Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Klinic.
Volunteers bring diversity and make an important contribution to our Crisis Program, Sexual Assault Crisis Program, Community Drop-In Counselling Program, and Teen Talk Peer Support Program. In fact, we couldn’t operate these critical services in their current capacity without the help of our volunteers.
Klinic volunteers come from all walks of life. You don’t need to have any special training or experience to join our team. Most importantly, we look for people who are empathic, non-judgmental, and calm; and understand the importance of self-care while doing this difficult work.
Both our Winnipeg and Brandon sites offer the opportunity to volunteer in our Crisis Program. Our Winnipeg sites also offer the opportunity to volunteer in our Sexual Assault Crisis Program, Community Drop-In Counselling Program, and Teen Talk Peer Support Program.
