Why Volunteer?

From the very beginning, we have relied on volunteers to make things happen. From our managers to our teachers to those of you who came out to help us clean the walls, everything we do is based on willing volunteers like yourself. 

Volunteering is an amazing way to connect with your community and contribute your skills to building something you care about. At The Learnary, we work to treat our volunteers well and celebrate your contributes often. We hope you'll join in the fun!

The Vancouver Learnary Society is a registered non-profit organization.
