We are always looking for volunteers from all walks of life for all sorts of volunteer roles. We love designers, event planners, accountants, environmental experts, social media whizkids, youth workers, campaigners as well as all of the valuable volunteers who just want to come out to a beach clean and contribute to protecting what we love. We need you!

As a Surfrider Vancouver Island volunteer you will be supported by an amazing local crew of volunteers in your community, and be part of the larger global Surfrider Foundation organization. Your dedication to the protection and enjoyment of our beaches, waves and ocean is amazing! And we thank you. You are the bones of the accomplishments we can achieve – together!

If you are interested in volunteering and would like to be on our volunteer list, get in touch with Sydnie Walters, Surfrider Vancouver Island’s volunteer coordinator. Email:
