Make a Positive Difference in Your Community

Give Your Natural Talent as a Member of the Desert Sun Board of Directors.

We are a registered non-profit society providing a variety of programs in the South Okanagan including a safe house, counselling for children who witness violence, and senior support, among many others. Information on all our programs is available at

We are particularly interested in candidates who have experience with some of the following: business skills, fund raising, public relations, education, finance, legal, or previous board experience.

If you are interested in contributing to a dynamic, caring organization and in strengthening an already active Board, consider Desert Sun. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, and be able to contribute to one meeting a month, plus join a committee that suits their skills.

Thank you for your support.
