The Carlington Summit
by Frances Tanner.

Is it time to exercise some of your hidden talents? If you have been thinking about turning over a new leaf this fall, consider a volunteer assignment with Carlington Community and Health Services.

You'll get the proven benefits of volunteering: new contacts, new skills (or a chance to keep old skills sharp), and the knowledge that you've been useful in improving your own community. Whether you are available weekly or less frequently, days or evenings or weekends, we can use your talents in many different areas.

Some of our current openings:

Fun and Fitness Instructor:

A woman is needed to lead a group of women from many cultural backgrounds in low-impact activities followed by a social hour animated by CCHS staff.

Childcare Provider/Program Assistant:

Assist staff in set-up, program and clean-up. You have experience working with children aged 1 day to 10 years and are sensitive to poverty issues.

Clothing Exchange Coordinator:

Organize and sort clothing donations and work with clients using the exchange services. You are team-oriented and sensitive to poverty issues.

Children's Music Program Instructor:

Share your musical expertise in vocal, recorder, percussion or piano with young school-age children. You are mature, reliable and energetic.

Knitting Instructor:

A west-end boarding home requires a knitting instructor to work with a group of women including beginners and advanced knitters. You have a sensitivity for mental health issues.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering with CCHS, please call our Coordinator of Volunteers, Melanie Porter at 722-4000. There are volunteer orientation sessions every two weeks.
