How to Volunteer

Victim Services of Waterloo Region is fortunate enough to have a fabulous compliment of dedicated volunteers who give their time freely. Without the help of our volunteers, the agency would be unable to provide quality services to the victims of crime and trauma in our Region. While our volunteers are top notch, we are always looking for additional volunteers to enhance our team! There are three types of volunteers: On Call, Team Leader and Board Member.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please fill out the following VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM and submit to [email protected].
