Volunteer & Brokered Worker Opportunities
Adult Day Service
Our volunteers are involved in a wide range of activities. For instance light kitchen duties, visiting with clients, helping out with the various activities, and sharing your talents and interests. As a volunteer, you can decide whether you would prefer to help in the mornings or afternoons and how often you are able to help out.
Monthly luncheons are held in many communities throughout Leeds & Grenville. Clients and volunteers get to enjoy a nutritious meal, social interaction and guest speakers or entertainment. Use your talents to assist individuals who otherwise don’t have an opportunity to enjoy a meal in the company of others. Depending on the Diners’ Club location, volunteer opportunities include: transporting clients to and from the venue (for those in need), event set up, shopping, food preparation, serving, and clean-up.
