Abbotsford - Central Abby Ministries

Opportunities to Volunteer!

Abbotsford, the largest municipality in the Fraser Valley, is home to 46 schools and has the third highest proportion of visible minorities in Canada. Youth Unlimited has been running programs and loving youth in this community since 1977.

Youth Unlimited is connected with over 400 youth across Abbotsford. Our youth workers volunteer in six schools in the Rick Hansen, WJ Mouat, and Abbotsford secondary schools' catchment areas. The team's office on Emerson Street (across from House of James near West Oaks Mall) serves as a hub for our Abby team who do most of their work out in the neighbourhoods where they can help youth and their families in their local contexts.


Because of the priority we place on coming alongside youth in their worlds, we volunteer in schools in whatever capacity the principals and teachers find most helpful.  This  includes the academic classroom settings, noon hour supervision, sports team coaching, running the school store, handing out hot chocolate in the  parking lot, noon hours sports, visiting with youth in the Aboriginal Department, and even sitting with students in the hallways to talk with them about the anxieties they are currently experiencing with their friends, family, and academics.  We also lend support to the families of our youth, run sports clubs, wilderness adventures and mentor youth both one-to-one and in small groups.


Every volunteer has their own unique skills and interests.  What are yours?  Where can we fit you in?  No matter if you like baking cookies, writing cards to supporters or something in between, talk to us about what you can get passionate about!

 We can't help but see the hope and potential in every young person we meet. We’re committed to extending Christ’s love to youth who otherwise are falling through the cracks.
