Through the support of our volunteers, Neighbourhood Link enhances the provision of its services and provides a professional training ground for clients to develop and hone their employment skills. Volunteers are recruited to work with clients in our programs and initiatives for seniors, youth, newcomers, employment, housing, community and resident engagement.
At Neighbourhood Link Support Services we have a multitude of volunteer placements available, whether you have an hour or two now and then, or want a regularly scheduled position. Volunteers gain valuable experience and personal satisfaction while helping others. If you want to make a difference in your community, meet new people and become a part of a dynamic team, consider investing your time at Neighbourhood Link Support Services.
The work or our staff team is magnified by the work of over 800 volunteers touching the lives of more than 20,000 people every year.

- supporting community and fundraising events
- working with seniors
- working with children in after-school programs, homework clubs or arts and crafts programs
