We need an occasional Driver, and we invite this individual to be a Member of our Development Committee, so that he or she will feel part of the organization, as a valued member of our group's decision- making process.This membership is an invitation, not a requirement. We hope to be able to cover fuel costs, but we need to be frank - we will not know till February whether the fuel costs can be covered. In the meantime, there will not be much call for a Driver. We are planning projects that will require quite a bit of getting around, so we hope that the arrangement can be paid for through a special fund-matching project with the City. There might rarely be a need to pick up an individual who lives in Hamilton, needing to get to the Burlington Public Library to make a presentation.

Peer Mentor   Burlington 
Bridge (The), Halton, From Prison to Community
In the community in Halton or meet with clients at the Burlington office 460 Brant St. Unit 209
The Bridge Halton Allyship Program has two different streams: 
1. COMPANION  
A companion does not require personal experience with the justice system. Companion’s become an ally by providing support to program participants as they reintegrate into the community. 
 
2. PEER MENTOR 
A peer mentor is someone who has lived experience with the justice system and wishes to use that experiential knowledge to provide peer support to program participants. 
 
Peers and companions will meet with program participants in the community once a week for a minimum of an hour. There will be "check-ins" and "check-outs" with the volunteer coordinator. There will be a monthly meeting for volunteers to get together and debrief their volunteer experience.  
 
Peers and companions support program participants with their reintegration goals and do not perform counselling or case management duties. Peers and companions will support clients to be independent and provide guidance when a program participant is struggling. The only difference between the two roles is a peer has experiential knowledge and a companion does not have that lived experience. Therefore, the dynamic of the relationship will be slightly different. However, both roles are equally important to help program participants reintegrate back into the community and reduce the barriers of oppression.
