Give your time. Change lives.

We love our volunteers! Last year, over 130 volunteers donated their time and skills to support the Club and Foundation. Whether mentoring, helping with homework, lending a hand with renovations, prepping meals, or running Club activities, our volunteers are an essential resource.

We offer many different volunteer opportunities for those 14+ years of age. You can volunteer in after school, full day, camps, sports and at special events to name a few. The Warehouse Youth Centre is looking for volunteers 19+ years of age who connect well with youth and would like to get involved in their after school programs.

Being a volunteer at the Club

"I have been asked to provide my perspective of being a volunteer, where do I start- giving back, being a Day Oner from the 60's, wanting to carry on Ron Kennedy's dream (the Clubs founder), looking back at what he started and where the Club is now, Kids laughing, running, kids able to eat when they are hungry, dedicated staff teaching kids the rights and wrongs of life, knowing that we do not turn anyone away, volunteers that really care,  having a safe place to go, kids have that sense of belonging, A Great Place to Be!" H. David Blackburn, Club President September 2018
