We'll provide you with a FREE 4-hour certificate training. This training will get you ready to:
-Offer supervision and companionship
-Help improve strength, balance and mobility while preventing falls, so our clients can remain independent in their own homes
We'll match you with one client for a 12-week cycle, with visits made once per week for approximately 1 hour.
Volunteers provide an opportunity for the client to be more than a diagnosis; creating a safe place for clients and their families to share the physical, emotional and spiritual changes they are experiencing. A visit might include legacy work, sharing histories, talking of gardening, or sitting quietly.
Visits usually take place once a week for about 1-2 hours in the client’s home. At times the volunteer may provide respite for the caregiver. Dependent on the client’s ability may take the client out for a walk or a drive as well.
Visits can be weekly or every 2 weeks for as little as one hour total time commitment for an in-home visit or a couple of hours if you care to take them to an activity in which you share an interest (coffee & shopping, an art show, live music, shopping, bowling or even for a walk by the lake). By volunteering, you may also be providing some much-needed support to a caregiver or family member simply by visiting one of our wonderful clients.
On a weekly or bi-weekly you can visit one of our wonderful clients' in their home. During your visit you can chat over coffee, play a game of cards, visit the library or museum, run some errands together - like grocery shopping...these are just a few ideas.
You'll be helping keep seniors and psychically challenged adults active, independent and happy.

Become a Nanny Angel! How you can help:

A companion does not require personal experience with the justice system. Companion’s become an ally by providing support to program participants as they reintegrate into the community.
2. PEER MENTOR
A peer mentor is someone who has lived experience with the justice system and wishes to use that experiential knowledge to provide peer support to program participants.
Peers and companions will meet with program participants in the community once a week for a minimum of an hour. There will be "check-ins" and "check-outs" with the volunteer coordinator. There will be a monthly meeting for volunteers to get together and debrief their volunteer experience.
Peers and companions support program participants with their reintegration goals and do not perform counselling or case management duties. Peers and companions will support clients to be independent and provide guidance when a program participant is struggling. The only difference between the two roles is a peer has experiential knowledge and a companion does not have that lived experience. Therefore, the dynamic of the relationship will be slightly different. However, both roles are equally important to help program participants reintegrate back into the community and reduce the barriers of oppression.

Key goals of Focus on Nature are to inspire young people to explore and appreciate nature through photography and to connect with their creativity. This is done by teaching students the "elements of design", and by exploring local natural areas as photographers, with eyes wide open to the beauty and complexity of nature. Students are encouraged to slow down and to look for the elements of design in nature, and they are reminded that nature has always acted as inspiration for art, design, and architecture. At the end of each workshop, there is a celebration with a slideshow of each students' 10 favourite images, and we give "extension activities" to teachers and students so that they can continue to learn.

We need to create policies and procedures for making the public aware of these products, and how to gain enough funds for more printing of them. We also need to decide what projects to choose in this "fresh start" after our production year, that would be consistent with our Mission of inspiring today's citizens to take action on their current environmental concerns.
