Steps off the Street 2019

On Sunday April 14th we will need a number volunteers to help us with our Steps off the Street 4th Annual Run/Walk. Volunteers can work as path marshals directing Runners/Walkers or they can volunteer at our Registration table before the Run/Walk getting all the participants ready to go! Please contact if you are interested in volunteering with us for a few hours that Sunday morning.

Spring Casino Fundraiser

Our Casino Fundraiser is scheduled for Friday May 17 and Saturday May 18 at Cowboys Casino.

Every two years 40 volunteers come together for this two day event. They are trained as a Cashier, Chip Runner or Cash Counter and spend the afternoon, evening and late evening together! This year we are excited to have weekend shifts – tho the people-watching at our Cowboys Casino during Stampede may never be topped!

It’s always a huge celebration when a cheque of around 70, 000 community raised dollars is handed off to The Doorway.

Interested volunteers can sign up for our mailing list to know when shifts are available and get first pick! We encourage you to forward the link to your friends and family to ensure when we send the schedule out early spring you can get shifts together and help us fill all our spots.

Thank you in advance for your impact and your attention to young people in Calgary. Together we will make more change possible!


Community volunteers directly support young people every day in our space! We are eager to welcome and train new volunteers as we grow a stronger and more diverse group of community members to support our young people. Community members working alongside young people, witness individual Planning Processes and LEARN about leaving the streets culture.

We also engage community members with professional skill sets that could contribute to the success of The Doorway!

Please contact  to inquire.
