Carya Calgary

For over 100 years, Carya has been dedicated to supporting individuals and families through counselling, education, community development and in-home assistance, school-based support and more. We help thousands of Calgarians every year to realize their potential, and we love it when others want to help, too!

Our volunteer needs are project-based and flexible to meet the needs of individuals, groups, or corporate volunteers. We currently have opportunities available at our Village Commons and Bowmont Commons locations. We encourage you to browse the various opportunities to learn how you can make a difference, what you'll receive out of the experience and what makes it enjoyable!

Our volunteer mission statement, as written by our amazing volunteers at Village Commons:  Volunteering to create an inclusive safe space for everyone who comes to Village Commons to connect with others and/or contribute to the space.
