Since its early days, volunteers have been at the heart of the CPCC – working alongside staff to strengthen the Centre’s capacity to deliver quality programs and services to the community. From those who assist on the front-line to those who work quietly behind the scenes providing leadership and support, our volunteers help to enrich the lives of the families and children we serve.
In 2011, the Board of Directors adopted the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement. In adopting the Code, The Caledon Parent-Child Centre commits to value and support the contribution of volunteers through respectful, meaningful and inclusive engagement.
The CPCC is currently seeking Board members from a diverse field of practice and stakeholder groups that reflect the community we serve to replace members who have reached the ends of their terms.
Through board diversity of age, strengths, ideas and backgrounds, the CPCC can continue to plan for the visibility and viability of our organization, it’s programs, community supports and the positive outcomes that means for the families and young children we support.

- Experience in one of the following areas: Legal, Governance/Risk Management, Finance, Human Resources, Fundraising, Community Outreach/Communications

“Over the past 8 years, my 3 girls have had the privilege of attending the Centre for educational programs or drop in play with either myself or our caregiver. In 2012, I became involved as a volunteer at the Centre, to give back to the organization that had become instrumental in my children’s educational and social development. It is through this opportunity that I have seen the organization’s true value and behind the scenes workings.”
