Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Canadian Mental Health Association, Haliburton, Kawartha Pine Ridge. We have a number of opportunities that may be available from time to time including our Interlink Choir, Kids on the Block and Bingo – see below. We also need volunteers from time to time for community events. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on these opportunities. We also invite applications to our Lived Expertise Advisory Panel for individuals and their families who have had personal experience with mental illness. Please follow the instructions provided for application.
If you are a student looking for placement as part of your school curriculum, please see our Students | CMHA – Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge page. We have limited opportunities for students seeking to complete their 100 hours of volunteer work as most of our volunteer opportunities are intended for adults, due to the vulnerable nature of many of our clients. However, we do provide opportunities for students from time to time at various events, which may help you complete a portion of your hours.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you.
Interlink Choir Volunteers
Interlink is an intergenerational program which brings together children and volunteers through celebration of words and music.
The exchange of pen pal letters and formation of an intergenerational choir help to build warm and meaningful relationships that are so essential for mental wellness.
