Volunteer with our Kettle community.

Ever wanted to give back to your community in a meaningful and enriching way? Now is your chance.

Volunteering at The Kettle Society is a great way to be build skills, routine, and structure, become part of a community, and help in the recovery and healing process for individuals. Volunteers help to facilitate programming, serve meals in our Drop-In Centre, assist with maintaining safe and clean spaces, and help with annual events and fundraisers.

Our volunteer program gives priority to peer applicants, as we believe that having the opportunity to give back is an important part of recovery and healing. However, all applications are welcome!

We also seek community volunteers to provide haircuts, facilitate sing-alongs, or even art therapy. If you have a unique skill you’d like to share with our members in a volunteer capacity, we want to hear from you!
