My name is Brian and I am the volunteer coordinator for UVIC’s Tsukino-Con Anime Convention. Tsukino-con is an all-weekend event taking place February 23rd to 25th 2024 on campus at UVIC. We have volunteer spots open for a variety of different positions and offer an exciting and flexible opportunity for youth who are seeking volunteer hours toward their graduation. We are able to provide reference letters, references, and sign documents required for their graduation transition plan.

Tsukino-Con is a non-profit organization which hosts an exciting and eventful weekend of anime, games, and celebration of Japanese culture on campus at UVIC. We support a variety of charities including Child’s Play, the BC SPCA, Mustard Seed and the UVIC Food Bank. We are in need of team players to join the convention volunteers this year and are hoping to acquire some help from students at your school  who would be interested in being a part of our awesome community.

The volunteer application is available through http://www.tsukinocon.com/. Volunteers must be age 14 to apply. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have written consent from a parent or guardian. We are flexible with time commitments.

Please let me know if you want more information or have any questions at all. Either myself or Zoel, our Volunteer Deputy, will be answering emails. Our volunteer page can be reached through the following link: http://www.tsukinocon.com/volunteer/. If you are interested, we can drop off a promotional poster, and provide you with any information you want.

CREAN’s mission is to deepen connections and improve the lives of youth, families, and their communities by connecting students in a volunteer placement program. Here are some benefits of volunteering:


  1. Volunteering will provide students with employment experience that looks great on their resume and college/university applications.
  2. This is an exciting and great way to engage with and contribute to the community.
  3. Students will have the opportunity to gain self empowerment through acquiring a new skill.
  4. This will allow students to receive volunteer experience/credits which will in turn lead to success on their path to graduation and higher education.

This will be achieved through matching students with one of our community partners for a 120 hour volunteer placement. For more information about the program, this is the link to the description and the application. https://creansociety.ca/volunteerplacement

Juan de Fuca Salmon Restoration Society

  • Signing up to spend a few hours greeting visitors at the front desk is a pleasant way to get out into the community.
  • Using your demonstration and teaching skills to assist with naturalist tours, especially focusing on salmon spawning time, is a way to interact with youngsters and share their excitement as they participate in the progress of salmon in the habitat waterway, or in a dissection at the riverside.
  • Tending the landscaping, predominately natural, of the Centre’s grounds, is another skill that would be appreciated as the grounds continue to take shape.
  • If you are truly interested in fish, perhaps you’d like to take a day a week in season to share the responsibility for doing the hatchery chores
  • Or you could don some waders and go into the river with the fellows and help with the harvesting itself, perhaps using nets, lines or an encircling trap.
