Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at WISH! We are pleased to announce that effective Monday, July 5th, 2021 WISH is able to resume the onboarding of new volunteers for our Volunteer program!

WISH’s mission is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of women engaged in Vancouver’s street-based sex trade. Our volunteers, ages 19 and up, perform a variety of tasks, including, but not limited to helping to serve and prepare a hot, nutritious meal; sorting and dispensing clothing, makeup, and toiletries donations; helping women sign up for showers and access shelters, some light janitorial duties, and of course, the opportunity to connect one-on-one with participants.

“I would say that one of the most enjoyable parts of volunteering at WISH is working with the staff and participants. Both of whom show remarkable empathy and patience.” – Lynne Van Meer, WISH volunteer

We serve an average of 300-350 individuals per night across all our programs and services. WISH would not be able to operate without the dedication and commitment of our 100+ volunteers!
If you are interested in joining the WISH Volunteer team, please fill out the form below, and we will get back to you in 24-48 hours about the next upcoming orientation dates.

Thanks in advance! We look forward to meeting you!
