Volunteers at the Parkside Centre assist staff in supporting the mission of the Centre. By utilizing their skills, expertise and commitment we are able to achieve our organizational objectives.
Throughout the year our nearly 200 volunteers work with staff in all areas of the facility to help insure the best possible experience for our members. Volunteers are active in leading and instructing programs, preparing delicious meals in the Parkview Eatery and providing general administration and reception duties, just to name a few of the opportunities available.
We value the contribution of every volunteer as well as the diversity of skills, interests and commitments that each brings to the Centre. These people are an integral part of our team as we grow and continue to meet the needs of our members and our community.
If you would like to become a volunteer at the Parkside Centre, please contact us at (705) 673-6227 to discuss your interests. We have many available opportunities.
