• Group Volunteer - Corporate Team Building YWCA

Looking for a great team-building event in Metro Vancouver? Why not volunteer as a group? Corporate volunteering is a great way for your organization and staff to give back to the communities you do business in.

Cook and serve a nutritious meal at YWCA Crabtree Corner in the Downtown Eastside, help beautify the grounds at one of our housing communities or take part in our Escape From Poverty Challenge. We offer a range of volunteer opportunities for small groups and groups of up to 30 people. Please note that priority will be given to groups who make a financial contribution that will support families in need.
