Volunteerism is an integral component of The Good Samaritan Society. For over 60 years the organization has relied on the donation of time and talent from volunteers.

You bring strong team building skills, an open mind, flexibility, integrity and the ability to influence and facilitate change. You will also have a strong desire to adapt to the changing needs and trends that are taking place in the area of volunteerism. 



A post-secondary diploma in Volunteer Program Administration (or equivalent) is required. You have a minimum of 3 years experience in volunteer management.


You are a self-directed individual with excellent time management and interpersonal skills. You have the ability to communicate effectively, build and maintain good interpersonal relationships, and work in a multi-disciplinary team environment. You have a genuine interest in working with the aged and chronically ill.
