Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Design For Development Society! Volunteers are our most valuable resource and are critical to the success of DFD and the projects that we run.

As part of our commitment to our volunteers, Design For Development has adopted the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement and is constantly striving to provide our volunteers with the support and recognition that they deserve.

Design For Development currently lists volunteer opportunities on two volunteer portal web sites.

If you are located in and around Vancouver BC, please look for our postings at go volunteer (www.govolunteer.ca/search)

If you would like to volunteer remotely (online), please see our current postings at UN Volunteers (www.onlinevolunteering.org)
