Looking for some exciting new volunteer opportunities?

Volunteer Toronto’s Youth Expo is an excellent opportunity for youth to learn all about the many different volunteer positions available in Toronto!

What is the Youth Expo?
The Youth Expo is a one day event for high school students to meet over 80 non-profits recruiting youth volunteers. You'll get to find out what roles they have, ask questions about what they do, and sign up for different volunteer roles that interest you.  

If you've been wondering where to do your 40 hours, then the Youth Expo is the perfect opportunity to explore endless volunteering possibilities!

When and where will it take place?
The 2016 Expo will be on Sunday, October 23, 2016 from 1pm to 5pm at the Ryerson Mattamy Athletic Centre by College station. 

How much does it cost to attend?
The Youth Expo is free! 

Who can attend the Youth Expo?
Any high school students or those interested in volunteer opportunities for youth. 

As Volunteer Toronto covers the city of Toronto, the majority of the volunteer opportunities available will be based in Toronto, anywhere from Etobicoke to Scarborough and as far north as North York. If you live outside of Toronto, you can still attend but probably won't find roles in your local area. 

Can parents or guardians come?
Yes! Parents and guardians are welcome to come with their children. If you're a parent or guardian, you can come without your child, but we strongly recommend having your son or daughter with you, to ensure they are able to meet the non-profits directly and find volunteer opportunities that they will personally find enjoyable. 

Do I need to get a ticket in advance or can I just show up on the day?
We recommend you get your free ticket to the event in advance as it means you can skip the line on the day, but you're more than welcome to show up and register at the event!

Do I need to bring I.D., a resume or anything else with me to the event?
Nope! Just bring lots of enthusiasm and be prepared to talk to the organizations about their roles. It helps if you have an idea of what types of non-profits or what roles you might enjoy most. Check out our suggestions of how to do that here.

Which organizations will be there?

Over 100 non-profits will attend! Scroll down this page to see a list of all the organizations.
