Volunteers assist staff in a wide range of activities at ErinoakKids. Opportunities are available in the mornings, afternoons, evenings and some weekends throughout the school year. During the summer months, we offer programming during the week only. Volunteer opportunities are available at our locations in Halton and Peel regions.
Applicants will be selected to be interviewed. Your application will be kept on file for one year.
During the interview process, volunteer interest areas are matched with services based on ErinoakKids’ needs and the volunteer’s preferences. It is important to us to provide a meaningful and enjoyable experience.
