At OILRC, volunteers are a valued and integral part of the services we provide. Volunteers are screened and matched to opportunities according to their individual preferences, skills, interests and availability.
Volunteers can assist with Peer Support activities, provide administrative support at the office, work one-on-one with consumers, participate in fundraising initiatives, apply to be on our Board of Directors, and more!

We are currently seeking volunteers for our Creative Expressions program.
