Friendship Volunteers Needed
Your friendship with a local adult with a disability could help bring some social interaction and company to someone’s life. Friendship volunteers must be able to make contact via e-mail or phone once a week and visit at least once a month. Suggested ‘friendship’ activities include phone calls, spending time over a shared interest such as watching movies or sports games, chatting over a cup of coffee, visiting the local mall, and many other activities that are of mutual interest.
If you are at least 18 years of age, reliable, flexible with your time, patient with others, and a good listener, then please join our program!
To Volunteer for the Program:
- complete the application form or call your local office
- provide two references
- authorize a Criminal Reference Check
- be interviewed by March of Dimes Canada
Volunteers selected for the program will be matched with a friend in their local area.
