Volunteer

Join BowWest as we connect people to resources through referrals and advocacy, community partnerships and initiatives. We have listed some ways to get involved—and welcome new ideas from our volunteer corps! All volunteers get the information and support they need to do a fantastic job.

Board Member

The BowWest Community Support Services Society is in a phase of dynamic growth. The volunteer Board has developed a new strategic plan that actively looks for opportunities to continue to serve our clients well. We are especially excited about programs that enable BowWest to help build stronger communities in northwest Calgary.

The Board is open to all. Board work may be especially rewarding for individuals who live or work in one of the communities we serve.

Greeters/Admin support

Welcome people to BowWest by greeting them at the door and answering the phone. You will be helping people fax and copy, assisting them to access the Clothing Room, and handing out emergency food.
