Volunteer With Us
Thank you for your interest in becoming a valued volunteer at Wood’s Homes.
If you’re looking for a way to give back to your community – and also make a difference to children, youth and families – you’ve come to the right place!
We rely on volunteers from all walks of life who bring different skills and experience to Wood's Homes. As the demand for mental health treatment and support continues to grow, volunteers are increasingly vital to the work we do.
The health and safety of all is our top priority, and at this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a variety of remote volunteering opportunities that allows you to volunteer from the comfort of your own home. Volunteer interest for Wood’s Homes continues to be high in spite of the obvious challenges and we are so grateful for your continued support!
Explore the volunteer opportunities below.
Note: All volunteers working directly with our programs are screened by way of Calgary Police Service and Children’s Services Intervention Record Checks.
General Educational Development (GED) Tutor
Apply your knowledge and skills, and become a GED Tutor at Wood's Homes! As a GED Tutor, you will support our New Horizon and Inglewood Opportunity Hub programs, serving young adults (ages 18-24) who have yet to complete their General Educational Development (GED) test.
GED Tutors provide one-to-one tutoring to a youth in need of improving their basic skills in preparation for the GED or HiSET high school equivalency exams. Tutors may choose to tutor in the areas of Reading/Writing (English) and/OR Math, or in any subject area as needed.
This is a remote/virtual volunteer opportunity.
Workshop Volunteer - Activities, New Skills and Trade
Apply your specialized skills and become a Workshop Volunteer at Wood's Homes! As a Workshop Volunteer, you will bring your own skills and experience to host workshops for our New Horizon and Inglewood Opportunity Hub programs, serving young adults (ages 18-24) who are at risk of being homeless.
We are looking for artists, craft makers, fitness instructors, actors and musicians, makeup artists, writers and other skill-and experience-based teachers who will supervise and facilitate workshops for our clients on a monthly or on an as-needed-basis.
This is both an in-person and remote/virtual volunteer opportunity.
We constantly review volunteer applications and will match applicants with the right volunteer role, and you may be contacted for an interview. Applications are kept on file if a match can’t be found right away - it may take a week to several months to be contacted for a volunteer position. We thank all interested volunteers for their interest; however, only those being considered for interview will be contacted.
