MADD Upper Fraser Valley offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for community members who reside in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Agassiz, and Hope. We hope that you will find your involvement with MADD Canada to be as rewarding and fulfilling as our current volunteers have experienced. The following volunteer opportunities are available through MADD Upper Fraser Valley.
