Volunteer


CASLM volunteers are special people who offer their time, energy, and skills in many different ways to contribute to our mandate and the children, youth and families we serve. They include students, working people and retirees. 
They come from diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, and religious groups. We strive to match volunteer assignments to the skills, interests and available time of each volunteer. 

PLEASE NOTE: We are accepting volunteer applications only for Friendly Visitors (in person) and Homework Helpers (virtual primarily, some in person) at this time. As of Oct. 2021 we require that all in person volunteers provide verification of dose two Covid-19 vaccination during the pandemic. 

Please read role descriptions below. If you would like to proceed with an application you can find it here.  All completed applications can be sent to: info@caslondon.on.ca

- Friendly Visitors: Spend individual time with a child or family to share mutual interests and provide companionship.

- Homework Helpers: Help children with difficulties in various school subject areas in a one-to-one setting where extra attention may be required.

We work cooperatively to match volunteer needs and interests with the needs of our children, youth and families. CASLM volunteers:

  • are considered valuable members of CASLM and experience volunteering as members of a diverse team.
  • have opportunities which promote satisfaction from helping children in need and giving something back to the community.
  • have their skills matched with available volunteer opportunities.
  • increase skills and experience through a variety of volunteer placements.
  • receive a clear description of the expectations and the needs of CASLM, particularly in relation to assignments.
  • are connected with Supervisors and workers for the necessary contact, support and supervision to enable them to work effectively as part of the team.
  • attend ongoing training in order to improve your knowledge and skills. Volunteers will be provided with an orientation package. 
  • are provided with a letter of reference from CASLM that may assist in achieving various education or employment goals.
