Volunteering for BINGO is so easy! Gone are the days of being a ‘runner’ because everything is done electronically so that all that is involved is clearing tables and promoting LEO. A short 30-minute training session is required and 2 hours of your time which provides the organization with BINGO shares. It’s a fantastic fundraiser!
Bingo sessions occur two (2), to three (3) times a month for two (2) hours slots.
No handling of cash is required.

Visit a lonely and isolated senior on a weekly basis. You can take them out or stay in and visit. Our clients have lived productive lives but now find themselves alone and staring at the walls, unable to get out without a friend. They have much to offer someone who takes time to listen!
Virtually visit with a senior once or twice a week using an internet platform.
Program Volunteers Needed
Rebound is looking for volunteers who are 18+ to assist with our 10-week programs. If you are an adult with a big heart who would enjoy working with youth during our evening programs, this is the opportunity for you.
Program volunteers work with youth ages 8 – 17 one night a week for 10 weeks. These volunteers spend 2.5 – 3 hours per week with youth and provide a supportive atmosphere that allows youth to open up and honestly examine their lives and actions. Program volunteers work directly with the youth and are responsible for engaging youth, encouraging them to participate, and help them with goal setting.
Program volunteers must attend an orientation, provide 2 references, a vulnerable sector police clearance and attend two observation sessions in order to fully participate as a volunteer. Please check out our wide range of programs at www.reboundonline.com to see what we have to offer the youth in our community.
The In-School Mentoring program is a fun- based Mentoring Program that matches a caring adult volunteer on a one to one basis with a child at a local elementary school. For one hour a week mentors with their mentees engage in fun activities such as board games, crafts or just hanging out on the playground. All activities take place on school grounds during school hours. The children in the program benefit from the extra attention and friendship that an adult mentor can provide.
Big Bunch Mentor
Big Bunch Mentors are adult volunteers of good character who share 3 hours every two weeks from October to June within a group mentoring program for children and youth. The Big Bunch program provides girls and boys a mentoring experience in a group setting. This program pairs 2 to 3 mentees from the Big Brother Big Sister waiting list with one mentor. Through regular outings organized by the agency, a relationship is developed between the mentor and mentee as well as between mentees. The program promotes healthy socialization and new experiences for both the mentor and mentee.
