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 mandate of the Mentorship Program is to connect Aboriginal youth, ages 12 to 15, to volunteer adult mentors in the community. With the support of positive role-models, youth have the opportunity to realize their strengths and work towards future goals. Our aim is to empower youth and provide them with the tools they need to make positive choices and changes, helping them grow into strong, capable and confident adults.
