Volunteer Opportunities

Sharing Time and Talents

“The Value of One…The Power of Many”

The goal of the volunteer department at the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton is to support and enrich services provided by staff in accordance with the mission of the Society.

Our volunteers are people looking for extraordinary opportunities. They share their time and talents, they make new friends and they bring meaning and purpose to their own lives and to the lives of people they touch. They act as mentors, tutors and special friends. Volunteer drivers take children to and from appointments, supervise visits with their families, and other scheduled meetings. Some of our volunteers support our special events by selling tickets, soliciting support, acting as greeters and promoting our cause.

Join our team of extraordinary Volunteers and make a difference in the life of a child!

What’s in it for you?

  • The satisfaction of helping a child
  • A rewarding activity to fill spare time
  • An opportunity to make new friends
  • Flexible hours and time commitments
  • Mileage allowance
  • Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses
