Are you interested in making a positive impact in the Halton community? Do your friends and family tell you that you're great with children and youth? Why not consider sharing your spare time, skills and laughter with a child or youth in need in your community? Our volunteers act as positive role models to children and youth of all ages throughout Halton. In as little as a few hours a month, you can make a significant difference in the life of a child or youth.  
The Halton CAS is dedicated to developing mentorship relationships that reflect the diversity of the communities we serve, and we encourage applications from diverse groups including from Black, 2SLGBTQ, First Nations, Inuit and Metis persons.  
Physical distancing does not have to mean social disconnection – we have adjusted and adapted to ensure mentors and mentees continue their relationships while they may be separated due to Coronavirus COVID-19.
