Volunteers have been a steady force in VSMS’ service to seniors in the past 60 years. As a volunteer, you have an opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of low-income seniors living in Vancouver’s urban core. Not only will you have a chance to change the lives of one or more low-income seniors, but you’ll have a chance to meet fun, like-minded people and gain valuable work experience. Interested? We would love to have you join us.

Available Opportunities

Here are the volunteer opportunities we currently have:

  • ESL Tutor. Help seniors develop their English language skills so that they can express themselves better.
