Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers are an essential part of the work that happens at The Lighthouse.  Many of our programs would not happen without the dedication and skills of our volunteers.  We work together to build community and offer respect and hospitality.

Volunteering at The Lighthouse gives you the opportunity to:

  • meet new people and build community connections
  • improve language and communication skills
  • contribute to your community
  • develop new skills

Volunteering in Programs

Volunteering is a wonderful means of giving back to your community, and The Lighthouse relies on its volunteers in effectively carrying out its activities.
For more information about volunteering in programs at The Lighthouse, please contact Neighbourhood Program staff 416-535-6262 ext 226 or  [email protected].


Volunteering in Fundraising

Every year, The Lighthouse has a telephone campaign (in May) and a fundraising dinner and silent auction (in November).  Other events are often planned throughout the year.  The Lighthouse relies on volunteers to carry out these endeavours.  If you wish to participate in these fundraising activities, please contact The Lighthouse’s Executive Director, Rob Datema by email at [email protected]

Joining a committee of The Lighthouse

For those who have volunteered with The Lighthouse or an organization that works in partnership with The Lighthouse, we welcome your ideas in areas of Communications and Technology, Fundraising, Human Resources, Social Work, Social Service Work, Psychotherapy, Sociology and Community Services.  If you are interested in becoming involved in this manner, please contact The Lighthouse’s Executive Director, Rob Datema at [email protected].
