The Mikey Young At Heart program has been expanded by offering high school students the opportunity to earn the volunteer hours they need to graduate, by learning CPR/AED through our free mobile app.
The Mikey Young At Heart App will teach thousands of students CPR/AED, making them more confident to use an AED or administer CPR, should the need ever arise. So start earning volunteer hours today, while you learn to save a life!
Leads Employment Services: Youth Leadership Development Program
Youth Leadership Development (YLD) program facilitated by Leads Employment Services, a leader in diversity hiring. Whether you want to meet new people, complete your high school volunteer hours, develop leadership, mentorship, and/or work-related skills, or find fun and meaningful ways to get more involved in your community, this program is for you. Who? Available to youth with and without disabilities between the ages of 15 and 30 who are living in Stratford Perth County. We are an inclusive program. What? YLD is a volunteer based program that works independently with each participant. Upon registration you will meet with a Youth Coach who will learn about your goals and interests to best match you with volunteer positions. You will also be given the opportunity to take part in training courses such as First Aid/CPR, Safe Food Handling, and Smart Serve. This past summer, volunteers have cared for kittens at the Alley Cat Cat Café, planted vegetables in The Local’s community garden, and hosted a yoga/meditation class for Emily Murphy Centre. Where? Volunteers have worked both in person and virtually. Want to volunteer virtually, but do not have access to a computer? We will provide participants with a laptop upon completing registration. Why? Have fun while giving back to your community and build new skills and experiences to prepare you for a successful future. When? Volunteer at your own pace with times and opportunities that best fit your schedule. Text or call Katelyn at 519 703 6017 or by email at [email protected] to begin registration or get more information. We cannot wait to meet you!
