Volunteer With Us
Volunteering is a way to make a meaningful contribution to your community. CAN Council Great Lakes Bay Region is happy to help you find the right volunteer opportunity based on your interests and skills.
General volunteer opportunities
We have many different types of volunteer opportunities (PDF) to consider.
The investment of your time and talents is an invaluable asset to the CAN Council. Interested in helping? Complete a volunteer application (PDF). If you’re a part of an organization who would like to volunteer, please complete a group volunteer application (PDF).
All CAN Council volunteers receive a thorough background check and an orientation prior to beginning their first volunteer assignment.
CASA volunteer opportunities
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a special type of volunteer utilized by the CAN Council and other children’s advocacy organizations nationwide. A CASA volunteers 12 to 20 hours per month advocating on behalf of a child or sibling group in the court system due to abuse or neglect. Prospective CASAs must complete a volunteer application (PDF), an interview with the CASA staff and a background check. Individuals selected to become CASAs must complete a 40- to 50-hour training course prior to beginning their service.
