Volunteers are valued members of our team! Each day, volunteers give their time to make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and their families.
You can volunteer with us by working with children, behind the scenes, or out in the community. We strive to match your skills and availability with a meaningful volunteer opportunity within the Algoma District

Let’s address some of the questions and concerns you may have about volunteering with us.
Is there a specific age or stage of life that is preferred for volunteers?
We have a wide array of volunteer opportunities for individuals of all stages in life, including:
- Post-secondary students looking for volunteer placement hours and work experience
- Individuals seeking employment in need of current work experience
- Working adults wanting to give back to their community
- Active retirees who enjoy spending time with children
We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are elected from within the community.
Tutors are matched with a child or youth to support their academic abilities and assist in areas where help is needed.
Volunteers are needed throughout the year to knit various items for infants and children, including baby layettes, mittens, scarves, and slipper socks. These items are distributed through our Project Noah program as and directly to our families and foster homes as required.
For the past several years, CAS Algoma has run an Annual Christmas Program to assist families and help make Christmas special for their children. If you would like to become a Holiday Hero, please reach out and let us know how many children you would like to sponsor? Preference on Boy/Girl or Age?
From there, we can provide more details about the program and match you up with a child or family in need of some holiday cheer!
