Your Connection to Canada’s Volunteering Community

Family Volunteering

Family volunteering involves more than one person in a household or extended family. It includes different generations in a family, volunteering together.

Here are some examples of volunteer activities that family members can participate in together:

  • Serving food at a food bank
  • Dropping off warm clothes during the holidays
  • Reading to senior citizens
  • Planting a community garden
  • Walking animals at an animal shelter
