Whether you like working with children, youth, adults or seniors, at cultural facilities, festivals and special events, or contributing as a member of a council-appointed group, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. 

Volunteering allows you to contribute to your community and helps you establish a personal and professional network. You can also meet new friends, practice your English and develop leadership skills that can be transferable to a career.


The District strives to provide equal opportunities for everyone to contribute their time and talents as volunteers. We welcome individuals from all backgrounds, abilities, and experiences to join our vibrant volunteer community.

We understand that everyone's needs may vary, and we are committed to accommodating specific requirements to ensure that volunteering is accessible to all. If you have any specific needs or accommodations that would enable you to volunteer effectively, please reach out to our dedicated Volunteer Services team directly at [email protected]. They will be more than happy to discuss your needs confidentially and work together to find suitable opportunities.

You do not need to be a West Vancouver resident to volunteer for most opportunities (although you do for some committees and working groups). Most volunteer positions have a minimum age requirement of 14 years. Some volunteer placements require a Police Information Check (PIC).
