If you have a few hours to spare a week, enjoy driving and love children then this is the volunteer role for you. Volunteer drivers take children and on occasion parents, to various appointments: therapy sessions, family visits, counselling sessions, court dates, support groups, and other important meetings.
Drivers are currently needed during day time hours. Some do a specific drive or two each week, others are called upon on a daily basis and yet others do once a month. We are always in need of reliable, readily available volunteer drivers.
Several special events are organized each year where volunteers are needed to assist with organizing and running the event. Events such as: golf tournaments, diversity day events, racquet club events, dragon boat races and most importantly our annual fundraising Stardust Gala.
The funds raised at these events goes towards providing programs for children in care, such as bursaries, camps, educational programs and seasonal gifts through the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton.
Volunteers are required to tutor children/youth in all subjects, especially math, English, science and French.
The volunteer will assist a child to experience success in learning through a supportive one-to-one relationship.
The children requiring assistance can range from age 6-18 and all academic levels.
Scheduling can be arranged directly with the caregiver at your mutual convenience.
Volunteers are required to sort the food into individual grocery bags and then deliver the food directly to the families. The volunteer could choose to do either the bagging or the delivery, or both. The time commitment is once a week, every Wednesday. Confidentiality and commitment is of the utmost importance since these families rely on this service to help feed their children.
We are seeking dynamic and energetic individuals to volunteer working with other team members to identify and solicit donations from potential donors and sponsors in our community. Secured donations which highlight businesses will be showcased at our annual 2019 Stardust Gala "From Halton with Love" (April 2019).
- Connect with your neighbours, members of the community, businesses, family and friends (online or in person) with a donation/sponsorship kit.
- Seek donations, as well as share information about the work of the Children's Aid Foundation of Halton.
The funds raised at the Stardust Gala will benefit children and youth in care with programs such as bursaries, camps, supplemental educational programs and seasonal gifts. With your help children and youth are put on the path to success. You’re the ONE making a difference and we thank you!
Our program is designed to meet the needs of our students in a learning environment that provides opportunities for blended learning activities with access to both hands-on and interactive materials.
Volunteers are required to assist in supervising individual groups and for general logistics of arrival/departure of the students who attend. This program has proven to be very successful, not only in raising the students’ school averages, but in allowing them to gain confidence and self-respect.
Our volunteers act as positive role models to children of all ages throughout Halton. Individuals are matched with a child/youth in need and spend time doing recreational or social outings in the community. In as little as a few hours a month you can make a significant difference in the life of a child.
