Communications and Development Volunteers

Communications and development volunteers support a variety of initiatives including event planning, fundraising, social media, website maintenance, newsletter writing, community outreach, research and more!

Volunteers will make valuable connections in Vancouver’s non-profit and child and youth serving communities and will acquire real-life experience in communications, fundraising, event planning and administration. Volunteers should have a strong interest in these areas and a passion for advocating for children and youth.

Two volunteers are selected for a four-month term to volunteer in the First Call office one day a week.

Annual fundraising gala

In February each year, First Call holds an exciting fundraising gala. With a silent auction, raffle draw, and hundreds of guests, we work with a special team starting in December to deliver the most enjoyable evening possible. In 2018, we welcomed Grand Chief Ed John as our Keynote Speaker.

We don’t yet know who will headline our 2019 gala, but what we can confirm is that everyone who joins our annual gala organizing team goes home each year with great memories, sincere gratitude from all of us at First Call, and of course a full belly—dinner is included!
