7 Ways to Volunteer Working with Kids

Posted By Volunteer Toronto, August 13, 2018
 Volunteering with Kids

Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

Kids are lots of fun! Whether you’re looking for childcare experience or you just love being around children, volunteering in a children’s program can be meaningful and rewarding. Here are some of our favourite organizations where you can volunteer working with kids:

 

Toronto Public Library—Leading to Reading

The Leading to Reading program runs in libraries across the city. Volunteers partner with a student having reading and homework difficulties—with your encouragement and assistance you can help them get on track.

College Montrose Children's Place

College Montrose Children’s Place offers support to parents and caregivers. They run drop-in programs, workshops, and support groups—possible duties include craft activities, storytelling, or translation and interpretation. They have multiple locations in central west Toronto so you can lend a hand wherever is most convenient.

Ronald McDonald House

Traveling to the city for a child’s medical care can take a serious toll on families. Ronald McDonald House helps alleviate these stresses by offering a place to stay, childcare support, and a wide variety of activities. Find a program that interests you and apply!

St John the Compassionate Mission

St John’s runs a variety of programs serving kids with diverse backgrounds at their Scarborough and Riverdale locations. They particularly welcome anyone thinking about getting into education or teaching.

NUTMEG Soccer

Based in the Bathurst and Dundas area, NUTMEG is always looking for new volunteers to help organize their free soccer programs. You don’t have to be an experienced coach or soccer player—anyone with experience or interest in working with kids can be a great fit.

Centennial Infant and Childcare Centre

Centennial Infant and Childcare Centre offer programs that help children with special needs. Volunteer to provide one-on-one support under the supervision of qualified professionals.

YMCA Family Resource Centre

The YMCA takes on volunteers to help with their play-based programming for children from 18 months–12 years old. Volunteer opportunities are available in YMCA’s Family Resource Center in the Yonge and Wellesley area and in child care centres in the Halton, York, and Durham regions.

 

You can find these opportunities on our website—search by “Organization” to find the non-profit you’re most interested in.

Excited to volunteer with children but not interested in any of these organizations? You can find more opportunities by choosing “Childcare Positions” from the “Category” list. Once you find an opportunity you like apply using the instructions at the bottom of the posting.
