We are currently looking for volunteers at Carleton Place:
- High school level math & science tutors; preferably mornings, flexible days Monday through Friday.
- Specific activities – running, music, arts and crafts, sports, playing board games. Flexible hours weekends and weekday afternoons
To date, we have had volunteers lead youth in drama/improv, yoga, visual arts and physical fitness. These volunteer contributions have been sincerely appreciated by the youth in residential treatment. In their words:
‘Yoga gave me a way to relieve my stress at the end of the day.’
‘Drama/improv was helpful because it kept us busy and it helped me achieve one of my goals which was to interact with others.’
‘Doing visual arts helped me get my mind off my worries for a while. It also helped me tap back into my creative side.’
