Become a Volunteer

If you are interested to become a volunteer at the Immigrant Youth Centre, please follow the steps below to complete your volunteer onboarding process:

 

Step 1Please register on the CICS volunteering online registration form using https://cicscanada.com/en/registration/Volunteers/

Step 2Once the online registration form has been completed, you will be contacted through email to attend a one-time volunteer orientation & training (held every 2nd Friday of the month in the afternoon).

  • If you cannot make arrangements to attend the orientation, please contact our staff. We will be more than happy to make an alternative arrangement with you regarding this step of the volunteer onboarding process.

Step 3: Then, you will also need to sign consent forms before starting your volunteering role with us at the Immigrant Youth Centre. These consent forms will be either emailed to you with the volunteer orientation email or sent to you by one of our workers.

If you have any further questions or concerns about volunteering, please email our Youth Program Coordinator, Vivian at Vivian.chow@cicscanada.com

Featured Volunteering Programs

IYC Community Action Network (iCAN) represents youth voices within the IYC. They help newcomer youth integrate within the community by planning events, creating awareness of different topics such as multiculturalism. They also get youth at IYC involved by creating volunteer opportunities. The iCAN Committee provides its members with an excellent opportunity to develop leadership skills. For more information about how to join the committee, contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator at Ext. 207.

The Youth Mental Health Ambassadors (YMHA) is a youth volunteer-led group, meaning all activities and projects are organized, planned and delivered by the participants of the group. We meet twice a month (bi-weekly) on Thursdays (4:30 pm - 6:00 pm) for group meetings to discuss various topics related to mental health and social justice as well as collaborate on community engagement projects, such as designing social media posts on relevant topics.
