Volunteer at Reach



Volunteers at Reach have been helping children reach their potential for over 50 years. The organization started in 1956 with parents volunteering their time and skills to start a small school in the community of Ladner for 10 children with special needs. Now we have grown to serving close 1,000 children each year with approximately 100 staff and a host of volunteers. Reach volunteers come from all walks of life: from young adults looking to gain new skills, busy executives who are passionate about making a difference, parents of children in Reach programs wanting to give back, to retired professionals offering their valuable skills to a worthy cause. If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please give us a call. We would love to have you join our team.


Currently we are only accepting applications from persons age 16 and over. We appreciate your interest. Please see the opportunities listed below:
