Why Volunteer With Us?

Daytrippers is a grassroots, Toronto-based charity run 100% by its volunteers. As a relatively young and small organization, volunteers can participate in a number of ways – vetting trip applications, securing fundraising, or running our social media channels, to name a few.

All volunteer positions are designed for young professionals with busy lives. Volunteers make a 1 year commitment, offering an average of 1-2 very flexible hours per week of their time. Committee meetings take place outside of normal business hours and can typically be accessed by conference call if necessary. All volunteers have the opportunity to be core to our decision making process.

As a volunteer, you will:

  • Make a difference. Whether you’re new to our team or have been involved for years, you can have a direct impact on the life of a child. Many volunteers find that creating positive change by helping kids participate in enriching learning experiences can be very fulfilling.
  • Develop new skills. Want to try something new? Interested in building skills that can also support you in your professional career?  Apply your skills, gain some new ones, and develop valuable leadership experience along the way.
  • Grow your network. Your fellow volunteers, Board of Directors and our professional and personal donors all become part of your personal and professional networks. Headquartered in the Toronto Financial district, our team comprises some of the best and brightest from the financial, legal and advisory industries.
  • Make our good work even better. Through participation at regular meetings, attending donor and volunteer events, and and by taking part in our volunteer survey, your input helps us continuously improve both the childrens’ and volunteers’ experience.
