Guelph Dance is a wonderful arts organization to be apart of because it is small and the people that are involved are truly committed to creating fabulous programming. The commitment is high and there is room for creativity and innovation; because of its size, your voice can be heard. Guelph Dance is in its 23rd year and it has created a very unique and exciting contemporary dance festival that proves to awe audiences every year. Additionally we offer a variety of educational and community engagement programming year round.
We are currently looking for new blood to join our Board of Directors and seek to involve people from diverse backgrounds, abilities and ages, who have expertise in sectors outside the arts and can support our fundraising and strategic initiatives such as policy development, succession planning, community outreach and long term sustainability.

Wellington Early Learning Centres
WELC is located inside Taylor Evans Public School, but meetings are currently being held via zoom
Our Board of Directors is a mix of parents with children in the program, and community members. Board meetings are once per month, and we try to keep them informal and friendly. If you have been to meetings for other boards, with unions, etc. they would have been of a much more formal nature, but as we are focused on the good of the children, it allows us to have a more relaxed atmosphere in our meetings.
The role of the board is to govern and assist with policy and overall direction of the centre. Some responsibilities may include, assisting with financials, assisting with advertising, fundraising, policy review. We do not, as a rule, get involved with the day to day operation of the centre. We are, however, available to the supervisor as a resource for consultation and advice. All of our meetings are currently being held via Zoom.

Downtown Guelph Community Health Centre - 176 Wyndham Street North
Guelph CHC's program, WE Breastfeed and Chestfeed supports parents feeding human milk in any way, in any amount. Parents can receive support in two ways. One-to-one telephone support with trained and experienced parent-volunteers or weekly online Breastfeeding Cafes.
Administrative support volunteers work with the program coordinator and support data collection, scheduling volunteers, program evaluation entry, assist with digital marketing plan development and distribution of promotional material.
This would be a great role for someone who is interested in learning more about breast or chestfeeding, program coordination and promotion or needs to get their 40 OSSD hours.
IMPORTANT information: Volunteers in this role do not need breast or chestfeeding experience. They do need to have an enthusiastic and positive attitude towards breast or chestfeeding and human milk.
