I am working hard to improve it – are there opportunities for people like me?
Yes, there are lots of volunteer opportunities on the North Shore that require different levels of skill and English language capacity. Volunteering is a great way to improve your English and sometimes having an additional language can we be an asset for certain volunteer jobs. Give us a call and we can explore NSCR volunteer opportunities that best fit you.
