I feel so fortunate to be involved with CAWST and be part of "making waves." I always wanted to do something meaningful beside my normal survival business and CAWST made that dream come true. You caught my dream!We treasure our volunteers. Since, 2001 volunteers have contributed over 39 person-years to CAWST's operations. We are always looking for self-motivated individuals with passion and enthusiasm for international development. In return we commit to providing a fun, engaging, diverse, challenging and a supportive volunteer environment.

There is usually a diverse array of opportunities to take advantage of including technical support, translations, IT, research, administration, youth presentations and community booths. You don't have to live in Calgary to get involved! If there is something you think you can do for us and don't see it posted, please get in touch! We love to hear from people with a variety of skills and experiences.
If you live in Calgary and you want to find out a bit more, come get to know us and take a tour. We host Coffee @ CAWST every last Wednesday of the month at 6 pm in our office.
