Benefits of Volunteering

Chances are, you or someone you know will be affected by vision loss in your lifetime. Volunteering with CNIB means being at the forefront of innovative programs, services and research for people who are blind or partially sighted.

By volunteering at CNIB you will:

  • Meet personal and professional objectives with opportunities to grow through challenges, goal setting, risk taking and overcoming barriers. We encourage you to share your innovative ideas and your commitment to excellence.
  • Form partnerships with clients, staff and other volunteers. Build relationships, share experiences and support others in achieving their goals. Put your people skills to good use with our team.
  • Use your influence, information and abilities to bring about change. Your leadership skills will help shape opinions, build confidence in group situations, and inspire others.

Your local Coordinator, Volunteer Services will work with you to find that perfect fit. 

The benefits of volunteering are simple. When we say "thank you" to our volunteers, we hear this a lot: "I get way more out of volunteering than I put into it. Thank you!"
