For the safety of our volunteers we have paused all of our volunteer programs at Island Health during the COVID-19 epidemic.  

Please check back to the Volunteer Resources + Engagement page for current information about the re-opening of these programs.

Applications are now open for the Step Up Youth Program. Visit our Step Up Youth Program volunteer page for information about this program for youth ages 14 to 18 (grades nine to twelve).
