YOUTH SUMMER VOLUNTEER INITIATIVE

 

 

Thank you for your interest in The Darling Home for Kids and our Youth Summer Volunteer Initiative opportunity; we are excited to bring on a dedicated group of youth volunteers to augment our summer camp experience program in 2017.

The Darling Home for Kids is a respite/hospice experience for medically fragile and technology dependent children located on 77-acres of property in Milton, ON. We provide a ‘Home Away from Home’ experience for our children by providing a break for families from the hard work of being parents to special kids, in an environment where our kids can experience joy, laughter, and fun as they explore opportunities and activities unavailable to them elsewhere. Our Home includes a continuum of care from respite through to palliation and end of life care, when needed.

We are looking for youth who are interested in making a difference, who desire to receive an experience like no other, and are dedicated to making the most of their summer. You must be comfortable spending time with children who have varying needs and engaging in various activities alongside of these children. We have four volunteer positions for the summer of 2017.  If you would enjoy this opportunity and are interested in the experience, we encourage you to apply. Upon completion of the program, volunteers will receive letters of reference for their post-secondary education and volunteer/job opportunities along with a certificate of completion (including hours).

Applications are due by Friday, April 28th, 2017 via mail, email, or dropped off at the Home. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services, Erin Huber, at ehuber@darlinghomeforkids.ca or 905.878.7673 ext. 218. Download the 2017 YSVI Application Package Here.
