Volunteers are at the heart of what we do. Our volunteers give generously of their time and are an essential part of our team. They bring their compassion, diversity, skills and enthusiasm to a wide variety of roles at Hospice Yukon, and we do our best to support and encourage their growth.
Volunteer with clients
All applicants interested in client-focussed volunteering are screened before starting our Volunteer Training Program. This includes a written application form, interview, police check, and references. We take care to find a good fit between the interests and skills of each volunteer with an appropriate role at Hospice Yukon. Client-focused volunteer roles include:
- Healing Touch Volunteer
- Vigil Volunteer
- Grief Educator
- Grief Group Facilitator
Due to the ongoing global pandemic Volunteer Training is currently on hold and will not be offered in 2021.
Volunteer behind the scenes
We value volunteers who help in a range of non-client related roles. Some of the ways these volunteers contribute include helping with the library or newsletter, computer support, research projects, yard maintenance, house repairs, poster distribution, sewing feelie hearts, and more.
Become a Board Member
Hospice Yukon is led by a diverse and dynamic group of volunteers who make up our Board of Directors. Operating according to a Policy Governance model of leadership, our Board provides the vision to guide the direction of the programs and services we offer to the community.
