Volunteering Your Time at Sistering 
Sistering volunteers participate in a broad range of activities, from serving a holiday meal to sharing professional skills on an on-going basi. Sistering volunteers are essential to our ability to continue offering life-enhancing programs to women with very little access to even the basics of everyday life.

Want to know more? We would be delighted to give you a tour of our agency and explain our services and programs. We can also arrange to have a speaker or two attend your next meeting to talk about the positive impact Sistering has on our community. For more information please call 416-926-9762 ext. 239.

What Sistering Volunteers Do

Programs Services: Program volunteers use their hobbies and specialized skills to run groups or workshops such as: ESL classes, woodworking, aromatherapy, massage, yoga, facials/manicures, beading, crafts, etc.

Occasional Volunteers: Volunteers help out on an “occasional basis” at special events, outings, and seasonal projects.

Groups and Student Placements: For student placements and corporate or community volunteer group initiatives, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (416) 926-9762 ext. 239 or

Committee and Board Work
Board: Sistering recruits community volunteers who have Board and governance expertise and specialized skills to sit on our Board of Directors.

Fundraising Committee: Volunteers work with Development staff to produce Sistering’s annual signature event “Funny Girls and Dynamic Divas”.

Terms for Volunteering
Sistering is a daytime, women’s drop-in and most of the “non-committee” volunteer activities occur during daytime, and often weekday, hours. All regular weekly volunteers are required to attend orientation and screening activities, which include:

  • an orientation session
  • a formal interview
  • on-going and “on the job” training and support
  • Diversity Training and other volunteer workshops.
