Application Form

Are You Handy?

Veith House is seeking volunteers who are handy and want to help. We have lots of work that needs to be done. There is painting, organizing, and small repairs.

Community Gardeners

Veith House has its own garden patch. No green thumb required. Must be willing to get dirty and love weeds. Really it is all about the fun of gardening, watching something grow and meeting new people.

Event Planning Committee Members

Veith House hosts a number of events. We are always in need of volunteers who want to help with event planning. This work involves working on a committee, taking on tasks and participating in the delivery of the event. Some volunteers want to do this work all year long; others like to help with a favourite event. This year Veith House did: Doors Open, the Hydrostone Tree Lighting, Holly Carr Scarf Painting, and the NECC BBQ. Many hands really make light work.

Front Desk/Receptionist

Veith House is seeking interested volunteers to act as greeters and receptionists. Typically volunteers take one shift per week. This opportunity would be great for university or college students wanting to learn about human services. It would also appeal to those who want some experience in a reception role or just want to be involved.  Duties include: answering phones, greeting community members and visitors, maintaining the reception area and its information, keeping a pot of coffee going and other activities that can be done at the desk. Potential volunteers should be comfortable with children, people living with and surviving mental illness, disability, and other life circumstances.

Social Media Coordinator

We are seeking an individual who can use HootSuite to update our Facebook and Twitter pages. The role would include event promotion, awareness about Veith House’s work, items of interest and health promoting messaging.

Enjoy working with kids?

We are always looking for individuals to work with our Youth Program Coordinator to create fun and educational programs for our after school program. We also have March Break and summer camps each year. 

Veith House Newsletter Coordinator

We are looking for an individual who can do the Veith House newsletter page via our website. We are also looking for someone who can make posters and promote events.
