Volunteers are truly the heart of our program. Without volunteers, the HCMP would not be possible. The more volunteers we have, the greater the number of students we can reach.
Volunteers directly impact a child's life. They act as positive role models for the kids they teach. You can put your piano (or other instrument) skills to good use, gain valuable teaching experience, and share your love of music by volunteering with us.
Volunteers teach piano to up to four students, for a total of one to one and a half hours per week.
Volunteers teach at elementary schools, the majority of which are located within the inner city.
Volunteers choose their teaching time. Lessons typically start in September and end in April
Can't play piano? But, still want to be involved and love working with kids?
Modelled after our successful piano program, the Guitar Program began as a pilot project in January 2012. The Guitar Program has continued to grow in the past few years and has become a great part of the HCMP. For the 2016-17 school year, the Guitar Program will be operating at Norwood, Dovercourt and John A. McDougall Schools.
Since 1963, Norwood Child & Family Resource Centre (NCFRC) has been supporting children and families within the Norwood and surrounding communities. The Centre acts as a hub and provides a place where families can feel a sense of belonging and connectedness to other families. For more information about NCFRC, visit http://www.norwoodcentre.com/.
"This place is for youth. If you dream it, we'll help you get there."
The OSYS was established in 1998 to provide a secure place for youth around Whyte Avenue to gather, to be safe, to grow, and to meet others. Through collaborative partnerships with organizations such as the HCPP, the OSYS strives to create a supportive environment for youth between the ages of 14-24 to grow and develop.
For more information about OSYS, please visit the OSYS website.
The volunteer orientation has been set to take place on Monday Jan. 22nd, 2018 @ 5pm. This is a mandatory meeting for all volunteers.
