Volunteers are an integral part of the lives of children, youth and families served by Peel Children’s Aid. We will strive to match your skills, interests and availability, with a meaningful volunteer opportunity.
Choose from a wide range of volunteer opportunities:
Volunteers drive children to and from therapy appointments, parental visits and other outings and events. The volunteer driver also ensures that the child reaches their scheduled appointment on time and is left in the care of a responsible adult at the appointment location. Volunteers are needed Monday to Friday during the day. Currently we are needed volunteers who can drive ages 0-4 years old children. Car seat training provided.
Volunteers facilitate visits between parents and children in a neutral setting; the volunteer serves as part of a team at the Pathways program while, supervising visits with the support and direction of the on-site supervisor.
Volunteer tutors assist children with their schoolwork and are supported by the child’s protection worker and teacher to plan work and activities to help the child learn.
Volunteers spend time in a one-to-one recreational relationship and act as a role model to provide support, understanding and guidance to a child or teen. The volunteer plans regular outings and activities with the child or teen, and helps to build and strengthen self-esteem and self-confidence.
Volunteers support various departments with clerical tasks and projects. Volunteers also assist in the areas of Adoption Disclosure, Criminal Injuries Compensation and the Toy Library.
