Become a Volunteer
Give the gift of time. Volunteer at the Massey Centre. Our moms and babies benefit from the participation of volunteers across our programs. Each year, Massey Centre volunteers contribute more than 3,000 hours to support our programs alongside our staff.
Current volunteer positions include:
Kitchen Volunteers – Assist the Cook with a variety of tasks, including unpacking groceries, loading/unloading the dishwasher, and preparing/serving meals.
Office Volunteers – Assist with a variety of administrative tasks, including reception, data entry, filing, and mailings.
Parent Relief Volunteers – provide basic child care while a child’s young mother does her chores or takes a much-needed break.
Ontario government legislation requires that all employees and volunteers of the Massey Centre have a Police Reference Check and Vulnerable Sector Screening. If you have had this check and screening done in the last six months, please submit the original document to the Volunteer Coordinator.
If you have not had this check and screening done within the last six months, the appropriate forms will be provided in your volunteer application package. As a potential volunteer, you are responsible for the cost of the Police Reference Check; Massey Centre will reimburse you after you volunteer for 30 hours.
For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-425-6348 x 239.
What do the volunteers say?
“Volunteering at the Massey Centre has brought new meaning to my life. My executive job in the corporate world is very stressful and being able to hold a baby for two hours a week reminds me what is really important.”
“I love spending time with S. and her baby. When I came to the Massey Centre I was only thinking about what I could offer to the young women’s lives. I now realize that my involvement with them has given me so much more! They are truly remarkable young women.”
"Massey Centre not only gave me the ability to care for my child, but the motivation to get what I wanted for my life - to have my daughter with me and to live independently."
