Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
Virtual opportunity

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. We focus our work on global health, access to quality education and economic opportunities.  
 
We direct our energy and efforts at government decision makers like party leaders, Members of Parliament and senators because they have the power to improve policies and make the monetary investments needed to end extreme poverty. We also raise awareness by writing letters to the editor (LTEs) and op-eds, using social media, fundraising and more.  
 
Oftentimes the first step is putting these issues on the radar — and keeping the pressure on. It might seem like a small step, but it all adds up into impact.  
 
commitment: 1 year minimum, 1-2 hours per week on average  
 
support structure: Volunteers (virtually) meet in local groups on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.  
 
If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us! *** To volunteer: sign up here: https://resultscanada.ca/join-us/

Memory Visiting Volunteer   Burlington  Halton Hills  Milton  Oakville 
Acclaim Health, Community Support Services
Client's home, apartment, supported living or retirement home (Oakville, Burlington, North Halton)

Clients in the Memory Visiting Program are in need of someone to remind them that they do matter, and to remind them of why they matter. Ask about their interests and their abilities and then use this week after week to guide your conversations and activities.  
 
You’ll provide a friendly social connection outside of the client’s normal social sphere and engage the client in activities or conversations that appeal to the client’s unique interests and abilities. This may involve looking at family photos, going out for a walk or simply sharing coffee and conversation. 
 
You’ll also be giving the family caregiver(s) a short break – a very important part of the support you’re providing. 
 
Training is available to assist you in supporting your client. The training includes suggested activities and strategies you can use to engage your client. Plus, our Care Managers are always available to support you and your client. 
 
COVID-19 Precautions 
Memory Visiting is now in person 1:1 following all COVID precautions.
