Become A Volunteer Today

We continue to offer Storybook, Virtual, and MAP programming when enrolling youth on an as-per-needed basis.

If you select a program where we may not have any youth registered, you may receive a call to review other programming opportunities before moving forward with enrolment.

  • Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. Please also attest that you are 18 years of age or older.
  • Our waiting list for each program is constantly changing. Not all programs are available for new mentors at all times. If you select a program not currently open for enrolment you may receive a call to review other programming opportunities before moving forward with your application.
  • Having a vehicle for transportation is recommended, but not required to be a volunteer
  • Having a Manitoba Driver's License is preferred, but not required to be a volunteer.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

How The Volunteering Process Works

We are very pleased that you are considering becoming a mentor. Our enrollment process makes it easy for you. We have time commitments to suit every schedule and we have professional, experienced staff helping to guide you every step of the way. You are never alone in this process. Our commitment to you is that we will always be here for you. However, because of certain aspects of technology there are occasional online glitches.

If you ever fail to get a response – please call (204) 988-9200 ext. 119 for assistance to ensure your inquiry form did not fail to reach us.

  • Complete an initial intake with a staff person
  • Complete the online orientation
  • Apply for a one-to-one personal interview with an enrollment caseworker
  • Submits a criminal record check with vulnerable sector clearance, a child abuse registry check and three or four references
  • Successfully completes an orientation and pre-match training program
  • Is notified of their acceptance/non-acceptance


Our experienced matching process helps determine matching options that will work for you, and for our children and families. The more information we have about you, the young person and family, the better equipped we are to make strong matches.

  • The caseworker, now familiar with the volunteer and the children and youth waiting to be matched, discusses a potential match with the volunteer, the child or youth, and, depending on the program, with the family
  • The caseworker arranges for a meeting between you and the parent first, and then between the mentor, child, parent and staff
  • If everyone agrees, the match can begin!
