Volunteering

The Metchosin Community Association (MCA) has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.  There are volunteers needed for both one-time a year events and regularly recurring tasks.

Our goal with volunteers is to avoid making you to feel that you are taking on a ‘job’ without pay! 
  • We welcome you to help on an as-and-when you are available basis.  
  • We will work around your availability and schedules to cover times when you can’t make it.  
  • We try to make volunteering fun and give you the chance to work with a team of people to help our community.
  • We want you to volunteer for things you enjoy doing.  

All we ask is that you make every effort to show up to do what you sign up for or, when possible, give us fair notice that you won’t be there.

Look through this page and email or phone our office to let us know what types of volunteering you are interested in.
