Volunteer Opportunities

Why volunteer with us?

The key to Hope & Cope’s success is the presence of 500 volunteers, 90% of whom have either had cancer themselves or cared for someone diagnosed with the disease, or in some cases, have been both a patient and a caregiver.

These volunteers offer the wisdom of the lived experience, which enables them to truly understand the concerns of patients and their families. Survivorship Day 2014 service with a smileSeeing volunteers who have survived cancer and are doing well is a source of inspiration and hope to many patients.

We are always looking for new volunteers. If you are caring, non-judgmental, a good listener and a team player, bilingual (English/French) or multi-lingual, and are comfortable working with those who have cancer, we would like to hear from you.

Please contact us at 514 340-8255 or write to Hinda Goodman at hgoodman@jgh.mcgill.ca for more information.


Volunteer Management Council Charter

In response to an in-depth survey of Hope & Cope volunteers and subsequent consultations, in the fall of 2018, Hope & Cope introduced a new management structure called the Volunteer Management Council. Composed of volunteers representing a wide variety of areas within Hope & Cope and staff members, the Council will provide leadership and decision-making on volunteer-related issues and report directly to the Board.
