Inspiring and empowering individuals to find meaningful purpose in their communities through volunteering.
We're Captain Scott Legacy Society
Supporting volunteers since 2019
We're a Canadian, registered charity that works closely with nonprofit and charitable organizations to foster welcoming, accessible, and impactful volunteer spaces.
Our projects encourage change-makers from all walks of life into volunteering spaces and recognize the unsung heroes in our community who make our community a better place for everyone!
What We Do
Vancouver Volunteer Festival 2024
During Volunteer Month, let's come together as a community and celebrate the magic of volunteering!
Take part in our awesome lineup of volunteer and volunteer skills training events during April 2024.
Make some new friends, get to know about local organizations around you, and lend a hand to your neighbours - all at the same time! That's your invite to the volunteer bash at the end of the month with entertainment, food, and fun!
LEAD Youth Leadership Program
Our after-school program for grade 6 and 7 students is all about sharing the joy of helping others. Youth learn about service leadership and volunteerism through mentorship with high school students, experiential learning projects led by themselves, leadership skill workshops and volunteer opportunities with external local organizations.
Volunteer Leaders Club
Our Youth Volunteer Leaders Club makes it easy for young people to get into volunteering! Elementary school students as young as five years old can pick their own volunteer activity pathway to get involved in their community. This Club will be available at the end of December 2023 and we're currently looking for youth ambassadors in elementary and high school to test out some exciting and fun activities!
Share the Volunteer Spirit!
Become a Volunteer Ambassador
We're all about spreading kindness and making a difference, so our Volunteer Ambassadors help us inspire even more people to volunteer!
At least once a month, Volunteer Ambassadors young and old come out to volunteer with us as a group at local community events and activities. It's always more fun to volunteer together— bring your friends and family! This fantastic lineup of family-friendly and inclusive events are pre-scheduled so you can make your calendars in advance.
Let's have a blast volunteering with friends and family. Come join the fun and let's make our community thrive together!

Our Land Acknowledgement
Captain Scott Legacy Society respectfully acknowledges that we live, work, volunteer, and play on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
We value the Indigenous cultural relationships to the land, animals, and people. We strive to promote volunteerism that respects and supports Indigenous culture and the unceded lands on Turtle Island whenever possible.
As a group of settlers and immigrants, we raise our hands in gratitude to our hardworking volunteers, resilient communities, and beautiful lands.
