Youth Leaders In Parkdale

The PCIC Youth Leaders program connects Parkdale youth to volunteer opportunities in the community.

The Youth Leaders in Parkdale initiative allows youth to develop their work-related skills while contributing positively to our community.

Our program goal is to bring together Parkdale community agencies and Parkdale youth to develop strong volunteer partnerships that will benefit both groups

Our Program will

  • Assist youth to find a meaningful volunteer placement
  • Provide youth with Volunteer Orientation Workshops
  • Develop youth capacities and skills through a variety of workshop and leadership opportunities
  • Ensure concerns of participating youth and agencies are heard and resolved in a timely manner
  • Follow-up with participating agencies to maintain volunteer stability over the course of the program
  • Celebrate youth volunteerism and community involvement
  • Promote agencies' events and local initiatives
