VOLUNTEER

  • Join the Board of Directors – the Board of Directors meets monthly from September to June and is responsible for fundraising, managing budgets, organizing Yukon Cares events, and deciding when we can sponsor families – to name just a few activities. Directors are normally elected at our spring AGM. Our directors are very active – we each do a lot of volunteer work in between the monthly meetings.
  • Join a Settlement Committee – This is a one-year commitment. The Committee usually meets weekly for a year and is responsible for helping a sponsored family settle into Whitehorse and navigate all aspects of life in Canada. These activities may include helping set-up the home before the family arrives, collecting warm clothing for the family, helping the children register for school, taking the family shopping, visiting local attractions, setting up a bank account, getting health cards, job coaching, or driving family members to appointments. You will need an RCMP vulnerable sector check.
  • We sometimes need volunteers for specific tasks, such as fundraising, communication, or events. If you have something in mind, please let us know!
  • If you would like to volunteer, please contact us at yukon.cares@gmail.com and let us know what you are interested in!
