The Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society (VAFCS) acknowledges our volunteers who are a crucial part of our organization and contribute to the success of the various programs.
We thank you for all your hard work!!
And to those who are considering on volunteering here at VAFCS, we promise you a rewarding and exciting experience. We require volunteers from time to time for special events (less than 10 hours) or for ongoing support for our regular programs such as the Elders Program and the After School Program.
Do you love to cook? Especially for hungry and grateful people? Can you volunteer for 4 hours a week?
Well, the Elders program has just the opportunity for you.
You can have fun while being useful and sincerely appreciated. The Elders program has volunteer opportunities on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm for cooks and cook helpers.
Duties include cooking a nutritious and delicious lunch for 15-25 people in a recently renovated and well equipped commercial kitchen under the watchful eye of the Supervisor, Laura.
(And you don’t have to be Aboriginal. Just a good person who wants to smile, use your skills, and help others.)
Here is what a happy volunteer looks like making a delicious roast beef lunch! Thanks, Jaylee!
About 15 lively, energetic kids from 6-12 years old come each weekend to Supervisor Narpinder’s great After School program.
