The GTHS Animal Hospital contains an Operating Room, Treatment Room, Examination Room, Pharmacy, X-Ray Room and a Hospital Intake / Recovery Area, and provides spay/neuter surgeries for over 1500 homeless pets annually. Having an onsite hospital ensures animals receive timely, thorough and comprehensive care, saves dozens of daily phone calls, reduces trips back and forth to veterinary clinics, dramatically decreases the stress on the GTHS animals, and leads to the additional benefit of earlier adoption availability; so these animals find their forever home quickly. 
 
The Hospital Discharge Volunteer is responsible for discharging animals to the public after their Hospital appointment / surgery, create kennel tags and preparing for the next day's appointments and overseeing the cleanliness of the small Hospital Intake Room.

Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario

The facilitator will:

  • Support the goals of PSSO in local communities with an emphasis on providing
    information and fellowship for people living with Parkinson’s and their families.
  • Attend ongoing training/education and Community of Practice meetings provided
    by PSSO to increase their knowledge about Parkinson’s disease and to enhance
    their skills as a facilitator.
  • Ensure all public notices for the group contain the group information, PSSO logo,
    and a reference to the group being a program of PSSO.
  • Provide PSSO with updated group lists, including names, addresses, telephone
    numbers, and email addresses regularly.
  • Provide an attendance record (First & Last Name of each participant) to PSSO
    immediately following each group session. This will be submitted using the
    volunteer portal “My Impact Page.”
  • Document all hours of volunteering using the volunteer portal “My Impact Page,”
    which should include all time spent each month planning as well as group
    facilitation.
  • Notify PSSO of any important information immediately as it pertains to the overall
    group or specific client participants (questions, resources, health changes, death in
    the family, etc.).

The facilitator works with the group to:

  • Act in accordance with the Volunteer Code of Conduct (see page 12)
  • Define the role and emphasize that the facilitator is not an expert in all things.
  • Conduct group meetings in a caring, respectful, and compassionate manner.
  • Promote the value of empowerment, encouraging individuals to be involved in
    making decisions about their own care.
  • Establish, with input from group participants, a list of ground rules and goals for the
    group and review the list with the group on a regular basis.

  • Welcome and introduce new participants to the group, explain group guidelines such as confidentiality and help them connect with other group participants.

Group Interaction & Communication
The facilitator will:

  • Ensure group participants are educated about and adhere to the confidentiality
    policy.
  • Moderate the discussions in the group to ensure that all participants have an equal
    opportunity to share if they wish. This may require the facilitator to enhance their
    skills to ensure that participants that are talkative do not monopolize the
    discussion. Gently redirect attention to less vocal participants.
  • Encourage a balance in discussions by encouraging the group to consider
    constructive solutions when negative issues are being addressed. Although there
    will be times when participants need to freely express and share their feelings, even
    if their tone seems negative.
  • Remind the group that the symptoms, treatment, and progression of Parkinson’s
    are unique to each person, so others’ experiences may be different from one’s own.
  • Strive to present information and encourage discussion that is honest while at the
    same time promotes a feeling of optimism.
  • Remind participants to adopt a “consumers beware” approach to any information
    shared in the group and do their own research or speak with a medical professional
    before actin

Quest Art School + Gallery
Midland

Exhibition / Event set up: There’s a lot to learn about hanging an exhibition and the curatorial practices in a professional gallery, which you could learn by assisting our director and the team as they carefully change exhibitions. These happen all year round so get in touch if you’d like to have valuable insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes! You can also help set-up displays for one of our varied fundraisers, which also involves teamwork and an attention to detail. You might also be asked to lift or carry items, depending on the event.

Reception and Greeting: An integral part of events at Quest is the welcoming face our visitors see when they first arrive. If you feel you are a friendly, welcoming person then you could assist us by greeting visitors, taking down their information or assisting with ticketing. This role requires someone well-presented and able to multi-task.

Office / Administrative Support: There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to organize exhibitions and fundraisers! We are always seeking volunteers to help in the offices at Quest. If you are adept at multi-tasking, are comfortable making phone calls and have an eye for detail then this may be the perfect role!

Workshop / Educational Support: There are many different workshops held at Quest Art School + Gallery, and off-site, to a wide variety of students. We offer classes to children, youth and adults of all skill levels. If you are curious, patient and eager to lend a hand, then you might be perfect assisting one of our instructors as they lead a workshop.

Off-Site Events: Quest Art, as a charitable organization, is often invited to a wide range of events in the Midland-Penetang’, and sometimes wider, region. These vary by season and year, so depending on where you can get to, you could assist at one of these events.

Kids in our community need you! Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions is looking for Foster Parents! 
 
Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions is a Child Welfare (Simcoe & Muskoka) and Children’s Mental Health (Muskoka only) agency licensed by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. We support children, youth, families and communities with multiple services including fostering for children and youth up to 18 years old.  
 
Our agency has an urgent need for foster parents across Simcoe and Muskoka. We are looking for diverse caregivers who understand children’s needs. Children & Youth lose so much when they have to leave their community. Foster caregivers provide a safe home and a temporary solution for children and youth, while their families make the changes needed for them to come back home. 
 
Would you consider opening your home and heart to providing care to youth and children? Fostering can be challenging, but it’s a very rewarding career. You don’t have to be perfect to make a difference in the life of a child. Fostering can be flexible and fit in with your lifestyle! 
 
We encourage all applicants to apply regardless of sex, gender, marital status, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, orientation or religion.  
 
Our application process and training program are very detailed, and may seem daunting, but please don't let that stop you from choosing a career in fostering. We find that all successful foster parents believe that the rewards of fostering, including building strong, loving relationships that last a lifetime, far outweigh the challenges involved. 
 
We look forward to hearing from you! Please share with anyone you think might be interested!

    Mentoring is a method of passing on lived experiences to support another caregiver in an empowering and meaningful way. Anyone who has been a caregiver will know that the caregiving role presents many challenges. These challenges will be different for every caregiver and from time to time support will be needed. A Peer Mentor has a wealth of experience and knowledge which can help another caregiver with the challenges of their caregiving situation. Caregivers share a common identity and can create a bond through sharing their experiences. You can easily connect by phone or by online/virtual discussion with your Caregiver Participant without leaving your home. An OCO trained peer mentor will:
  • ‘Just be there’/Listen
  • Provide encouragement, support and acceptance
  • Acknowledge a caregiver’s strengths
  • Share lived experience and give real life examples
  • Discuss a caregiver’s wellbeing
  • Provide support with developing coping strategies
  • Provide relevant information
  • Provide support to set goals the caregiver identifies
  • Celebrate any goals the caregiver achieves

    Animal Caregiver   Bruce County  Grey County 
    Grey Bruce Animal Shelter
    457437 Concession 8 S Owen Sound, ON N4K 5N8
    We are always looking for volunteers to help out around the kennels. We are open every morning 7 days a week from 8AM - noon. We have a shift of volunteers in every morning to look after the cats and dogs: cleaning, feeding, grooming, walking, laundry, vet runs, administering medications and of course putting dogs out in outdoor runs and walking them. We walk the dogs every day, unless the weather is really, really bad (i.e. too cold or just plain dangerous). We also have evening dog walkers who are paired up for safety reasons (don't want people out at the shelter alone) and they walk dogs or put them out for a stretch in outdoor pens, administer any necessary evening medications and/or extra feeds to cats or dogs and clean up any kennels that have messes.  
     
    We do ask volunteers to try and commit to a period of time on a regular basis (e.g. a particular morning/evening every week or every other week) as it makes it easier for scheduling and also keeps the volunteer familiar to the animals they are caring for. With the dogs, this makes a big difference. We have some dogs that are with us for a while before finding a forever home so we try to have them handled by people they know as much as possible.

    Bench Warmers are friendly people who allow others to engage in conversation in either parks or malls. Studies show that loneliness has the same dire consequences on physical health as smoking a pack a day! Social connection is so needed (and often lost in the shuffle of busyness and technology) and MatureMinds Friendship Bench offers an opportunity for interaction and social engagement. The implementation is simple but the results are deep and  meaningful. Volunteers will receive training in active listening, self care, mental health awareness, and ageism. After successfully completing the training, volunteers become Bench Warmers. They sit on a bench either at a park or in a mall with a sign that says "If you want to talk, I want to listen." Be part of the cure for the loneliness epidemic! Become a Bench Warmer.

    • Define the role and emphasize that the facilitator is not an expert in all things.
    • Conduct group meetings in a caring, respectful, and compassionate manner.

    • Encourage a balance in discussions by encouraging the group to consider
      constructive solutions when negative issues are being addressed. Although there
      will be times when participants need to freely express and share their feelings, even
      if their tone seems negative.

      same time promotes a feeling of optimism.

    Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario

    The facilitator will:

    • Support the goals of PSSO in local communities with an emphasis on providing
      information and fellowship for people living with Parkinson’s and their families.
    • Attend ongoing training/education and Community of Practice meetings provided
      by PSSO to increase their knowledge about Parkinson’s disease and to enhance
      their skills as a facilitator.
    • Ensure all public notices for the group contain the group information, PSSO logo,
      and a reference to the group being a program of PSSO.
    • Provide PSSO with updated group lists, including names, addresses, telephone
      numbers, and email addresses regularly.
    • Provide an attendance record (First & Last Name of each participant) to PSSO
      immediately following each group session. This will be submitted using the
      volunteer portal “My Impact Page.”
    • Document all hours of volunteering using the volunteer portal “My Impact Page,”
      which should include all time spent each month planning as well as group
      facilitation.
    • Notify PSSO of any important information immediately as it pertains to the overall
      group or specific client participants (questions, resources, health changes, death in
      the family, etc.)

    The facilitator works with the group to:

    • Act in accordance with the Volunteer Code of Conduct (see page 12)
    • Define the role and emphasize that the facilitator is not an expert in all things.
    • Conduct group meetings in a caring, respectful, and compassionate manner.
    • Promote the value of empowerment, encouraging individuals to be involved in
      making decisions about their own care.
    • Establish, with input from group participants, a list of ground rules and goals for the
      group and review the list with the group on a regular basis.
    • Foster an opportunity for people to interact with others dealing with similar health
      concerns and facilitate the sharing of their experience living with Parkinson’s.

    • Encourage group members to participate in PSSO programs, education events, and
      fundraising events.
    • Invite group participants to connect with PSSO staff and programs as necessary.
    • Welcome and introduce new participants to the group, explain group guidelines
      such as confidentiality and help them connect with other group participants.

    Group Interaction & Communication
    The facilitator will: 

    • Ensure group participants are educated about and adhere to the confidentiality
      policy.
    • Moderate the discussions in the group to ensure that all participants have an equal
      opportunity to share if they wish. This may require the facilitator to enhance their
      skills to ensure that participants that are talkative do not monopolize the
      discussion. Gently redirect attention to less vocal participants.
    • Encourage a balance in discussions by encouraging the group to consider
      constructive solutions when negative issues are being addressed. Although there
      will be times when participants need to freely express and share their feelings, even
      if their tone seems negative.
    • Remind the group that the symptoms, treatment, and progression of Parkinson’s
      are unique to each person, so others’ experiences may be different from one’s own.
    • Strive to present information and encourage discussion that is honest while at the
      same time promotes a feeling of optimism.
    • Remind participants to adopt a “consumers beware” approach to any information
      shared in the group and do their own research or speak with a medical professional
      before acting.
