Volunteer

In response to the current aims of resettling Syrian refugees in the Peterborough area, we are building volunteer support groups.  Please head to the Refugee Resettlement Support page if you are interested in being involved in this capacity.

We could not operate nor reach our goals without the generous help of our volunteers. Some benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Sharing and making a difference
  • Gaining knowledge and learning new skills
  • Volunteer recognition events and training opportunities
  • Free admission to a number of events and activities
  • Making connections and learning about other cultures

Here are some of the general volunteering possibilities:

 To begin the volunteer application process, please complete the following:

  • A volunteer application form – Please return your completed form to NCC by mail, email or in person at our office.
  • Two reference request forms – we ask volunteers who are working directly with our clients to have two references from people who know them well but are not family members.  Please ask your two references to return their forms directly to NCC by mail, email or in person at our office.

Once we have received both your application form and 2 references, our staff will contact you again to arrange an informal interview where we can discuss the most suitable volunteering opportunities for you.
