WHY VOLUNTEER AT FVACFSS

Community

Not only is Everyone at FVACFSS part of a large, supportive community, but so are you when you join us.

Culture

Serving an area comprised of 18 aboriginal communities, we have a rich culture that welcomes all.

Purpose

The work we do with children, families, and communities is essential in making lives better.

FVACFSS is responsible for the provision of child welfare programs as well as prevention and community development services. FVACFSS works in partnership with our communities to provide cultural programs, education, resources and care for Aboriginal children, youth and families in need.

If you want to help the children and families we assist, you can volunteer for any number of events we host throughout the year. We can always use good hearted volunteers that take genuine interest in helping others and bringing joy to children and those in need.

Volunteers help us support more…

Children

Our events brighten the lives of children and teach them new skills.

 

Families

Family events bring everyone closer together & strengthen cultural ties.

 

Communities

Connecting & enhancing local communities has alway been a key part of our work.

HOW YOU HELP

Volunteers are a very necessary part of our efforts to enhance the lives of children, families, caregivers, and the surrounding aboriginal communities. When you volunteer with us, you directly and positively impact children and families within our care.


Safety

You help provide a safe environment.

With people we can trust helping at these events, children and families can feel safe and secure during their time at our events, letting them focus on what’s happening and have a great time.


More Fun

Helping make these events happen, makes them more fun.

Having an extra set of hands for just about anything is handy and can turn something negative, positive. Your help goes a long way to ensure events go smoothly and everyone has a good time.


Belonging

All our events are made and managed with culture in mind. One of our aims is to help aboriginal people connect with and understand their culture. When you help out at any event, you’re helping this aim come true.
