Volunteer

Nothing teaches hope, kindness, courage and compassion more than helping others.

Kerr Street Mission relies on volunteers to help our programs run smoothly. If you are interested in a volunteer role, please take a look at the positions available below.

To apply for a volunteer position, please fill out and return one of the following forms:

• Family Programs and Admin

• Child and Youth Programs

Our organization carefully selects its volunteers, and not all who apply will be accepted. KSM takes its responsibilities in respect of our participants seriously, and screens all applicants thoroughly. As part of our screening process, we require a Criminal Reference Check for anyone over the age of 16, and that the Vulnerable Sector Screening portion is included for anyone above the age of 18. Any applications received that do not include a current (within 90 days of the issue date) police check, will not be reviewed until this requirement is fulfilled.

Once your application and police check have been received we will send you a follow up e-mail to schedule an interview.

Please Note: The application and placement process may take upwards of 4-6 weeks to complete.

Please contact Devon Goodman at 905-845-7485 ext. 207 or volunteer@kerrstreet.com if you would like more information about volunteering at KSM.
