 Current Openings:

Seniors Volunteers

We are looking for committed and understanding volunteers to assist with the delivery of our seniors programming. This includes assisting with our TAPS seniors’ lunches and other social programs.

Family Place Volunteers

Whether you have previously worked with kids, studied early child development, or would like to gain more experience supporting early years/family programs and events, there is space for your unique experience and skills! You can support our Family Place program in different ways: 

  • General Support with Family Drop-ins: setting up arts & crafts stations, interacting with kids ages 0-5, leading circle and/or storytimes (any language is welcome!), etc.
  • Sharing your Skill: if you have any skills/knowledge that you think could benefit families in the community, tell us about it! Some of the previous volunteer-led workshops include Chiropractor-led wellness sessions; Family Yoga; Art Classes.
  • Special Events: support with facilitation of the special family-friendly events: greeting guests, setting up the space, clean-up, food serving, etc. 
  • Childminding during Special Events: with support from staff, you would mind kids ages 2+ during special events (parents/caregivers in the same building). Previous ECE experience or current studies aimed at early child development are preferred. 

Community Clean Up Volunteers

This volunteer opportunity forms part of our Clean Team Program and information about our Community Clean-Ups can be found at:  Clean Team Program and Community Clean-ups at GNH

Community Gardens Volunteers

Gordon Neighbourhood House has several planter boxes across the West End. We are looking for volunteers who can take on the responsibility of stewarding our garden spaces.

Skill Sharing Volunteers

We believe that everyone has a skill to share! We are looking for volunteers who can share their skills with the community through facilitating in-person classes, groups, or workshops.
