Help children. Change a Life. Become a Mentor.  
 
We need volunteers aged 16 to 29 to go one-on-one with at-risk and/or newcomer children and youth! 
 
Who are we? 
The goal of The Peer Project is simple: help at-risk and newcomer children and youth find their way, by pairing them with a youth mentor who can offer support and guidance. 
 
How does it work? 
We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests, background and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us. 
You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a younger youth to stay on the right track. You can volunteer on your schedule and close to home. Applicants must live in Toronto or York Region. Please do not apply if live outside these areas. 
 
What’s in it for you? 
In a tough job market, being a mentor shows community leadership, an attribute that all employers love. You’ll make a real difference that counts in the life of a child. You get to do fun stuff for FREE, like attending professional sporting events such as Raptors or Jays games, our annual 3 day Summer Camp up North, and other cool field trips such as Canada’s Wonderland or Wild Water Kingdom.

Community Fairs, Festivals and Events
Can you put up (with) an actor for a few nights? Theatre artists coming to perform in the Newmarket National Play Festival in July require local housing. Because the festival only runs one week, artists' earnings are not enough to cover the cost of rent. Billets however, make wonderful house sitters, dog walkers and plant waterers. We are looking for people who can provide a private bedroom and access to a washroom for one of these highly skilled theatre professionals. Ideally, we are looking for hosts for the first two weeks of July (July 2 - 14) and for the second two weeks (July 15 - 28). Artists are at the theatre most of the day and evening and need nothing more than a place to sleep. Most go home on the weekends.
