Volunteer at Baycrest

Baycrest is lucky to have over 2,000 dedicated volunteers. Our volunteers offer their expertise, skills, talents and companionship to brighten and help enrich the lives of the clients we serve.

Throughout the campus our volunteers can be found assisting at meal times, helping and participating in cultural events, working in our gift shop and café and in many other areas.

We have an active youth volunteer program. We welcome students year-round as well as during the summer months. Click here to read about our Youth Volunteer Program.

Baycrest is committed to creating a role for volunteers where they are valued and respected for their contribution. The Department of Volunteer Services is here to make sure that each volunteer has an enjoyable and productive experience.

Our department is the liaison between you and the Baycrest staff requesting your services. If you would like to volunteer at Baycrest, please check the How to Apply page or contact our staff at 416-785-2500 ext 2572.
