Volunteering as a youth has many practical benefits. During volunteer opportunities, people are afforded the chance to network, gain vital experience, and learn new things while also helping the community. Volunteers have also been shown to have increased motivation and a sense of achievement.
OSCA’s Summer Camps are a great opportunity for youth to contribute to the community while learning skills they can apply in a variety of environments. OSCA’s volunteers receive experience in children’s programming, group dynamics and group control, safety, team building, leadership, ages and stages, and much more. Our experienced staff also provide them with feedback and learning opportunities throughout their time in camps. High school students can use volunteer hours toward the Ontario High School Community Service Program.
We will be hosting a Volunteer Information Session. It will be held at the Firehall (260 Sunnyside Ave.) from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. During this information session, we discuss different topics such as the benefits of volunteering, a typical camp day, expectations and roles, and communication.
This session is a great way to meet other volunteers and some of the staff that volunteers will work with over the summer. Volunteers can also pick-up their requirement packages during this time or drop them off if they’ve already picked them up.
