Community Living Toronto has over 1,000 volunteers who collectively contribute over 40,000 hours annually to our Association.
Ways to Volunteer at Community Living Toronto
Volunteer with People
Volunteers can provide support directly to people with an intellectual disability through our programs and in the community. The purpose of this involvement is to enter into a relationship with a group or individual in order to meet some of their needs for recreation, socialization, or companionship. This may include tutoring, friendly visiting, emailing or telephoning. Volunteers improve the individual’s quality of life and are a link to the community.
Some volunteers provide support by assisting staff in various capacities, thus allowing our Association to maintain and expand services. Some types of service activities include local fundraising, administration, office support, repairs, and maintenance.
The Board of Directors consists of members who are elected at the Annual General Meeting. It is their responsibility to establish the association’s policies and overall direction. Regional Councils respond to issues at the local level and send representatives to the Board of Directors. Many other volunteers are members of Public Relations and Fundraising Committees, such as Community Rocks, Resource Development and Planned Giving.
