Student Volunteers

VolunteerNeighbour 2 Neighbour welcomes students looking to help us in our mission to improve the quality of life of our neighbours. Weekly, occasional events and student placement opportunities are available. We also offer opportunities to put into practice the skills you’ve gained in your studies and build your resume!

Attending an information session and an orientation are part of the volunteer acceptance process. Contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services for dates, or apply and receive upcoming dates in the confirmation reply.

Post-secondary Students

We offer college and university students the opportunity to learn about poverty reduction and alleviation in our community. Contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services to discuss a specific idea on how to become involved, or apply to volunteer.

High School Students

Weekly opportunities for 40 Community Involvement hours in July and August, and daily during the December break!

Apply soon! It could take 3-4 months before a volunteer role becomes available.

Students less than 16 years old may volunteer in some roles, but must be accompanied by an adult.

During the 2016/17 school year, high school students can attend an orientation session on these P.A. days: Friday November 4th, 2-3:30 p.m. or Friday, March 3rd, 1:30-3 p.m. Students can also attend an orientation session on February 2, 6-7:30 p.m.

If you want to volunteer weekly in the summer, you must attend an orientation session before June. Check here for 2017 orientation dates. Apply early to avoid disappointment.

Co-op, Service Learning and Internships

Every semester, Neighbour 2 Neighbour places students looking for a work experience in social service, community food or poverty prevention programming. Contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services to discuss your course requirements and inquire about opportunities.
