DutiesThere are 2 main volunteer roles at Canadian Blood Services: 
1. In-Clinic Role – In this role, our volunteers oversee donor safety and satisfaction after they’ve made their donation. The volunteers socialize with donors, provide juice and cookies, and watch for adverse reactions. 
2. In-Community Role – In this role, our volunteers go out into their communities to inform the public about the need for blood. They focus on recruiting new and lapsed donors, booking appointments into upcoming clinics, and giving out information to raise awareness about blood donation. In-Community volunteers with specialized training can be ABO Typers. Typers go to special events where we test individuals’ blood types.
