The DTES Neighbourhood House is looking for volunteers to join the Banana Beat and the Mobile Smoothie Project, part of our Nutritional Outreach program. The team visits a number of partner organizations in the DTES on the third or fourth Tuesday and Wednesday of each month (before income assistant cheques are distributed) and shares nutrition in the form of potassium and other nutrients (through various fruit, bananas and soy milk) to our neighbours.
The Kinnections Program connects Aboriginal youth aged 16-19 years old with volunteer mentors. Our goal is to provide youth with life skills training in hopes that these skills will assist them with their transition into adulthood. Youth set their own goals and volunteer mentors assist youth to achieve those goals.
