Volunteer With Us

Covenant House Volunteers share their skills, passion and experience. They send our youth a powerful message, that they are worthy of someone else's time.

Current Volunteer Openings:

Vancouver Whitecaps 50/50 Program

Covenant House Vancouver is excited to announce that we have been selected to be the partner for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC 50/50 Fundraising Program for the 2020 Season. Vancouver Whitecaps have been a continuous supporter of Covenant House through campaigns like Buck Up for Mental Health. This announcement is just another great way that Vancouver Whitecaps FC is supporting the youth at Covenant House Vancouver.

We will be looking to have 40+ volunteers at each home game to support and sell 50/50 tickets. The more tickets we sell, the more money we will raise for youth experiencing homelessness. We will be looking for support throughout the season, so if you or members of your family or friends are interested, please connect with us to sign up!

Positions Available:

Volunteers must be 19+ in order to sell 50/50 tickets or count money (in compliance with BC Gaming Licensing)

If you are interested in volunteering, contact us at volunteer@covenanthousebc.org or 604-901-0161


Update:

Major League Soccer including Vancouver Whitecaps FC has suspended match play for 30 days, effective as of March 12th, 2020, as the league continues to assess the impact of COVID-19. At the appropriate time, the league and clubs will communicate plans for the continuation of the 2020 season and update the status of league events.

While we are still accepting volunteers for the 50/50 Program, volunteers will not be required until match play is reinstated.

If you have questions please contact us: volunteer@covenanthousebc.org

Thank-A-Thon

Duties: Volunteers call our donors to say “Thank You” for supporting Covenant House Vancouver. We are primarily privately funded and it is important for us to contact our donors and thank them personally for the difference they make in our young peoples’ lives. Learn more here

Other Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteer Groups and Volunteers Under the Age of 26

These positions often focus on an event or short-term project. For example, one of the most important projects we carry out is our Thank-A-Thon. At our Thank-A-Thon evenings, volunteers get together to phone donors and say “thank you”, all in a fun environment. We also have golf tournaments or other large fundraisers once a year where we’ll need people to help with the day’s activities.

Mentorship at Covenant House

Our Mentorship Program gives youth the opportunity to develop healthy and trusting one-to-one relationships with responsible adults. Mentors are adult role-models that commit to supporting a young person to achieve their goals over the course of one year. We will provide orientation, training and personalized matching. If you have questions, please contact our Mentorship Coordinator, at mentorship@covenanthousebc.org

The Mentorship Program is currently looking for a adult mentor who works in the tourism industry. If you have questions or are interested, please contact our Mentorship Coordinator, at mentorship@covenanthousebc.org
