Volunteer at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

COVID-19 UPDATE (March 2020):  As the COVID-19 situation intensifies, we have put measures in place for the safety of members and staff. To minimize contact, we have suspended our volunteer program and are not accepting drop-offs of clothing and other donations at this time. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre. Volunteers are integral to the ongoing work of the Centre in providing a safe, welcoming space for women in the Downtown Eastside.

Our volunteer opportunities are for women (cis and trans) over the age of eighteen. Please see the below open volunteer postings to ascertain what would be a good fit for you. Email our volunteer coordinator at skills@dewc.ca to get in touch or with any questions.
