The Strathcona CPC offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities to choose from. You can specialize in one or two, or do a little bit of everything! 


There are numerous opportunities to partner with the Vancouver Police Department and other community organizations for outreach events in the community. 


We are fairly new to the neighbourhood, and we offer unique opportunities for volunteers to step into leadership roles to help develop and run programs. Volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, skill sets, education, and ages but all have one thing in common — they are interested in making a difference in the Strathcona Community.


The Strathcona CPC takes pride in the diversity and talents of its volunteers. CPC volunteer time is self-directed and you choose which programs or activities you want to participate in to fulfill your 6-hour minimum per month commitment.

I first started volunteering because I was interested in a career in law enforcement, and I heard that CPC's were a great training ground for that. But I have met so many new friends, and it is such an incredible feeling to help keep the people of this neighbourhood safe. Even though my career is going a new direction, I am a Strath CPC volunteer for life!
