1. Phone Abbotsford Hospice Society at 604-852-2456 and indicate which of the above training sessions you are interested in
2. Schedule an appointment with our Volunteer Coordinator for an intake interview (Please allow 30-45 minutes for this appointment).
3. If you are accepted into our volunteer training program, you will be contacted within 1 week of your interview by the palliative services manager to begin the application process.
Please note that although we do our best to accommodate all applicants, due to limited enrollment and the number of applications we receive, submitting an application does not necessarily guarantee admission to Abbotsford Hospice Society volunteer training.
Volunteering at Abbotsford Hospice can be a demanding and challenging opportunity, yet a very rewarding and fulfilling one. We look forward to hearing from you.
