Volunteers play a vital role at Eagles Nest. By volunteering with us you help equip families with the tools they need to create a healthier future.

The majority of our volunteer positions are at Rescued & Restored, our thrift store, where volunteers help sort merchandise, arrange displays, assist customers and photograph items for social media and our online store.  We also have positions available at the HOPE Centre in events and fundraising, maintenance and gardening.  Program support positions are limited and require professional qualifications (e.g. registered therapist, certified coach).

If you are interested in volunteering with us, the first step is to submit our standard volunteer application. After we receive your application, we will connect with you to talk about your interests and experience and where you might fit in our organization.

Due to the nature of our work, volunteer positions with Eagles Nest require a criminal record check and many positions also require a vulnerable sector search.

When I discovered Eagles Nest and its mandate, I felt I found the perfect fit for my desire to volunteer with…(those) who had experienced difficulties and needed support. I am a people person who loves walking and learning alongside those who are working to discover wisdom to improve their circumstances. I'm thankful for the atmosphere and teamwork at Eagles Nest. It is my pleasure to be part of it.
