Volunteer Opportunities for Caregivers who have completed C2C


Upon graduating from our C2C programmes, many caregivers are inspired to make a difference to the lives of other caregivers by signing up as volunteers.


Volunteerism is one of CAL’s key pillars and all our C2C classes are co-facilitated by a volunteer trainer. We see the benefits it brings to both the volunteers as well as the programme attendees.


At CAL, our mission is not only to train and support caregivers, but to empower them. Helping others by sharing their own lived experiences helps to achieve this, giving meaning and purpose to all that they have gone through.


Here are some Volunteer Opportunities CAL offers:
