Community Helper Program
The Community Helper Program provides Ontario Works participants with volunteer opportunities.
As a volunteer, you can expect:
- New learning opportunities
- Better health and social connections
- Increased self-confidence
- A sense of independence
- Building skills and competencies
With a strong resume and new skills, you’ll find it easier to strut your stuff to prospective employers or take on more challenging volunteer positions in the community. That’s the thing about volunteering. You get as much out of it as you put into it! And often, you get a whole lot more. So roll up your sleeves and get involved.
