Volunteer Toronto website.
There are so many neat positions available. Should I be a Pet Visiting Volunteer and take either my active young cat, or affectionate old cat, to an old folks' home in Scarborough? Should I build on the ESL course I'm taking by being an ESL teaching assistant? How about a boys' cooking instructor in my old neighbourhood, or setting up a new children's library at the St. Felix Centre? Math tutoring or computer help are the obvious answers, since I am a math teacher by training, and programmer by profession. They need math tutors just four subway stops away from me.
This will require some thought, but I think the timing is good to contact a few places and set something up for the new year.
