Volunteers are the heart of Empower Simcoe and play a vital role ensuring we support people of all ages and abilities to realize their full potential and to enhance their quality of life. Volunteers are a valued part of our team and play a significant role in all areas of our agency, developing lasting relationships with people and helping to improve their overall sense of well-being. Our volunteers help empower people to lead a meaningful and inclusive life.
How Do I Become a Volunteer?
All of our volunteers are required to submit an application form and references, and provide a current Criminal Reference Check. Once you have been approved, we’ll give you an opportunity to meet the person (or people) you’ll be spending time with. Our staff will provide you with a complete orientation and be there to support you as you become a part of our team.
We’re always looking for hard-working, compassionate individuals. Please consider sharing your skills and energy with us today. Complete the online Volunteer Application below. Also below, you can find more information on volunteer opportunities available at Empower Simcoe, or please contact our Marketing and Communications Manager by email or by phone at (705) 726-9082 ext. 5280.
