Senior’s Program


VCYR Seniors Program

At Volunteer Connect York Region (VCYR), we’re on a mission to revolutionize our Seniors program to better serve the evolving needs of both our valued non profit partners and our treasured senior volunteers in the post-pandemic landscape. As the world emerged from lockdown, we successfully reignited the spirit of volunteerism, achieving an impressive ~72% surge in student registrants. However, we recognized the unique challenges faced by our senior volunteers, with fewer opportunities available for them.

In response, VCYR is embarking on an exciting and transformative journey. We’re stepping up to address the pressing shortages of volunteers during office hours experienced by our charity partners, while also creating the perfect platform for older adults to engage in meaningful and fulfilling opportunities.

This project will usher in a new era of volunteering, introducing innovative types of service and adopting a fresh approach to attract and empower older volunteers. We’re redefining the volunteering experience, and we want you to be a part of this exciting adventure! Together, we’ll build a stronger, more connected community that thrives post-pandemic. Join us in shaping the future of volunteerism at VCYR!
