Volunteer with NightShift
We’d love to welcome you to our volunteer team. Before COVID-19, there were lots of opportunities to get involved in NightShift’s street ministry and outreach programs. We are slowly opening up volunteering opportunities again. If you could help for a few hours each week or once a month, during the day in our facility or in the evening on the street, we would love to hear from you.
NightShift relies on volunteers to cook and serve meals, sort and give out clothes, share conversation, drive our ministry vehicles, take shifts to provide nursing or counselling on the Mobile Outreach Unit (MOU), lend a hand in the warehouse, provide administrative support, help organize fundraising events, and pray for our community.

Are you curious about how to get involved with NightShift? Then we invite you to join a Volunteer Introduction Night.
These evening sessions (6:30-8:15 pm) have been taking place via Zoom, but we are starting to offer in-person sessions in 2022.
You will have the opportunity to learn what NightShift is all about, take a virtual (or actual!) tour of our facilities and hear about our plans for the future. It’s also a starting point to get you badged and ready to serve. Spaces are limited but there is a waiting list that you are welcome to join for future dates.
If you are representing a group that would like to serve together, head on over to our group volunteering page to find out we can work together. Please note that we had reduced the number of groups visiting our street outreach in Surrey or Langley during COVID-19, but spaces are opening up again.
FORGE Training Course
Looking to take your service and leadership to the next level? Committed to volunteering at NightShift or elsewhere? Then our FORGE course is for you! FORGE will equip you to serve and lead well. It’s a foundation to help you to understand some of the issues of street life and poverty, and build on that with good communication, compassion and teamwork.
We have moved to a multi-day online format which we host three times per year (March, June and October). Curious? Watch our video and find out how to register!
