Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? Sault Community Career Centre is a recognized leader in the settlement and integration of newcomers and refugees to Sault Ste. Marie. Refugee families are settling successfully, thanks to our network of volunteers, partner organizations, and businesses. With additional families on the way, we are looking for more volunteers.  

As a volunteer, your role will be to provide guidance to refugee families through their transition and to offer assistance with common everyday tasks. You might help collect household items like towels and blankets, provide transportation to places like the grocery store or the bank, assist them with travel to medical and dental appointments, visit with them, or accompany them to welcome events in the community. Through their involvement, volunteers help create a supportive community around newcomers that make them feel welcomed and connected.

If you are interested in volunteering with Sault Community Career Centre’s New to the Sault program, please contact Brenda Cooper, Volunteer Coordinator, at or 705.542.9088. You can also fill out the Interested in Becoming a Volunteer? online form on our website.

Upcoming volunteer orientation sessions are scheduled for Thursday, April 18 from 6:30 to 8 pm and Thursday, May 9 from 6:30 to 8 pm.
