GMFRC Volunteer Program

Volunteers are an essential component of the Greenwood Military Family Resource Centre. Each volunteer enriches and enhances the programs and services that the GMFRC provides. The GMFRC could not offer our full range and variety of programs without volunteer support. Through this partnership, GMFRC volunteers and staff can grow and develop to our fullest potential; we make a point of including volunteering in all aspects of our programs and services. 

Every moment makes a difference for our military families; whether you have an hour a month to offer, or you can volunteer every day. We will match our programs with your interests, your skills, or your desire to learn something completely new. 

Becoming a volunteer is rewarding and provides you with the opportunity to meet new people, to develop skills, and to share your amazing talents with others! You could also gain valuable work experience while generously contributing to the quality of family life in our military community.

Volunteer Opportunities are limited only by your imagination...
