BC - Circle of Friends
MCC BC Office
Circle of Friends is a new pilot program of the Mennonite Central Committee BC, modeled after MCC Ontario's program, in which groups of 2-3 volunteers form a "circle of friends" around an individual transitioning from homelessness or shelter living back into the community.
Be a Restorative Justice Volunteer
MCC’s Restorative Justice volunteers help individuals find healthy ways to deal with harm and conflict. Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) volunteers meet with individuals with sexual offending histories, helping them transition back into communities.
Be an Indigenous Neighbours Volunteer
MCC Canada's Indigenous Neighbours program strives to build respectful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. Volunteers assist in facilitating opportunities for MCC constituents through the Blanket Exercise and by supporting Indigenous Artisans through the Niska Pop-up Market. In response to COVID-19, our Blanket Exercises are on hold, but we are happy to announce that our Niska program is once again looking for volunteers to help facilitate sales at events as health regulations permit.
Be an MCC Champion
Join the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale Quilt Committee in raising over $100,000 for MCC's relief, development and peace work. Connect your local congregation to MCC as a volunteer Congregational Representative. Or help MCC to share our gratitude to all who contribute to the work of peace and justice through MCC as a Donor Services Volunteer.
Circles of Support and Accountability
Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) is an MCC restorative justice project that works to help reduce the risk of re-offence by assisting and supporting persons with a history of sexual offences re-integrate back into the community and lead safe, responsible, and accountable lives.
Service au Soleil
Le programme de Service au Soleil dure entre 8 à 12 semaines et offre l’occasion aux jeunes adultes de divers arrière-plans culturels. Les participants sont rémunérés pour servir au sein de leur assemblée par le biais d’un projet d’Église leur permettant d’acquérir l’expérience du service chrétien.
