VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES IN NDG

The NDG Community Council benefits tremendously from the contributions of all our committed volunteers to help us achieve our goals.
We'd be thrilled if you would like to share some of your time and your skills with us.

Volunteering in NDG

Volunteers help us with tasks such as organizing events, translation, and community outreach, and there are always new and interesting ways of getting involved too. If you think you would like to contribute some of your time to the community, fill out the application form below, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. And, if we haven't got an opening for you right away, we can also help refer you to a range of volunteer opportunities with other community organizations in NDG that may match your skills and interests. We look forward to hearing from you!

VOLUNTEERING WITH NDG COMMUNITY COUNCIL

The Council's daily activities are only possible thanks to the hundreds of volunteers working with the team. Whether it is in the office, online, or outside during outreach and events such as Lunar New Year or Tax clinics, they are at the root of everything we do. Naming all of those who supported us through the year would be too long here, but we do want to recognize that all of those residents are a little piece of the big puzzle that the Council is continuously working on.

EVENT SUPPORT

Volunteers help with decoration, food distribution, traditional art craft and traditional performances, etc.

PROJECTS & SERVICES

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Council's outreach team visited the residents of NDG's five senior HLM housing projects. We gathered their needs by completing an assessment survey.
Many seniors are less able to communicate with the community because they do not know how to use technology. The pandemic and periods of isolation have highlighted this lack.
The NDG Community Council and the Eva Marsden Center for Social Justice and Aging have developed a plan to provide support to seniors: Tech-Savvy. In one-on-one meetings, eligible seniors now have the opportunity to learn the basics to regain their independence and reconnect with social life.

TESTIMONIALS & EXPERIENCE

Volunteer receptionist

“It is easy to share my impressions of the NDG Community Council after eight and a half years of work as a volunteer here. What stands out first is the quality of the interpersonal relationships both among the Council staff themselves and with the public. The Council responds to the needs of clients in a remarkable way. Highlights of this response include housing, community resources, the tax clinic, etc. It is important to also thank the other community organisations of NDG for the cooperation they give to both the Council and the general public. It seems to me that since the start of my volunteering I have acquired the knowledge and ability to manage the multiple requests that we receive. Thank you, NDG Community Council”

Event Support

I did volunteering and organized un Event in NDG  "The Flavors of World" at 2012. It helped me to improve my English language skills and find a job later. Volunteering gave me opportunities to connect with the community and grow my personal network, find a job,  start speaking English and more.
