VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

1) Boys & Girls Club of London

Throughout June and into the summer, the Boys & Girls Club and the Digital Creative Arts Centre will be creating and sharing digital content such as activities, music, and other entertainment. To that end, we are looking for volunteers to create some of this content.

We are looking for volunteers who have a skill they'd be willing to share via video (things like music, science experiments, art, magic tricks, anything like that). This content can be geared towards children, youth, or seniors. Ideally, we would like volunteers to be able to create these videos at home, but there may be some limited opportunities to come into the Club and film here, if necessary (and if it can be done safely).

We are also in need of volunteers who might be able to help behind the scenes for our virtual content, with things like video editing or production.

For more information contact:
Mario Circelli, the Manager of Youth Programs & DCAC here at the BGCL. He can be reached at mcircelli@bgclondon.ca or at 519-434-9115 ext. 260.

 

2) Triple T is looking for peer tutors to volunteer for this upcoming September.  Click HERE for information.
