Program focus: Communication Skills, Community Service/Volunteer Hours, LGBT, Skill Development, Socializing

The Volunteer Readiness Program serves youth looking to complete community service hours towards high school graduation or probation requirements. The youth is not required to have prior volunteer or work experiences to participate in this program. The volunteers participate in a variety of activities including community events and packing food hampers for those experiencing food insecurity among other things.

The youth are assured to gain community service hours and employability skills including communication and leadership skills through hands on experiences with the support of Youth Outreach Workers. They will also have opportunities to develop their resume and access other programs and services based on their individual needs.

Snacks and TTC tickets are provided for the youth volunteers.
