Volunteer

We could not operate nor reach our goals without the generous help of our volunteers. Some benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Sharing and making a difference in someone's life
  • Gaining knowledge and building your skill set
  • Volunteer recognition events and training opportunities
  • Making connections and learning about other cultures

We have a number of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Please check the “availability” in each role description to learn more about the demand for each role. Currently, we are accepting applications for the following positions:

 

Some of our positions are seasonal, or in lower demand throughout the year. You may still apply for these roles, however your application will go on hold, and we will contact you if a suitable opportunity arises:

Check back periodically as our volunteer needs change throughout the year and we could be recruiting for the other positions in the near future.

Application Process

STEP 1: Submit Your Application

Explore our volunteer roles above to see what fits you. Please read the role descriptions before applying for a position to confirm that the role suits your interests and availability. Complete and submit the volunteer application package. The application can be completed online below.

STEP 2: Submit Your References

All volunteers are required to provide two references completed by individuals who know you well and are not family. The reference should send their completed form to volunteer@nccpeterborough.ca, mail it to NCC or drop it off at the front desk.

STEP 3: Informal Interview

Once your application and two references have been reviewed, we will determine if there is a possible opportunity. If there is, the Volunteer Administrator will connect with you to schedule a volunteer interview within a couple of weeks. If there are no suitable opportunities, we will contact you and keep your application on hand in case an opportunity arises in the future.

STEP 4: Submit Your Police Check & Final Steps

If you are offered a volunteer role during the interview, you will be required to submit a police check with vulnerable sector screening. If you have one already, which was completed within the last year and is the original copy, please bring this to your interview. Otherwise, a volunteer letter will be issued to you at your interview to take to the police station.

STEP 5: Wait to Hear from Us

Many of our roles do not start immediately. NCC likes to ensure a good match between your skill-set and our organization’s needs. Depending on your role, it may take time for us to match you. Thank you for being patient and waiting for the right fit.
