Sun Youth Is Looking for Volunteers

Volunteers of all ages contribute to Sun Youth in many ways. From elementary school students to retired seniors, with a wide variety of people in between, all volunteers are an essential part of the organization and they have been since its founding in 1954. 65 years ago, 13 year-old Sid Stevens and 9 year-old Earl De La Perralle created what would become Sun Youth and managed to get their friends involved as volunteers. Over the years, with the invaluable contribution of countless volunteers, the founders were able to take the organization from a small sports and recreation club to one of the best-known charities in Montreal.

Today, Sun Youth can count on the support of over 1,800 volunteers every year, performing over 176,000 hours of volunteer work annually – the equivalent of 80 full-time jobs. Some of them have special needs and are on governmental programs that allow them to gain work experience and develop skills which will eventually lead them to the work market.

Sun Youth sees its volunteers as part of a big family. The organization is always looking for people to fill in different roles in its various activities. It seeks individuals for its customer services for roles such as counselors, delivery agents and receptionists. Volunteers can also give a hand in administrative support, accounting, data entry, IT support and secretarial work. The organization’s communications department is also looking for people with skills in computer graphics, photography, video editing, writing, proofreading and translation. Those interested in working with children can put their skills in sports animation, gardening animation, tutoring, nutrition science and physical training to good use. Finally, people looking for something more physical can contribute to Sun Youth through urban agriculture, carpentry, small manual work and manual handling.
