Volunteer Services Program

“Volunteering is an excellent way to provide meaning in your life

and help give back to your local community.”

-Peter Muggeridge




Let me take a minute to introduce myself! My name is Thomas Barker and I am the Volunteer/Communications Coordinator for Community Living Kirkland Lake.  I am very excited that you have decided to check out our Volunteer  Services Program!  We at CLKL recognize the need for and value of a volunteer service.  We understand the importance that volunteers bring to our agency and the individuals within. We pride ourselves in working with each volunteer to create a warm environment where our volunteers feel like a part of the team and where their hard work and dedication is both recognized and appreciated. 

As the Volunteer Coordinator it is my responsibility to plan, develop and implement the volunteer services program. I recruit volunteers, train and match them accordingly. I am the liaise person between the volunteers, our individuals, management and staff as well as organizing fundraising events within our community.

Now  that you know  what I do I guess the question that is left is what do you do as a volunteer? I have taken this time to answer just that and more!  I hope you find the following information helpful.  Thanks for visiting!
