Volunteer Feature Stories
What to do when you retire: have fun!
George volunteers with DIGA because “It’s very fulfilling and it’s fun for us [woodshop volunteers] to see people enjoy themselves. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that!”
Be kind, whenever possible.
After starting her journey as a volunteer with BCMOS, Maria realized that the organization is so much more than a program for people to stay active. She sincerely values BCMOS because “…it provides people who have disabilities with the opportunity to experience the greatness of being outdoors and that’s so important.”
Explore. Dream. Discover.
“I appreciate the challenge of being out in the water, facing and working with our planet’s natural elements. In our current society, we find ourselves sheltered from nature, but on the water one has the opportunity to learn from it.”
Service Before Self.
A valued Tetra volunteer, David Spears applies mechanical engineering expertise to remove barriers for those with disabilities by creating adaptive technologies that provide improved independence.

The Disability Foundation and its affiliated societies comply with COVID-19 protocols as determined by the provincial health authorities (e.g., BC: https://www.worksafebc.com/en/covid-19). Our workers and volunteers will follow such protocols and must be vaccinated to work with and within our organizations (offices, program locations, and home visits), unless a medical exemption is in place. To protect our workers and volunteers, we expect our clients and partners to comply with COVID-19 health and safety regulations which means fully vaccinated unless there is a medical exemption.
Thank you for making everyone’s health and safety the top priority.
