When you volunteer with us, you help serve people who are struggling with poverty and addiction.  Your time, energy, talents, and experience aid missionaries as they work together to provide Christ-centered programs to Manitoba communities.

If you can donate your time, we ask that you consider joining our mission to aid the community. Each person giving of their time to further God’s kingdom at UGM is appreciated.



Volunteers are extremely valuable in the ministry of UGM.  Your time, energy, talents and experience aid missionaries serving together to provide Christ-centered programs to the addicted and the poor men, women and children of Manitoba.  Love and support, in the name of Jesus, can be extended to a greater number of people with the assistance of caring volunteers.  Each person giving of their time to further God’s kingdom at UGM is so very appreciated!
