Little Time: Big Difference

7% cent of Canadians volunteer, giving about 156 hours annually or 3 hours a week to make their communities better places to live. If you already volunteer in our community, thank you. You are a hero to those you help. If you’re in the market for a rewarding volunteer experience, connect with us. By generously giving a few hours of your time you can improve the lives of a person living with a brain injury or a developmental disability.

You can help someone achieve their dreams of:

  • Attending special events such as a hockey game, church or holiday party;
  • Learning new skills such as sewing, knitting, computers, or baking;
  • Exercising and learning how to keep themselves healthy by walking, bicycling or swimming; or
  • Developing a new interest that they have learned from being with you.

At Pathways to Independence we thrive when our clients and our volunteers both have opportunities to live their best lives.

Supporting people their best lives in living

Become a Best Buddy!

Best Buddies Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to enhancing our community through one-to-one friendships between individuals with intellectual disabilities and students. It gives the people we support the chance to have experiences that most people take for granted – going for coffee, out to a movie, or simply enjoying the company of a good friend.

There is a Best Buddies chapter at Loyalist College.

For more information about Best Buddies visit their website at Best Buddies.
