We welcome volunteers to become a part of our community helping to make a difference in the lives of our residents through our wide range of opportunities we offer to you and our resident’s.  Discover the joy and fulfillment of volunteering at Trinity Village.

 

Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for individuals whose personal values complement those of Trinity Village who are positive, caring, sensitive, energetic, and people focused.

Screening

Potential volunteers will be contacted following the completion of the online Volunteer Application Form. You may also contact the volunteer coordinator to find out how you can become involved. Once the form has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted for an interview. At the interview, services are discussed along with the skills and interests of the potential volunteer.

 

We greatly appreciate your interest in volunteering at Trinity Village, however, there are times at which our capacity to accommodate volunteers is at a maximum, and we may not be able to provide you with the volunteer experience that you’re looking for.  We will keep your application on file, and may contact you if a new position or vacant position becomes available.

 

Commitment

Volunteers must be a minimum of 14 years of age and be committed to volunteering a minimum of four months. All volunteers must attend Trinity Village orientation as part of their training.

 

Expectations of Volunteers

When you are accepted as a volunteer, at Trinity Village you must provide the name, address and phone number of two references. The two references will be contacted by phone or email and will be sent a form to complete and return.  Please note: an interview does not guarantee a volunteer position.

 

A health review, which includes a two part TB skin test will be required depending on volunteer position and travel history prior to starting your specific volunteer role. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to contact their family physician or Public Health to make arrangements to have this completed. This can take several weeks.

 

All volunteers must provide a current Vulnerable Criminal Reference Check (Police Check) at the general orientation. Your volunteer service will not commence until Criminal Reference Check have been completed.
