Anyone can volunteer! Youth and students (minimum of 14 years of age), adults, retirees, families, community groups, businesses…all we ask from you is your enthusiasm, dependability and commitment.
Active post secondary student volunteers who volunteer at the Janeway, General and St. Clare’s Mercy hospitals are eligible to apply for scholarships offered through their associated hospital auxiliaries. As well, active student volunteers may also apply to become summer students at various sites throughout the region. These positions are funded through federal and/or provincial grants.
Contact the Coordinator, Volunteer Resources for more details.
