Volunteering is an opportunity to have fun, meet new friends, learn new skills and put existing ones to good use. It's also a chance to be part of a team that makes a difference in the lives of many people in our homes. Volunteers are essential to providing residents with personal interactions and opportunities to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom. Jubilee Residences works with youth and adult volunteers as well as partner schools.
Porteous Lodge & Stensrud Lodge
Potential volunteers can set up an appointment to meet with a volunteer coordinator at Porteous Lodge or Stensrud Lodge or with our Foundation’s community relations leader to explore options available for an experience that meets your needs. All volunteers must fill out a volunteer application form.

Jubilee Residences Foundation
As a volunteer you chose the amount of your time commitment to the Jubilee Residences Foundation. Donating your time allows proceeds from fundraising activities to go directly toward equipment, projects and programs at our lodges.
Help organize a special event, donate time on event day, sell event or raffle tickets, deliver newsletters, help with administrative work or sit on a project committee. Donating time adds up to real dollars-dollars we spend directly on new equipment as well as programs and projects to enhance resident quality of life
If you’re thinking of volunteering, talk to us. We have a choice of events and programs that could use your special skills … and many different levels of time commitment.
Volunteers are required to participate in a two-hour orientation and welcoming session before starting their activities.
Criminal Records Check
Volunteers 18 years of age and older are required to complete a criminal records check. When registering to volunteer, you will be provided with signed documentation to submit so police will wave the $25 fee. Fees are only waived by police for volunteers.
