Becoming a volunteer involves completing an application, attending an interview and completing volunteer training. We also need to make sure that volunteers are safe people for our children and families to spend time with. For this reason, a police check, personal references and child welfare check are also required.
At some point during the application process, we ask that you view the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with a Disability Act) standards and be familiar with them.
“I've volunteered with a 12 year old for almost 4 years. It has been rewarding to watch her grow into a more confident young lady while tackling challenges in her life with an impressive amount of resilience and grace. She is teaching me as much as I hope I'm teaching her.” a volunteer
We offer training to new volunteers. Please check the listing below for upcoming sessions and let us know at email@example.com when you would like to attend. We hope to see you soon!
