Volunteer Your Services

When you volunteer your time and efforts with YWCA Toronto, you help to transform the lives of women, girls and gender diverse people and create lasting change in your community. 

Individual Volunteer Opportunities
YWCA Toronto relies on the passion and special skills of our amazing volunteers in order to serve the over 13,000 single women, women with children, girls and gender diverse people we serve each year. Volunteers at YWCA Toronto work in partnership with staff in many different areas to achieve our mission – from program support to administrative assistance, to hands-on event opportunities. Individual placements and group opportunities are available throughout the city at our fifteen locations and may be long or short-term.

If you would like to volunteer, join our volunteer email list to be informed of individual volunteer opportunities as they arise.
