Please note: At this time, onboarding of new volunteers is on hold. This means our Youth Volunteer Program will not be running in the summer of 2021. While we are not processing new volunteer applications, you are welcome to submit an online application and we will notify you when onboarding begins again. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Baycrest volunteers truly make a difference in the lives of our clients and impact almost every area of our organization. Here are a few examples of some of the programs in which volunteers have been involved.
Be a volunteer at mealtime, assist a client with eating or act as a dining room greeter. Eating assistance volunteers receive specialized training in the latest eating assistance techniques
Spend time one to one with hospital patients or residents in our long-term care home. Your friendly face and kind interaction will make a big difference! Activities may include telling stories, reminiscing, playing games, or admiring the artwork around Baycrest
If you play an instrument or love singing, this is a great volunteer opportunity for you. Baycrest clients love music and will benefit immensely from your talent
The Anne and Louis Pritzker Wellness Library is a free lending library at Baycrest. Library Assistants will visit clients rooms to offer books from the library cart and promote library services
Escort clients to and from different programs and socialize with them. Volunteers may assist with the program set-up, help clients find their seats, and help keep the aisles clear
