Volunteers are at the heart of CAG community events and activities. All our events and activities include a dynamic, diverse team of volunteers without whom we could not offer the activities or see the successes we do. We invite you to join us! CAG provides the training. Volunteers provide the excellence.

CAG welcomes youth (14 years+) to volunteer. Whether to complete required high-school volunteer hours, to offer service to the community or to gain experience, we offer unique opportunities that can suit a range of interests and objectives.

If you are interested in volunteering with CAG, we invite you to explore the opportunities below and to sign-up here. For questions or to find out more, contact us at

Commitment and Appreciation

We value our volunteers and the time and energy they put in that brings success for our free community events and activities. We enjoy thanking our volunteers in every way we can, as the important part of CAG they are. We do this through our website, CAG eUpdate and Facebook page, and through other volunteer recognition opportunities and activities that we hope show our amazing volunteers how much we appreciate them, including volunteer recognition events, certificates and appreciation and gift cards.
