Volunteering Opportunities

Dear Ms Phillips,

I represent the Freemason Cancer Car Program affiliated with the Canadian Cancer Society in Vancouver. We are looking for new volunteers and are reaching out to organizations such as yours to meet our current needs.

Since 1989, we have provided a free service driving cancer patients to and from their treatments. Our program serves Vancouver and the immediate area, Vancouver Island, the Interior, and Prince George. The service is run by volunteers and is funded by the Freemasons of British Columbia-Yukon and with donations from past and current cancer patients. Our volunteers drive once, or if they wish, twice a week during a morning or afternoon shift from 7 until 5, Monday to Friday.

If you have an upcoming meeting, I would like to attend to briefly promote our program to your members. If you do not have such a meeting, I would appreciate if our appeal were included in any member newsletters/communications or as a link on your website if you would so permit.

I am available by email or by the phone number listed below to answer any questions you may have. Also below, please find our website address.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

David Minichiello
Freemason Cancer Car Committee

Become a ONE TO ONE volunteer tutor and open the world of reading to a child!

For over 25 years, ONE TO ONE Literacy Society has been helping struggling young readers in Vancouver-area public schools with the opportunity to practice reading with a caring, patient adult.  We know that this time spent with students directly impacts the student’s confidence and their chance of succeeding academically and in life.

Do you have 2 – 3 hours a week during school hours to work one-on-one with students?  Our volunteer tutors read once a week, either in the mornings or afternoons, at a specific school, from October to June. You will be developing a relationship with the students that will help them bloom into successful readers.

You must be 18 years old, be proficient in English and/or French and complete a criminal background check.  We will provide you with training and ongoing support. Training sessions for new volunteers will be held in September 2017.  We are looking for volunteer tutors in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, New Westminster and Coquitlam.

TCF Mentors Wanted

Are you interested in volunteering your time to a young adult? Would you be willing to support one of B.C.’s graduating students? The Cmolik Foundation is a not-for-profit Family Foundation that awards scholarships to financially challenged youth that have demonstrated tenacity to overcome significant life barriers.

What do mentors do? Mentors build a positive, caring relationship with a young adult. Mentors provide emotional support and encouragement to help students reach their personal and career goals. Mentors serve as positive role models and friends to help build student motivation. Mentors are part of a larger network of community volunteers investing their time and talents in the lives of young people.  Mentors make a difference.

We ask our mentors to connect with their students at least once a month during the school term either via phone, face-to-face, email, or text. We also ask our mentors to remain with their student until they complete their post secondary studies.

Mentors will have access to our brand new on-line resource materials and instructional videos produced in partnership with the University of British Columbia.

If you yourself or anyone you know might like to provide guidance to young adults in post-secondary studies, please contact me directly before the end of March, 2018.

Thanks for considering our request!
