Want to get involved at CRWC and make a difference?

There are many ways you can help support Christie Refugee Welcome Centre by way of volunteering.

Kitchen Volunteers

In the kitchen we need volunteers to help with prepping & serving meals, and helping with clean-up. There is a two-person kitchen staff team and they need assistance & support with all non-cooking kitchen duties.

Monday, Tuesday, Fridays  •  9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This volunteer placement would take place during any of the time slots above. You are welcome to commit to between 1-2 shifts (on a weekly basis).

This placement needs a volunteer who can regularly commit to be present on a weekly basis. The volunteer placement would require a minimum 4 month commitment with the opportunity to continue if it works out well for both you and the Centre.

If you are interested or have questions, please email volunteer@christiestreetrc.com.

Before You Volunteer

The Centre requires all volunteers have an up-to-date police check from Toronto Police Services. If you don’t currently have a Vulnerable Sector Check from Toronto Police Services, we will have you fill out a police check application form prior to beginning your volunteer placement. The usual wait time for a returned police check is 4-6 weeks. The cost is $20 to the volunteer and we can provide you the form and send it in for you.
