Youth Mentoring Program 

The Youth Mentoring Program pairs volunteer adult mentors with individual youth to participate in recreation activities. As a result, new and lasting relationships help youth foster a positive sense of identity and connection.

The Youth Mentoring Program provides opportunities for:

  • Youth to build meaningful relationships with caring adults
  • Youth to develop a positive sense of identity
  • Youth to take part in activities that they enjoy

Please contact Krista Patterson at kpatterson@community-connections.ca to learn more about becoming a Volunteer Mentor.

Food Programming

Volunteers in this role will be helping in three ways:

Sorter
Volunteers will sort the fresh food that comes in each morning. The fresh food that we receive each day has to be sorted into three categories: food that our guests can use, food for the animals, and food for compost.

This position requires minimal lifting.

Weigher
All fresh food that we receive needs to be tracked. Volunteers in this role will weigh all incoming food recovery and record data into an app.

This positions requires you to lift 10-50 lbs/box.

Cleaning Crew
Volunteers in this role will be tasked with making sure cleanliness is maintained throughout the shift. Duties will be include washing totes, organizing bins, and other cleaning duties.

Event Volunteers 

Every once in a while, there are extra hands needed for the food drive, holiday programming, or other events. This would likely include a variety of tasks varying times of the year. If you would like to be on our contact list for casual events, let us know! 

 

We require food volunteers 5 days a week. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays from 9:45am – 12:15pm and Wednesdays from 3:45pm – 6:15pm. We love when individuals maintain a weekly commitment, but will happily accept casual volunteers  on a per need basis. 

If you are new to the community, this is a great way to get to know people and learn about other opportunities in the community. 

If you are interested in volunteering either on a committal or casual basis, please email Hannah at hwhitney@community-connections.ca
