Do You Want to Volunteer?

We Need You
The Children’s Aid Society of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin greatly values the efforts of community members who contribute by donating their time and talents to the families and children who need our help. We are currently in need of volunteers to fill a variety of roles that will make a positive impact on the lives of those we serve.

All applicants are subject to a screening process. References, Criminal Record Checks, and interviews are completed prior to program acceptance.

We look for Volunteers who:

  • Are dependable, punctual, mature, responsible
  • Enjoy spending time with children
  • Are open to learning
  • Have good communication skills
  • We will match an appropriate volunteer to a “Request for Volunteer” according to the needs of the client and the volunteer’s skills

Why Volunteer?
Volunteers gain a sense of self-fulfillment, knowledge that you have made a difference, develop skills, gain work experience, develop transferable skills, and increase social awareness.
Volunteers will be given an orientation and offered workshops on various topics during the year.

Volunteers are invited to participate in a Yearly Volunteer Recognition Event in April for National Volunteer Appreciation Week and our drivers are invited to a Christmas Volunteer Driver Potluck.

Mileage reimbursement per kilometre is given for in-jurisdiction drives based on the Agency’s Reimbursement Policy.
