At The Yonge Street Mission, there are volunteer opportunities for every talent and every timetable. If you’d like to help, we’d like to hear from you! What links our more than 3,400 volunteers together is a desire to improve lives. Volunteers play a vital role helping out in a variety of ways from serving meals to mentoring young adults or donating professional health care services. Your time commitment can vary from an occasional, as-needed opportunity to a regularly scheduled commitment with us helping in significant and lasting ways.
