The Agency

The Calgary John Howard Society (CJHS) is a charity that reduces crime and makes Calgary communities safer by helping youth and adults make positive changes and move away from criminal behaviour.

CJHS is committed to restorative justice and an organizational environment that recognizes the dignity and worth of each person. CJHS values diversity and inclusion and welcomes qualified applicants from all walks of life.

The Program

The Volunteer Program has been established to enhance the services offered to our clients and to increase CJHS’s capacity to attract and retain volunteers. We believe that volunteering enhances social connections and that volunteers can fill a unique role in our agency by providing a natural support between the person served, the agency, and the community. We recognize the distinctive contribution that volunteers can make and how their involvement helps us to better reflect the interests, needs, and resources of the greater community, while bringing a fresh and often unique perspective on our work.

The Position

We are seeking the support of a Volunteer Program Coordinator to maintain the infrastructure developed to engage volunteers, to explore agency needs around new volunteer positions, and to build capacity relative to the program. The successful candidate will build on our current program in a positive and meaningful way. This position will work closely with current Volunteer – Volunteer Coordinator and will report to senior management.
