Where do I volunteer?
All of Volunteer Toronto's volunteer opportunities come from registered non-profit and charity organizations in the City of Toronto (Etobicoke, Toronto, North York, York, East York and Scarborough). These organizations provide services in the arts, health, education, social services, sports and more.
Volunteer Toronto does not accept requests for volunteers from individuals.
What will I do as a volunteer?
There are many different volunteer positions. A volunteer may assist an agency’s clients directly or help with administrative or organizational duties (examples – serving meals at a drop-in centre, editing content for an agency newsletter, helping to organize a special event). Volunteers do not replace paid staff.
How much time do I need to volunteer?
Most volunteer positions ask for two to four hours a week and a minimum three month commitment. There are also positions where you can volunteer for shorter periods - once a month or once a year at special events.
