Volunteering at Carnegie Centre

Volunteers are the driving force behind the delivery of many of the programs and services provided at Carnegie Community Centre. Our volunteers, many of whom are residents of the Downtown Eastside, make positive contributions to the community they serve every single day.

Now more than ever, we need volunteers to help deliver delicious meals and other essential services to Downtown Eastside community members. Consider joining us, fill out an online application form.
