Volunteer at The Alex

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 a senior with friendly visits; facilitate movement or art classes; assist with the preparation of sandwiches and hot meals in our community kitchen; accompany clients to their medical appointments; provide dental services to children or legal aid to youth; 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, however, we encourage you to apply online and we will contact you when something comes available.
