If you are between 15 and 29 you're invited to join Youth 20/20 Can! Volunteers meet regularly to share ideas about projects, events, or activities that matter to them they want to lead and manage in community. Once youth have identified projects, the volunteers partner with community members to plan and host events, activities, or projects - everything from learning about food security issues, to creating murals, and hosting activities at festivals and conferences. Volunteers are supported by Youth Engagement Workers who help coordinate events and activities and meet with youth to make sure their needs are being met.
Benefit to Volunteer: Volunteers are invited to participate in 3 free training sessions over the course of the year on topics that are chosen by youth to help them build skills and learn.
Time Commitment: Participate in planning, volunteering, and/or training events for an average of 10 hours per month.

Canucks Autism Network provides year-round sports and recreation programs for individuals with autism. Our volunteers work in a fun and fast-paced sports and recreation environment offering high levels of support to our participants (most programs offer 1-1 support). Volunteers do not need any prior experience to be part of our programs – a training session as well as hands-on training during the program will be provided.
We run a number of different sports and recreation programs, social and other programs in Victoria. Programs take place on weekday evenings and weekends and last for one to three hours, depending on the selected program. Volunteers would be asked to support a program, once per week, for one season.
