Volunteer Roles

There are so many ways to help. If you have the urge to reach out, we may have a volunteer role that’s just right for you.


Volunteer drivers play an extremely valuable role in the lives of children and youth in care. Drivers become the familiar and friendly faces children and youth can depend on—those who will listen to their stories and bring a smile to their faces at what can be a very confusing time in their lives.

Food For Life

This is one of the most vital roles we have at the Halton Children’s Aid Society. Once a week, the Food for Life organization provides food we then distribute to families associated with our organization and identified as being a family in need.

Virtual Tutor

Volunteers are required to ‘virtually’ tutor children and youth in care who are in need of extra help in achieving their full academic potential in all subjects, especially math, English, science and French. The volunteer will assist a child or youth to experience success in learning through a supportive one-to-one relationship using various platforms such as FaceTime, Google Hangouts, etc. The children and youth requiring assistance can range from ages 6 to 18 and all academic levels. Scheduling can be arranged directly with the caregiver and tutor at your mutual convenience. READ MORE
