English + Volunteer

Volunteering feels good … and, it gives you the opportunity to practice English!

Victoria – the capital city of British Columbia – is home to many high-profile NPOs and is well-known for volunteerism. In addition, Victoria’s high number of retirees contributes a rich base of knowledge and skills to these organizations.

Why not take advantage of your time at GV by studying English, doing some charitable work, and meeting other volunteers?

GV Victoria’s NPO/NGO partners include:

  • Nature and environmental organizations

  • Horticulture centres / heritage gardens

  • Thrift Store / Recycling programs

  • Event and festival societies

  • Public education & advocacy groups

  • Child & Youth Camps (police record check req’d)
