Volunteering Opportunities

 

Volunteers are an essential part of Ancaster Community Services. They are the foundation on which our agency is built. We have a fabulous team of volunteers and strong retention.  ACS has approximately 150 volunteers who dedicate their time, talents and resources to deliver our wonderful programs, services and hence our mission to the community.

 

If you would like to get involved with a dynamic community-based organization, please contact Paula Jones, ACS Coordinator of Volunteer Services at  905-648-6675 or email Paula at pjones@hpl.ca

FAQ:

Do we have any weeknight or weekend volunteer opportunities? 

Unfortunately, we only have a limited number of volunteer opportunities outside our regular business hours (Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m to 4 p.m.).

Do we offer youth volunteer opportunities?
