Frequently Asked Questions

Are there volunteer opportunities that are flexible around my school hours and sport activities?

Yes. Many volunteer opportunities exist with flexible hours or are event based.

Do I need experience or training to be a volunteer?

No. Many of the volunteer opportunities in our North Shore Youth Volunteer Directory will include training as part of their orientation. Volunteering offers the opportunity to learn new skills and gain important experience.

What is the benefit of volunteering versus paid work experience?

Volunteering offers the opportunity to gain skills you may not get in an entry level paid position. Such skills include leadership, communication and team building, among others to showcase on your resume. It is also a great opportunity to expand your network and get to know more people.

I work in the North Shore school system as a Secondary School Guidance and Career Counsellor. Our students will be very interested in the North Shore Youth Volunteer Directory. Is it available in hard copy format? Is it free?

Yes and yes! The Directory is available both in a hard copy format and online via the NSCR website. Both versions are free. Contact us to receive copies.
