Looking for a Volunteer Opportunity?

At New Visions Toronto, we greatly appreciate the people who volunteer with us. We know that some people would like a short-term commitment while others would prefer a longer relationship.

Volunteers can:

  • Provide one-to-one support and friendship for the people we support.
  • Contribute as team members to special events or weekly activities.
  • Provide support for gardening, painting, and other minor household repairs.

To find more about volunteering in general, contact  Lisa Macdonald, in our Human Resources Department.

If you are interested in volunteering as one of our Board of Directors, contact  Andy Rotsma, our Executive Director.

Help with Fundraising Events and Campaigns  

Volunteering is an opportunity to share your time, talents and abilities with a community minded agency. Our volunteers are a valued part of our team and play a significant role in all areas of our agency, developing lasting relationships with people and helping to enrich their quality of life.

By becoming a volunteer you will make a difference in the lives of people with a developmental disability. You will enjoy a flexible schedule tailored to meet your goals, needs and interests

Volunteering at events and campaigns
If you’re looking for a one-time or short-term role, we invite you to volunteer for a few hours at one of our fundraising events.  Community events, such as our annual golf tournament  involve a number of hands-on tasks such as setting up supplies for the event, welcoming participants and guests, processing donations, helping with on-site activities, promoting NVT’s  messages and cleaning up after a great event –just to name a few!

Organizing events and campaigns
If you are organized, can facilitate meetings and enjoy working as part of a team, become part of our fundraising committee. Your commitment may last several weeks or months, and your time may vary from a couple of hours each month to several hours leading up to an event.

Committee roles may involve recruiting event volunteers and participants, marketing the event, coordinating logistics on the day of the event, sourcing supplies, communicating with sponsors, engaging with the public and your own networks and encouraging them to get involved.

Getting involved as an event leadership volunteer is a great way for you to have fun, build community spirit and raise money for New Visions Toronto.   Contact tchristie@newvisionstoronto.com
