Opportunity Description:

We are seeking individuals who are passionate about making a difference in the St. John’s community to join our team of dedicated volunteers in the role of Community Volunteer.

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada volunteers, in partnership with regional staff, are making a difference in the lives of children and adults living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Our coast-to-coast network of thousands of volunteers are leaders in their communities, using the gift of time and talents to help people with inflammatory bowel disease by providing professional skills, educating others, advocating for healthy public policy and helping to raise money so that Crohn’s and Colitis Canada can continue to fund critical research, patient programs, advocacy and awareness initiatives.

We encourage you to apply if you are experienced or interested in the following:

Education/Awareness building
Fundraising
Event planning
Volunteer recruitment
Marketing and communications
Acting as a community liaison

Whether it’s helping update information, doing online research or helping us stay active through social media, volunteering remotely is win-win.

Time commitment:

2-3 hours per month from September to June
Additional support may be required leading up to events

What you can expect:

A staff partner to provide training and support
The opportunity to apply and grow your skill set
A collaborative team dedicated to making a difference
The chance to connect with people in your local community

We do require volunteers adhere to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada policies and procedures, including the Volunteer Code of Conduct
