denim dayVolunteer Opportunities and Student Placements at Avalon Centre

Avalon Centre does not have the resources to operate a formal volunteer program. Volunteer opportunities are limited to our Board of Directors. On occasion, we may take volunteers with prior experience working at community based women’s organizations, gender justice organizations, and/or sexual assault centres to undertake specific projects such as research, fundraising, public awareness, event planning etc. If you would like to be added to our database of volunteers to receive notifications of volunteer call-outs, please send an email to publicawareness@avaloncentre.ca

Avalon Centre accepts student placements from programs such as: Bachelors of Social Work, Master’s of Social Work, Counselling, Nursing, Medicine, Gender and Women’s Studies, Law, Public Education, etc. The role of students vary depending on thier program and their level of experience. Students are provided experience working with supervision under three programs offered by Avalon Centre: Counselling, Community Education/Training, and the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program (SANE).

If you are interested in a student placement or becoming a Board member, please contact Jackie Stevens at executivedirector@avaloncentre.ca
