Thank you for choosing to volunteer at this time.
Volunteering is a great way to contribute to your community, meet people, gain skills and experience. Volunteers are an important part of our team. Many of our programs depend on the support of volunteers to be successful.
Guelph CHC is committed to recruiting volunteers:
Volunteer placement is determined by both the applicant and Volunteer & Student Coordinator and is based on best fit with interests and background as well as agency needs. Due to the high volume of applications and limited number of volunteer positions, every application may not be offered a position.
We currently have limited openings for our volunteer roles. Some of the programs that we are currently recruiting volunteers to help support are Notes of Hope and other virtual programs.
At this time we are most in need of Volunteer Drivers for the SEED program and Food Access program.
Please complete this application form click the submit button at the bottom to get the application process started.
Please note: Volunteers are needed for WEEKDAY shifts during the day only.
Please list 2 references that can be contacted in regards to your becoming a GCHC volunteer. References do not need to be located in Guelph!
