Due to limited capacity and the specific needs of our community, we are currently unable to accomodate in-person volunteering at our Drop-in but do encourage you to consider joining a Board Committee or keep in touch for updates as we continue to navigate changes with COVID-19.
Join a Board Committee!
We are seeking volunteers for PARC Board Committees which cover five areas; Advocacy, Finance, Governance, Human Resources, and Fundraising/Development. These are working committees that typically meet monthly to support and advance our work.
Volunteering as a committee member is a great way to become familiar with the culture, priorities, ways of working and people at PARC. It is also a requirement prior to joining the PARC Board of Directors, should that be of interest.
Each committee has a workplan and seek specific skills for their area of focus. A short description of each follows, and we encourage anyone with relevant experience, knowledge and interest to apply.
Develops, coordinates and promotes PARC activities that will raise public awareness of social justice issues in Parkdale and the City of Toronto.
