Community is enriched by volunteers.
Are you looking to devote some of your time to volunteering? This is a rewarding opportunity to meet others in your community and share your skills and friendship! We have various volunteer positions to choose from. Which one fits you?
Use Your Skills to Volunteer!
You may have a skill set that the individuals we support could truly benefit from. This is a way of enhancing quality of life through your expertise! Examples: Hair cuts, coach or trainer to motivate fitness, cooking gourmet for cheap, garment sewing repairs, photography; this list could go on.
We ask that volunteers:
- Be at least 18 years old (some positions for youth 16 – 18 years are available too!)
- Make a minimum six-month commitment
- Complete a screening process which includes an application, interview with the Volunteer Coordinator, reference checks, and a police records check.
Return applications to email@example.com or deliver to Elmira District Community Living, 118 Barnswallow Drive, Elmira, ON, N3B 2Y9
For more information, or if you require assistance with your application, contact our Volunteer and Community Relations Coordinator, Jenn Maxwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
