Volunteer your time

From fundraising to frontline services, volunteers are an essential part of Kids Help Phone’s past, present and future. We welcome all people who support our work helping ensure that young people across Canada can always access the support they need.

Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic we have temporarily suspended all in-person volunteer activities. We encourage you to check back as the situation continues to evolve.

Note that some roles may require specific details and training, and you may be asked to submit a police check, attend an interview or provide references. A Kids Help Phone staff member will be available to guide you through the process. Please note that we do not have volunteer opportunities in our counselling centre.
