Volunteer Opportunities

Who Are Volunteers?

  • Individuals who wish to enrich a child’s and/or family’s life, enhance their skills, experience personal growth and stay active in our community
  • They could be students, employed, retired
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Have time available to commit weekly, biweekly or monthly
  • Willing to provide two references, an up to date criminal record clearance and vulnerable sector screening report and a consent for a child welfare record check
  • Willing to participate in an interview, screening and orientation process

 

What do Volunteers do?

Volunteer Drivers

Volunteer drivers can drive infant, children, and youth to family visits, camp, school, and various appointments. Drivers are reimbursed for mileage and parking expenses. Some drives are “one time” drives (such as an appointment) and some are “ongoing” (such as to school, or weekly visits), so there are varying needs for drivers. If you only have limited time available, you may still be able to help!

Volunteer Mentors

Volunteer Mentors spend time with a child/youth or adult encouraging their growth and development in key areas. Tasks may vary according to the needs of the family or child/youth’s age/needs/behaviour, etc.  A child/youth may reside in their family home, a kinship home, or a foster/group home.

All volunteers receive orientation, training and ongoing professional support, as well as reimbursement for related out-of-pocket expenses.
