Volunteer Coordinator – Together Project

Together Project, a project on MakeWay’s shared platform, connects refugee newcomers and volunteers to build stronger, more integrated communities. Our Welcome Group Program matches volunteers with newly arrived refugees and refugee claimants for meaningful social support focused on settlement and integration. Over six months, and with the guidance and support of the Volunteer Coordinator, these volunteers help newcomers overcome challenges to their integration. Volunteers can help newcomers practice English, navigate services like healthcare, find a job, engage in education, or simply build their social networks. The ultimate goal is the empowerment of newcomers to make progress towards their individual goals, and to provide a platform for the community to engage in that process. Together Project recruits volunteers for the Welcome Group Program in Toronto, Mississauga, and Ottawa.

Together Project is seeking a motivated individual, who is passionate about building welcoming communities, to join our team as Volunteer Coordinator. The Volunteer Coordinator will support Together Project’s Co-Directors in the delivery of the Welcome Group Program. The Coordinator will serve as the main point of contact for volunteers interested or involved in the Welcome Group Program. They will coordinate community outreach in order to attract new volunteers, manage volunteer onboarding, and support volunteer program participation. They’ll also have the opportunity to deliver the program directly themselves, supporting volunteers as they assist newcomer households.
