Volunteering with the Calgary Dream Centre is an excellent way to help your community, meet new people, and become a force for change in the city. We know that you have a unique set of talents, and we would love to put them to use.
A lot goes on behind the scenes to make sure the Calgary Dream Centre can continue to change lives. We need volunteers to spend some time in our office helping out with paperwork, filing, printing, and other simple administrative tasks. Your time and attention can help us stay on track and reach more people.
We need individuals with extensive work experience and a strong network to join one of our committees or boards to support the Dream Centre. Our committees help us plan events and provide our organization with strategic direction. If you have the experience and network to help us raise funds and drive our organization forward, we would love for you to volunteer on one of our committees.
Everybody has a few areas of expertise. You can put yours to good use by helping the men and women we work with learn valuable life skills or healthy habits. Financial help, career advice, help with personal wellness, cooking, cleaning, and plenty of other tasks could make a huge difference in someone’s life.
We need dedicated volunteers to help out in our full-service dining room and handle some of its many responsibilities. Roles include helping to serve lunch or dinner once per week, preparing emergency food hampers, and supporting our busy meeting rooms by overseeing setup as well as coffee and tea service.
This role is perfect for the hands-on handyman or woman looking to give back to their community. Minor repairs and routine maintenance are an ongoing need for the Dream Centre and our community homes. You could help us make sure all of our participants are safe and comfortable.
This volunteer opportunity is for teams of people who want to give back through hands-on experience. You will be doing maintenance work at one or more of the Calgary Dream Centre’s community homes where men and women start their new lives.

Your team can create a meaningful experience for our clients by sponsoring and serving a special lunch or dinner. Sponsorships start at $550, and could range from quesadillas to chicken parmesan. This is another opportunity that’s perfect for groups who want to directly serve and interact with people at the Calgary Dream Centre. We are also always looking for sponsors to help us provide special meals like holiday dinners. In addition to sponsoring the meal, your team can volunteer to serve at the event, interacting with our clients and helping to make the holidays feel special.
This volunteer opportunity is for groups who want to directly serve and interact with people at the Calgary Dream Centre. Round up some coffee, donuts and board games and spend a meaningful and fun evening with The Calgary Dream Centre’s clients.

Recovery is hard work, and our clients always welcome a little bit of fun.
