Volunteers Needed!

It takes a community to help government-assisted refugees in making Kingston home.

About a dozen newcomers arrive in Kingston every month as Government-assisted refugees and the best way for them to get settled is with community support. KEYS is asking for at least 40 volunteers to support and befriend an influx of immigrants. Our volunteers create social connections and become the face of Canada. Volunteers donate their time to help a family become part of our community. They can dine together, help with language and homework, go on outings, or be a tour guide.  While a volunteer can come from every age and background, we are especially looking for retirees to help out. Those new to Canada carry fears that they will experience discrimination. They are looking for ‘elders,’ those who are wise and experienced. Find out more information on our Volunteer Program here.

Watch our interview on Global News discusssing our campaign to recruit volunteers!
