Please see below for current opportunities for you to help provide hope in our city!


At The Yonge Street Mission, there are volunteer opportunities for every talent and 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 and impact lives – and our volunteers do just that!


Volunteers play a vital role helping out in a variety of ways from tutoring children to serving meals to mentoring young adults to sharing 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. 


For more information, please see our most current volunteer opportunities listed below.

If you don’t see something here today that appeals to you and works with your timing, availability, skills and interests check back again soon – our opportunities are always changing!
