Volunteer with NightShift

NightShift has become an important part of our lives and routine. People will often compliment us for our volunteer work, however the truth is, I feel I get as much as, or more than I give. – Gary

NightShift is the best. Volunteering here will be the last thing I give up as I age. It is truly wonderful what you do. – Rita

 I have been on the street with NightShift for about 3 or 4 months now and have seen some of the miracles first hand…Do not weary of doing good! – Dan

We’d love to welcome you to our volunteer team. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in NightShift’s street ministry and outreach programs. If you could help for a few hours each week or even 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 volunteer support 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.

Volunteer Introduction

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) take place at our location in Surrey. You will have the opportunity to learn what NightShift is all about, take a tour of our facilities and find out how you fit in. It’s the starting point for volunteers to become badged and ready to serve in a variety of roles with NightShift. Please submit your Volunteer Enquiry to kick things off!

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 will host twice a year in 2024 (Apr-Jun and Oct-Nov). Curious? Watch our video and find out how to register!
