Many of our communities have large outdoor garden spaces that need tending. This job would entail regularly weeding and general maintenance of the garden beds. You would need to have at least an intermediate level of gardening "know how" as this will be mostly independent work.
Residents who live with us have various interests. We love it when volunteers share their hobbies and passions with us.
Examples of this could be:
A volunteer who loves to play guitar and sing has invited Residents to join him in a sing along program.
A volunteer that is a university student has brought in science experiments to engage our Residents.
We have volunteers fluent in other languages that run English as a Second Language programs for Residents.
We would love to hear about your passion and how we might bring it to our Residents. If you have an idea, tell us about it in your application.
