In-Clinic Role:

This opportunity occurs in blood donor clinics where volunteers are responsible for creating a welcoming and comfortable experience for blood donors. This is typically a re-occurring role (ie –a few shifts per month) and takes place in either our mobile or permanent clinics. This role focuses on interaction with donors and staff with the main priorities to provide a positive experience for donors during their donation process, provide information to donors about Canadian Blood Services programs and activities and to assist with clinic flow.

This opportunity is suited for individuals available during clinic hours and is also suited for those interested in making an on-going contribution on a regular basis.

If you are interested in supporting donors during the donation process, being in a clinic setting, meeting new people as well as connecting with those in your community, this may be an opportunity for you.

Volunteer Leader:

Our volunteer leaders use their leadership skills to help coordinate and host blood donor clinics in their community, workplace or by providing leadership in our permanent clinics. In this role, volunteers set-up mobile clinics in partnership with staff; recruit, train and schedule volunteers as well as promote upcoming clinics in their community.

If you are interested in contributing and developing leadership skills, are connected in your community and would like to be involved in something a few times a year, this may be the opportunity for you.

In-Community Role:

This opportunity involves participating in community events (WYT?, community fairs, speaking opportunities) with a focus on recruiting new donors and promoting upcoming clinics and is flexible in terms of scheduling. This is a great opportunity to volunteer with groups of people in local communities as well as raise awareness about the importance of donating blood. This is also a great role for individuals who may want to volunteer a few times per year with a varying schedule as well as those who are interested in meeting people in their community.

If you are interested in volunteering in a role with a flexible schedule, speaking to people about the importance of donating blood, this may be the opportunity for you.

Youth Leadership Team Member:

This role is similar to the in-community volunteer role however is suited for those between the ages of 17-25. Members will be volunteering in their community, recruiting new donors and promoting the importance of donating blood. There is also an opportunity to engage your school through the Young Blood for Life Program.

If you are interested in volunteering in a role that offers a flexible schedule, speaking to people about the importance of donating blood and are between the ages of 17-25, this may be the opportunity for you.
