Our volunteers are vital to our work in the community. They are the friendly faces who can do the little extras for our clients, enhancing the quality of services that we offer.

You can help by relieving isolation for our newly-housed clients with friendly visits; running cooking or art classes; assisting with our food hamper program; accompanying clients to medical appointments; welcoming new moms and their babies to the breastfeeding clinic; and so much more.

Our volunteer needs are as unique as our volunteers! Because of this, we may not have an immediate match for you based on skills or availability, but we encourage you to fill out the form below to begin the volunteer process.

For more information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@thealex.ca.

If you would like to learn more about The Alex, you are invited to join us for a lunch and learn on the 3rd Thursday of every month. To RSVP please email Ria at rviray@thealex.ca.

Sometimes in life it is the little things we do that have the greatest impact on our well being. It’s also the time that we spend giving, contributing and enriching programs that set a positive example for our children and our community.  For me choosing to volunteer at The Alex just feels right and is an investment into building a healthier community for all!
