Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at Deer Lodge Centre.

In order to join our team, volunteers must be prepared to commit to at least three months of volunteer service and be a minimum of 16 years of age.

What to expect applying to become a Deer Lodge Centre volunteer:

Step 1 – Complete the application form

  • Applying to volunteer is much like applying for a job. We take many factors into consideration before accepting volunteers to assist with Deer Lodge Centre programs. Please complete the application form as accurately as possible as your application will help us place you in an appropriate volunteer position.
  • If you are under 18 years of age, you must also complete the parental/guardian consent form.

Step 2: Interview with Volunteer Services

  • Once we receive your application, the staff from Volunteer Services may call you to arrange a date and time for an interview.
  • The interview is an opportunity for Volunteer Services to learn more about your interests and volunteering goals as well as an opportunity for you to ask questions. We will discuss placements based on your interests and our program needs. You will be asked to provide three references – references from family members or personal friends will not be accepted.

Step 3: Screening

  • Following the interview, a Volunteer Services staff member will contact your references.

Step 4: Volunteer Placement

  • If you are a successful candidate, a Volunteer Services staff member will contact you to offer you a volunteer position matched to your skills, abilities and availability. If you accept the position, a start date will be determined and orientation arranged.

Step 5: Training and Orientation

  • All volunteers will go through an orientation session that provides an overview of Deer Lodge Centre and will cover all of the information you will need to know in order to begin volunteering. At this time, you will also be provided with an ID badge.
  • Welcome to our team, you are now ready to begin volunteering!
