As many know, Phelps would not be possible without its dedicated volunteers. Phelps volunteers attend our weekly programs, supporting elementary and high school students with their homework, to study for tests and in practicing their language skills. At the elementary level, volunteers also engage in hands-on learning activities and play games with our participants. Volunteers equally support our special events: they run the canteen during our softball tournament, dress up as mascots for our family literacy activities, act as flagmen during our 5KM race, among many other valuable tasks.
Since Fall 2018, volunteers have dedicated a combined 1530 hours! Last Friday, we took the opportunity to recognize our volunteers and invited them to an appreciation lunch at Dufferin Heights Golf Club. This informal event brought volunteers and staff together to thank the volunteers for their devotion to the students and to Phelps’ mission.
Volunteering with Phelps Helps is a rewarding process that does not require any specific skills. Sign up as a volunteer or learn more about volunteering with Phelps by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
