Volunteer and Practicum Opportunities


The Golden Family Center needs volunteers from time to time, depending on program needs:

Site Assistance

Occasionally, volunteers support the Golden Family Center with hands-on help during workshops and seminars as well as community displays.

Golden Family Center Board

We are looking for new Board members from diverse backgrounds who bring an understanding of the issues facing families in the Golden area, as well as an appreciation for the challenges facing non-profit organizations. Board members meet as a group about 8 times per year and are occasionally involved in committee work.

A criminal records check is required for all volunteers who work with children or youth (costs are covered by the Golden Family Center) and we ask for an Oath of Confidentiality from all volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact us.

Practicum students

Due to space limitations and limited availability of practicum supervisors we can only occasionally accommodate a student who is completing a practicum towards a bachelor’s or master’s degree in counselling or a related degree.

If you would like to complete a practicum placement with us, please apply in writing. Your documentation can be sent by mail or email. You will find our address information in the Contact Us section.
