Community Connectors Training Program – Request for Submissions

The Opportunity

We know that many program participants would benefit from learning from our senior volunteers, who have gained many skills prior to retirement. In keeping with both our agency’s needs to promote volunteerism including amongst seniors and, complementary, to engage volunteers, including seniors, with a broad range of skills in potential mentoring opportunities and to support their social participation and inclusiveness, our proposed Community Connectors program would provide a robust 8-week training (24 hours in total = 3 hours/week x 8 weeks) to CRC’s existing volunteers and select new volunteers to deliver enriched community service training in our combined 40 Oaks Drop-in space and Regent Park Community Food Centre. A significant number of these volunteers will be seniors (about 30), and other non-senior volunteers will be included in this cohort. The program will then be replicated with other volunteer groups.
