We have an active volunteer program and are always looking for new, enthusiastic volunteers to add to our roster! We invite you to come and learn what we can offer you and we would love to learn about your skills and interests. One goal of our volunteer program is to help our military family members integrate in the community by meeting new friends, discovering great services and programs, and developing skills while looking for employment. The MFRC can also help high school students to meet the requirement for 40 hours of Community Involvement, either with volunteering at the MFRC or connecting students with other volunteer opportunities in the community.
For more information on this program or to register as a volunteer please contact Dawn Barr, Volunteer Coordinator:
The volunteer program at the Trenton MFRC is meant to enhance the day-to-day functioning of the Centre and to support all the programs and services we offer. It is also meant to offer members of our community an opportunity to be involved in their MFRC, to share skills, ideas, and knowledge. Volunteering offers newcomers an opportunity to meet new friends and to get connected. There are also opportunities for students to volunteer and log hours toward the community involvement requirement for school.
Our volunteer opportunities are very diverse and if we don’t currently have what you want, let us know. Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome. We anticipate a need for volunteers to assist with the following activities, however, the list is subject to change and additions.
*New programs and volunteer opportunities are being developed and details will be available at a later date.
*If we don’t have an opportunity to suit you, I may be able to help you find a community volunteer opportunity to meet your need/interest.
For the many opportunities to volunteer in the greater Quinte area, go to www.viq.ca or call Volunteer & Information Quinte at 613.969.8862.
