Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs) provide volunteer opportunities for families to invest in the implementation, development, delivery, and evaluation of MFRC programs and services.

Participants can bring their companions, meet other military family members who share their interests, and acquire new skills in an MFRC setting. When residents participate in the life of their neighborhood, the entire community benefits.

You can do the following things when you volunteer at the local MFRC:

  • Support your area and many others: When individuals consider helping, they usually think of assisting others, but as you’ll see as you go deeper down the list, there’s a lot more to it than that.
  • Boost your self-esteem: Volunteering at your MFRC for a few hours a week, or even a month, can boost your self-esteem. You can improve your self-esteem by volunteering.
  • Assist friends: When we really need aid, we generally turn to our friends first. Volunteering is a fantastic method to keep in touch with friends on a daily basis.
  • Meet new people: Volunteering is a great way to meet new people. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet new military family members who appreciate your values and interests.
  • Consider a different job: People thinking about working in the nonprofit sector often find that helping is a great opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes.
  • Polish your CV: Volunteer experience on a resume demonstrates a desire to help others or work in a specific industry.
  • Learn a new skill: Volunteering allows people to learn how to accomplish things they previously didn’t know what to do.
  • Be a part of something you care about: Volunteering has a lot of advantages. An MFRC’s exterior is spruced up by gardeners. People who enjoy organizing take inventory of toys or resources for welcome packages. Members of the military family attend the MFRC Board of Directors to obtain management experience, meet different friends, and integrate into their new society.

MFRCs and Personnel Support Programs (PSPs) help people adapt to changing demands and inspire residents to take advantage of personal opportunities for growth and development.
