Volunteering at Boost CYAC

Boost CYAC volunteers are an outstanding group of people. They are groups and individuals representing our community and they share in a common need to reach out and help others. Volunteers of all ages play an integral role in our fundraising, awareness and service activities. Our volunteers contribute their unique skills, experience and compassion to help us. We recruit volunteers with the skills, experience, qualifications and interest to meet our needs and offer rewarding opportunities to make a difference.

How You Can Help

Boost CYAC has volunteer opportunities throughout the year, primarily related to fundraising events and awareness campaigns. Occasionally we will request volunteers for administrative or service related tasks.

What is the commitment?

You may wish to volunteer as often as you like. We are flexible and will work with you to accommodate your schedule.

What are the requirements?

Given the number of volunteer applications Boost CYAC receives, we are unable to meet with each applicant in person. The selection of volunteers differs depending on the volunteer opportunity available. For a fundraising event or awareness campaign, a telephone interview may be conducted prior to the event. If the volunteer role is fairly involved and requires training, we may host a training session at our office prior to the event. Boost CYAC offers few volunteer opportunities that allow contact with our clients. If one does arise, we require a current police check and in-person interview(s) be completed prior to the volunteer opportunity. Information related to Toronto Police Service reference checks is available at http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/prcp/
