Volunteering in child welfare: It takes a community to keep kids safe

Volunteers play a significant role in the work of child welfare in Ontario. Women and men across the province donate their time, talent, and resources to assist children and youth in a variety of capacities, including driving, mentoring, tutoring, assisting with special events, and providing administrative support. Check out our infographic below which highlights some of the key facts about Ontario’s child welfare volunteers.

In honour of National Volunteer Week 2017, and on behalf of our member agencies, we would like to say thank you to all the volunteers who support the well-being of Ontario’s children and youth.

If you are looking to get involved with the Children’s Aid Society in your community, contact them directly to see how you may be of service.
