How to become a volunteer?

Please complete the application form on our new volunteer software, Better Impact.

*If you have any questions regarding your BetterImpact account or the application, please contact Carina at volunteer@burnabynh.ca

After submitting your form on BetterImpact, you will be prompted to book a quick informal interview with us by emailing Carina Fu, South Community Engagement Supervisor (Email: volunteer@burnabynh.ca) or Ann Ryu, North Community Engagement Supervisor (Email: annr@burnabynh.ca) your availability between Mondays to Fridays. This is so we get to know a bit more about you, your interests and skills, and help you find the right volunteer opportunity match.

After your volunteer interview, you will be sent either a link or a letter to obtain a free criminal record check.

We will contact your non-family reference (friend, neighbour, classmate, or colleague) listed in your application. If possible, please provide their email as it helps expedite the process.

Online orientations will be conducted online. Once you complete your interview, a sign up link will be sent to you.

Upload your photo onto the Better Impact site when you create your volunteer account.
