Volunteering in Sarnia-Lambton

VOLUNTEERING: A Great Way To Grow

Diners Club (Seniors Luncheon) On-Pause

Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, this program is currently

On-Pause

Attend one of our Diners Club luncheons to help serve our clients a nutritious meal. 

Our Diners Clubs are offered in Port Lambton, Corunna, Alvinston and Petrolia.

They offer a hot meal, and an opportunity for socializing with other seniors.  A guest speaker or entertainer follows the meal.

Volunteers assist with setting up tables, collecting money, serving the meal, and clean up. They are encouraged to join the clients at lunch (complimentary).

Group Visiting Leader

You can live in a building with lots of other people around and still be very lonely and isolated.  A team of two group visiting leaders go into a building where a lot of seniors live and lead scheduled times of guided discussion.  The aim is to assist them in getting to know one another and build friendships with those around them.

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.
