Youth Volunteers

Are you 16-29 years old and looking to make a difference in your community?

  • complete at least two months (50+ hours) of continuous volunteer service during the summer.

A completed volunteer application must be submitted by Friday April 26 (5 p.m. EST)  to be considered for summer volunteering.

In addition to youth volunteer placements, we also offer the LEAD program during the summer months.

LEAD Volunteer Program

LEAD (Learn, Experience, Accomplish & Develop) is a summer volunteer program for youth aged 16-29 that offers a unique opportunity for personal growth and professional development in the healthcare sector.

This program combines a volunteer placement with learning opportunities geared toward youth who are interested in healthcare.

Volunteers will:

  • expand their knowledge of the health care sector
  • gain an in-depth understanding of our Health Centre
  • give back through volunteering
  • build connections for the future

This program is a great opportunity for volunteers to make a positive difference while exploring and expanding their interest in health care. Volunteers who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion.

To be eligible for the program, applicants must be:

  • between 16-29 years of age
  • enrolled in school (secondary or post-secondary)
  • available to complete the program requirements during the summer

Important Dates
