Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at the Good Stuff Connection Clothing Store & Program

The Good Stuff Connection Clothing Program ensures that clean, good quality clothing, shoes, personal items and small household goods donated by the public are provided free of charge to women and children staying at SAGE Transition House and to women, men and children referred by other community social services.

Volunteers at the Good Stuff Connection Clothing Store sort donations, price items, assemble care kits and steam clothing. Volunteers are asked to commit to 3 hours per week, and must be over the age of 16.

If you are interested in volunteering at the GSC, please drop by the store at 154 West 3rd, North Vancouver on Monday – Thursday during business hours and talk to Manisha.

Volunteering at SAGE House

We look for volunteers who can work one 4-hour shift a week.  We have a schedule and the hours are during the day or early evening, Monday to Friday. Volunteers at the Transition House either cook, drive clients to appointments, clean, shop or do other day-to-day tasks.   Right now, we are specifically looking for volunteers who are willing to cook one afternoon a week. Volunteers must be over the age of 19.

Please note that we do not have opportunities for volunteers to learn front line or clinical skills, or to work directly with our clients.  Agencies such as Battered Women’s Support Services (bwss.org) or Women Against Violence Against Women (wavaw.ca) offer this experience.

If you are interested in volunteering at SAGE House, please email our Admin Manager Connie at cbonsteel@nscss.net for more information
