With YSM, there are volunteer opportunities for every talent and timetable. If you’d like to help, we'd like to hear from you!

Dear Volunteers,

It continues to be a strange and uncertain time locally and globally. We, your friends at YSM, truly hope that you and yours are keeping well and safe. 

At the very least this global experience demonstrates our common vulnerability and reminds us, as a human race, that we are one.

We wanted you to know that we won’t provide you with a date on when we think we’ll be back to our “normal” functioning. Instead we are going to say, volunteer shifts are suspended until further notice.* As always, please contact YSM’s Volunteer Resources team if you have any questions related to volunteering with YSM: volunteer@ysm.ca

To keep up-to-date on what YSM is doing today, please keep checking our website and our social media. And feel free check out this exciting YSM video on blog TO from March 29. Yes, we are still busy impacting poverty at YSM!

Our hope and prayer is that soon we’ll be back to business as usual, and back in touch with you all, rallying you to help us as you have, or desire to, so generously already. Please stay hopeful and stay tuned to that time.

Our YSM family is thinking of you at this time and missing your presence at YSM!

Warmly, Yonge Street Mission’s Volunteer Resources Team 

*Please note: we are still recruiting for student placements, for the spring/summer term, and for some particular volunteer positions. 

Volunteers play a vital role helping-out in a variety of ways from tutoring children and serving meals to mentoring young adults or 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. Consider joining our team of over 3000 committed volunteers by viewing our current open volunteer opportunities listed below and we’ll be in touch in hopes that in the not-too-distant future we will once again be back working more regularly.
