About

The Residential Volunteer position provides an excellent opportunity for you to help people living with mental illness in a direct and meaningful way. The Residential team provides support for Guests in their off-work time: organizing activities, driving trips off-farm, assisting with activities of daily living, and most importantly, forming relationships with the people we serve. As a part of the team, you will have a chance to be a part of a progressive mental health recovery program that values community living and holistic healing. Some of our residential volunteers have an interest in eventually pursuing a post graduate degree in social work, psychiatry, or other related fields. This position provides an opportunity to gain important experience that provides a context for future studies in this field.
