Ways to HelpVolunteer with Kindred
We’re born to be nurtured. We’re created to be connected. Connection to others is our source of strength, how we create meaning and where we find belonging. We need connection as we need air to breathe.
At Kindred, we understand that the only way we are able to truly realize the power of human connection is through our community and volunteers that support our desire to invest in the special bond between child and caregiver, provide roadmaps for healing for and from ruptured relations, and inspire confidence in self and others. We are so fortunate to have over 200 dedicated Calgarians who continue to share their time, talents, and hearts with us, but we can always use more! We want to ignite your passion through meaningful opportunities and provide you with the tools to flex your leadership skills while building connections within our programs and services.
Never Too Late was such a good match with my work experience and my desire to participate in a place where people’s lives could be improved by a greater sense of meaning, confidence and purpose. What a wonderful feeling being included in a meaningful way in a joined community of learning and personal change.

“There’s no brighter spark than the connection between a volunteer and their passion. Let’s connect to chat about what would be meaningful for you!” – Loana Valdez, Community Relations Manager
