The Work of Welcoming is a Community Effort
Welcoming our new neighbours takes the entire community.
Welcoming happens in many ways:
- the attitudes we hold
- the way we greet people
- the level of cultural competence we attain in the jobs we do
- many more areas
- not least of which is the hours we volunteer to make a difference in the lives of those who are new in our community.
There are a number of agencies in our community that have developed expertise in certain aspects of serving vulnerable people. Your skills and interests will help you decide which agency’s work you could best support as a volunteer.
MJMC's role and how you can suppport us:
In order to protect our clients’ privacy and rights, and to ensure that those helping them are equipped to provide the best support possible, MJMC has a formal process through which we screen and equip our volunteers. You can read more about the process on our Volunteer Application page.
Thank you for your interest.
