Your volunteer support helps children, youth, and their families
Family and Children’s Services is only able to provide the programs, events, and support to our children, youth, and families in the Region of Waterloo because of the help of our volunteers. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available from mentoring a child or youth each week to providing support services for our projects, special events, and research.
