Tumbler Ridge is a community that has the great fortune of being able to access Victim Services. Victim Services provides trained volunteers to help those in need within our community. The volunteers provide support during times of crisis resulting from crime or other trauma.
As a volunteer I am part of a team that believes in reaching out a helping hand to those in times of crisis .
Each volunteer completes a free training program that consists of valuable information presented in a fun-filled, relaxed atmosphere. Once the training is over, your volunteer hours commence. This only takes up four hours of a night per week which means that I am still able to have a full-time job, participate part-time in post-secondary education as well as participate in other activities that our community has to offer. Being a part of the Victim Services? team of volunteers has not only taught me about important issues and allowed me to serve my community, but I have also gained some close friends.
