Description & Details

Our Organization 

Community Living Toronto is one of the largest agencies of its kind in North America. Community Living Toronto is a dynamic, innovative organization committed to a vision of promoting an inclusive community.  As a leader in the field, Community Living Toronto offers supports to over 6,000 individuals with an intellectual disability and their families including residential and day supports, assistance with employment, community supports, early childhood services and respite.

How to Apply / Contact

Jumpstart Literacy is a great annual literacy program offered for adults with an intellectual disability who are interested in building their literacy skills. This program focuses on English literacy and selected sessions are devoted to building mathematics literacy skills as well.  

We are currently looking for volunteers to join our team!  If you are patient, helpful, enjoy sharing your knowledge and are eager to give back to the community, this is an amazing opportunity for you!  Experience working with people with an intellectual disability is desirable, but not necessary. This opportunity is ideal for future educators or Resource Teachers who can get some hands on experience in planning special education curriculum, materials, visual aid, etc. 

This program runs every Saturday starting September 8, 2018 - June 22, 2019, from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM at the North York Regional Office located at 1122 Finch Ave. W., Unit 16.
