Become an ACAP Cape Breton Volunteer!


While you’ll want to make a real difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others. Volunteers get a lot out of the experience too. At ACAP Cape Breton we believe that good volunteering is rewarding for everyone involved.


Get back into work - It’s a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience. You can also try out different types of work to get a preview - which can really help you if you’re looking for a job or want to change direction.


Improve your confidence – You’ll learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to - this can be a real confidence boost.


Improve your health - While you’re busy giving back to your community you could also be getting healthier!  Research has found that volunteering can do everything from helping you to sleep better to boosting your immune system. 


Meet new people – You’ll may meet people from different cultures and backgrounds that you might not normally.  Volunteering with people who are as passionate about a cause as you are, is a great way to meet like-minded people.

ACAP Cape Breton

The Atlantic Coastal Action Program (ACAP) Cape Breton is an environmental non-profit community organization and registered charity.


ACAP Cape Breton has a vision for a community in which local people are actively engaged, working and learning together to build healthy and sustainable communities.


Established in 1992, the original mission was to develop a comprehensive ecosystem management plan for the watershed area of industrial Cape Breton.


ACAP Cape Breton has grown into a dynamic group that integrates environmental, social and economic factors into projects focusing on action, education and ecosystem planning.
