Types of Volunteers

There are two main types of volunteers. The first are those who work directly with our Circle Programs.

Volunteer Facilitators are the backbone of our program. These volunteers work with our Parenting Support Circles which meet across the province, in different languages and with diverse caregivers. To find out more and to apply for this position click here.

Childminders work with children during Circle meetings so that parents and caregivers are able to participate and share freely. To find out more or to apply for the Childminder position click here.

General volunteers assist in our office, or help out with events. To find out more please call our Burnaby office at 604-669-1616 or e-mail office@parentsupportbc.ca.

Board of Directors are also volunteers. To express interest in applying for the Board, please email office@parentsupportbc.ca with “Board of Directors Application” in the subject heading.
