One-to-One Support Volunteer


Canadian Mental Health Association, Waterloo Wellington

   About the Position

Impact Statement
Volunteers provide an essential service to Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington (CMHA WW) clients by providing one-to-one support. One-to-One Support Volunteers will provide goal-oriented, community-based support to individuals who may have mental health issues and/or developmental challenges.

This family is seeking a youth (ages 18-26) volunteer with a strong interest in video gaming, to be a peer that can engage with the youth client socially and be a baseline example of work/play balance.

The match works together (with the support of the staff supervisor and client family) to create a relationship that expresses care, challenges growth, provides support, and expands possibilities. Together, they decide what to do based on common interests. Goals could include participation in recreational activities & social outings or developing life skills.

Volunteers will participate in the community or the individual's home. Volunteers are matched based on their geographic location and mutual interests.
