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 is best suited to small ‘bubble’ groups of family or friends who are looking for outdoor activities to enjoy, or workplace groups who are looking to give back in the neighbourhood.
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.
Community Lunch Volunteers
Everyone is invited to lunch at Gordon Neighbourhood House. Community Lunches are an opportunity for community members to enjoy a meal together, meet new people, and catch up with friends in a casual environment. We are looking for volunteers who can help us deliver this program.
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.
