How to Apply

You can apply to volunteer using our online application. You will be asked to create a username and password for our volunteer system at the start of the process.  Our move to the new location is scheduled to happen in the next few months and will bring with it many new opportunities.

Please be aware that our minimum volunteer age is 18 years old. At this time we are focused on onboarding volunteers who will be available for at least 6 months and able to do an average of at least one shift per week (3 hours). Our volunteer shifts are self scheduled so you schedule shifts that work for you.

New volunteers are being brought in with a contact free email/Google Meet orientation process, followed by onsite role specific training on your first shift. The length of the wait is a function of available positions, your availability, and your experience/skills. Adding more detail to your application will help us match you to a role.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Food Bank Volunteers
We have shifts throughout the day Monday 9 am – 7:30 pm, Tuesday 1 pm-5 pm, Wednesday 9 am-5 pm and Friday 9 am-5 pm. Since we have transitioned to a model where clients order online and pickup at the door during COVID-19, most roles involve sorting donations, packing orders and passing out orders. 

Specialized Volunteer Roles

We are frequently in need of the following specialized skills to support our ongoing operations:

  • Graphic Design
  • WordPress site development

If one of these interest you please email volunteer@thecompass.ca. Our volunteer manager Sheryl would be pleased to discuss these roles with you.
