Volunteer Services



If you are looking for the right volunteers for your organization, we can assist you with your search. You can post volunteer opportunities in our York Info Community Information & Volunteer Database. You can also send your volunteer opportunities by email or fax. The York Info Community Information & Volunteer Database is available on-line for community members throughout York Region and gives them the opportunity to post volunteer opportunities on-line. Potential volunteer application forms submitted through the database are forwarded to your organization as an e-mail.


We also provide a personal volunteer matching service for community members who would like to become a volunteer. If an applicant’s interests, goals, skill set and time availability matches a volunteer posting, we will refer them to your organization.
