There is more than one way to engage in mission work for Canvasback.

Trained Professional

If you are trained professional in the medical, dental or eye field… you are needed.

Advocate

If you would like to become a representative for Canvasback to your church, club, or organization, you can be of great help.

Office Volunteer

If you live near the Canvasback offices in Benicia CA, we might be able to use your help. We are always on the look-out for dedicated, hardworking, volunteers for various jobs, including, stuffing envelopes, phone calling, packing boxes for shipment, and more.

There is a saying that goes like this: “The person who goes on mission is not the same person who comes home because the one who comes home is far better than the one who left.”

If you would like to be considered as a volunteer for Canvasback Missions, please click-on and fill out the volunteer interest form.

WHO WE NEED

Do you work in

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS Currently we are looking for surgical and clinic-based doctors, nurses, and techs in the following specialties: ENT, Gynecology, Orthopedics, Urology, Ophthalmology, and Dental. We often bring radiologists, general surgeons, nurses, OR nurses, pathologists, and more on our trips to aid these specialties.

It is possible we could have a need for cardiologists and dermatologists in the future, although we do not currently conduct trips under those specialties. If your position or specialty is not listed, you can feel free to submit an interest form, but know we may not have an opportunity for you.

OTHER TYPES OF TRIP VOLUNTEERS We occasionally have spaces available for non-medical volunteers like photographers, videographers, handypeople, IT professionals, and clinic assistants on our trips. We are not, however, able to cover the costs for travel, room, or board for these positions. These volunteers will need to fund their own trip, or get sponsored by members of their communities. If you fall under these categories, do not let this deter you from submitting an interest form.

HOW TEAMS ARE ASSEMBLED

Our teams are led by doctors who have previous mission experience with Canvasback. The lead doctors in cooperation with CB, assemble the majority of our teams. Any positions they are unable to fill, or if volunteers drop out, we will fill from our interest pool. Some times these openings become available on short-notice. Let us know if you are interested so we can contact you when openings are available.
