Volunteering with MRJC

There are many opportunities for individuals to work as part of our team. In some circumstances individuals come to MRJC with the skills needed to function in roles and in others we provide training to those interested in order that they can perform the various duties.

Volunteering with MRJC provides rich learning opportunities, new friends and connections, and meaningful ways to help other people and families in our community.

Successful volunteers will be invited to attend training sessions where required. Training where required is provided by MRJC. MRJC also puts in considerable time and resources into interviewing, screening and training of potential volunteers; therefore, potential direct service volunteer must be prepared to make a two-year commitment to the organization.
